Our International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma 

Our 16 to 18-year-olds study for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP).

The IB Diploma is a comprehensive, two-year programme. It’s unique because it isn’t based on a particular national education system; instead, it provides a considered balance between global experiences and academic specialisation. This develops the skills required by the world’s best universities and leading employers.


IB subject choices explained

Our students study six IBDP subject groups: Language and Literature, Language Acquisition, Individuals and Societies, Sciences, Mathematics, and Creative Arts. Three of these subject groups are taken at higher level and three at standard level.


Your child will also need to complete the core programme – Theory of Knowledge, Extended Essay, and Creativity, Activity and Service – to achieve their full Diploma.



Students need to get at least 24 points to pass the IBDP, including a minimum of 12 in higher level subjects and nine in standard level subjects. Completing the core programme scores three points.
