IB Diploma Programme
The IB Diploma Programme is a rigorous, academically challenging and balanced programme designed to prepare students for success at university and life beyond.
The IBDP is the world’s most prestigious international qualification, respected and sought after by the world’s best universities. A core focus of the whole IB curriculum is to develop internationally minded young people, and encourage critical thinking and continuous self-refection, both in academic courses and through extra-curricular activities.
The IB Diploma curriculum is made up of 6 subject groups and the core, comprising theory of knowledge (TOK), the extended essay and creativity, action, service (CAS). The core is a compulsory part of the IB Diploma. Students should choose 6 subjects, 1 from each group with 3 at Higher Level (HL) and 3 at Standard Level (SL).
To ensure this we look for the following as minimum entry requirements:
- at least 6 grade A* - Cs at IGCSE or equivalent
- for HL subjects - grade B or above (Maths and Physics require an A grade)
- an outstanding behaviour record or external reference
Some individual subjects will also have their own grade requirements.
