  • Learn About the The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP)

    The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) is widely regarded as the world’s premier post-16 qualification, offering students a wide range of subjects and opportunities to develop their social and leadership skills.  The IBDP is universally recognised as the best possible preparation for entering the world of the 21st century.  It is unique in that it is based on no particular national education system, offering instead a breadth and balance that affords our students a wider range of choices when it comes to selecting university courses.

    The aim of the IBDP is to develop internationally minded people who, recognising their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world.
