Message from Our Head of IBDP

Recent events worldwide have demonstrated to us all the importance and benefits of developing and using critical and creative thinking.

  • British Standard 3

It has been a pleasure to see how well our students in the IB are able to adapt both to returning to school and studying in the same room as classmates and teachers, as well as being able to learn online. The skills our students have developed in recent months through collaboration online will serve them well in the IB programme, and also after gradutation from TBS. 

The IB place a large value on the development and evaluation of thinking skills in our students. In the Learner Profile, the IB define thinking skills across their programmes as “Thinking… to exercise initiative in applying thinking skills critically and creatively to recognize and approach complex problems, and make reasoned, ethical decisions.” Peter Facione wrote in “Critical Thinking: What It Is and Why It Counts?” (2015) that critical thinking is the ability to interpret, analyse, make inferences, evaluate, explain, and self-regulate. 

Our students’ critical thinking skills are fostered across all their subject areas where students are encouraged to discuss, analyse, interpret, experiment, describe, amongst many of their learning approaches which develop their thinking skills. Bouygues, in the Harvard Business Review (2019) suggests the simple habits of questioning, reasoning and diversification can be encouraged in order to develop critical thinking. It is exciting to see our students in lessons where they are questioning and applying their understanding from their learning across other subject areas, and using this to build not only their subject knowledge but also their critical thinking in their subject areas.
