IGCSE (Years 10&11)
At the beginning of Year 10 PBIS students make choices about which subjects they will study for their first international qualification, the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE). This certificate is awarded by an examining board in the United Kingdom and is the world’s most popular international qualification for 14 to 16 year olds. Widely recognised and respected, it provides an excellent academic grounding for further study.
The range of IGCSE’s available to students in Year 10 is wide, varied and challenging. A bespoke and individualised learning programme is designed for each student which is focused on delivering the very best outcomes and to provide a pathway to future studies in the IB programme and beyond.

IB (Years 12&13)
Starting in Year 12, PBIS offers two strands of the IB programme, the Diploma Programme and the Careers Programme.
The Diploma Programme is internationally recognised and accepted by Universities across the globe. PBIS has a long track record with the Diploma programme, having first introduced it in 1998. It is a rigorous, academically challenging and balanced programme during which students study 6 subjects, one from each subject group, and complete additional projects. With up to 7 subjects to choose from in each group PBIS offers students an unparalleled level of choice and guidance within the Diploma Programme.
The newer Careers Programme is a unique and ground breaking course which addresses the needs of students who wish to study a vocationally orientated programme. It consists of a vocational core in areas such as Creative Media Production and Performance, and is supplemented by Diploma courses and leads to University, apprenticeships or employment.
