Pathway 1

IB Diploma Programme

A programme of study that values breadth of understanding and development of academic skills necessary for university, the IB diploma is a perfect pathway for those who wish to retain a broad curriculum as they enter Post-16 and ready themselves for the best universities around the world.

IB Diploma Programme

The IB diploma promotes the education of the whole person, emphasising intellectual, personal, emotional and social growth through all domains of knowledge. By focusing on knowledge, skills, independence, critical and creative thinking, and international-mindedness, it offers a truly international and excellent education.

All IB subjects have a mixture of internal and external assessments and offer a broader range of learning than other Post-16 qualifications. The Core component of the IB Diploma Programme includes Theory of Knowledge (TOK); Creativity, Action, and Service (CAS); and the Extended Essay (EE). This ensures that students understand in much greater depth, have opportunity to participate and volunteer in a range of worthwhile activities, and develop true academic rigour in their studies. This is why leading universities in the world, including Ivy League and Russell Group, readily accept the IB diploma as entrance to their courses.

Entrance onto the IBDP is supported by a minimum of five GCSEs at grade 6 or above. It is further suggested that anyone wishing to study IB subjects at higher level secure a grade 7 or above in those subjects.
