IB World Schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.
The school is committed to offering a broad curriculum up to the age of 18/19 for all our students with compulsory study of English, mathematics, science, languages and humanities.
Our bilingual model, unique in the region, offers students the scope to explore advanced language learning and studying subjects through other languages but is also accessible to students with a good GCSE in French, German or Spanish.
Please get in touch with us via the contact form below if you would like to discuss studying with us next academic year.

*Should we have sufficient interest to offer another language in group A or B (e.g. Polish or Italian), we would be happy to look into it, so please don’t hesitate to contact us to register your interest. At any rate, Polish and Italian are available as a self-taught language A Standard level group. For other languages – please get in touch.
There will be a number of entry tests. These tests are to make sure that the student can follow the curriculum and achieve the IB. These tests are explicitly not aimed at discouraging students from applying. Students should not have to prepare for these tests, other than being rested and ready to sit them. This year, they will be taken from home, supervised via a google meet.
