The International Baccalaureate Programme (IB) is a course of study designed to meet the educational requirements of students aged between 16 and 18 years. The IB Diploma Programme (DP) is a well-rounded, rigorous course of study, devised to develop students with skills for the 21st Century, who are informed global citizens. It aims to help students to develop the knowledge, attitudes and skills they need to participate actively and responsibly in a changing and increasingly interrelated world.
The programme reflects the IB commitment to internationalism through second language learning and through some literature requirements in English. The programme includes learning outside the classroom through the extended essay and the community, and to independent learning through research.
