The IB is an internationally recognised qualification made up of six subjects including English, Maths, Science, a modern foreign language, an Art and a Humanities subject. You also get involved in community projects and write a research-based essay. The course is equivalent to studying a full A Level course and involves exams and coursework
We were one of the first colleges in the country to offer this challenging course and our results over the last 19 years have been excellent. You’ll be in small classes with experienced and inspiring teachers and a whole range of materials to access to help you learn
Potential progression options for courses in this subject area include:
- Many IB students plan ahead to take gap years and apply to university during that year, supported by the college. For example, one of the students who finished last year is currently working with International Citizen Service in Ghana and lots are travelling in all sorts of exciting places (for example, New Zealand, Vietnam, Kenya).
- Nearly all applicants get their first choice places at university including, in 2015, one student recently progressed to the University of Oxford to read Russian and French and many went on to Russell Group universities.
