- IB Diploma Programme
The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Programme learner profile describes a broad range of human capacities and responsibilities that go beyond academic success.
They imply a commitment to help all members of the school community learn to respect themselves, others and the world around them.
Each of the IB® programmes is committed to the development of students according to the IB® learner profile.
The profile aims to develop learners who are:
Students at International Baccalaureate® (IB) World Schools are given a unique education as the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO) states in their website. The students will:
- be encouraged to think independently and drive their own learning
- take part in programmes of education that can lead them to some of the highest-ranking universities around the world
- become more culturally aware, through the development of a second language
- be able to engage with people in an increasingly globalised, rapidly changing world.
IB® students often perform better
IB® World School students develop strong academic, social and emotional characteristics. They are also likely to perform well academically – often better than students on other programmes.
Students on the IB® Diploma Programme (DP) are likely to enroll at top universities, and students on the Primary Years Programme (PYP) and Middle Years Programme (MYP) outperform other students in a number of areas.
From 6 to 12 years of age. The Primary Years Programme encourages students to:
- Stimulation of the will to learn
- Interdisciplinary projects so that students put into practice what they have leant in the various areas.
This stage focuses on investigating and discovering the world, using cross-curricula themes.
The IB® Primary Years Programme prepares students for lifelong independent learning and encourages a student personality that is active, sympathetic, respectful and participative.
We teach trilingual programme, with 70% in English, 15% in Spanish and 15% in Catalan, and introduce a fourth language (French or German) from year 5 of Primary. This percentage is also applied in the MYP.
IB® teaching and learning is based on interaction between inquiry, action and reflection.
IB pedagogy is expressed in every aspect of the Middle Years Programme teaching and learning experience with a focus on:
- Concept-based learning
- Language and identity
- Diversity in learning and inclusion
- Rigorous academic curriculum with meaningful assessment
- Community Service
The IB® Diploma Programme is a challenging two year pre-university curriculum, primarily aimed at students aged 16 to 18. It leads to a qualification that is widely recognised by the world’s leading universities.
Students learn more than just a body of knowledge. The Diploma Programme prepares students for university and encourages them to:
- Ask challenging questions
- Learn how to learn using the IB Approaches to Learning
- Develop a strong sense of their own identity and culture
- Develop the ability to communicate with and understand people from other countries and cultures
- Flourish physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically
- Explore the nature of knowledge through the programme’s unique theory of knowledge course.
