The International Baccalaureate Programme is a wonderful course of study designed to meet the educational requirements of students aged between 16 and 18 years. The IB Diploma Programme (IBDP) is a well-rounded, rigorous and academic course of study, devised to develop students with skills for the 21st Century, who are informed global citizens. The two-year course aims to help students to develop their knowledge, attitudes and skills they require to participate actively and responsibly in a changing and increasingly intercultural world.
The programme reflects the IB commitment to internationalism through second language learning and also via 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.
Students require 24 points but need to have the correct combination of points in HL and SL subjects plus the core EE/TOK/IA. We guide students in subject choice, university choices as well as combinations of higher level and standard level subject combinations.
We are always proud of every student at Meadows in our post 16 provision.
