With a proven track record of graduate alumni studying at many of the top universities around the world every year, learning at IBSB is much more than just passing exams with high grades.
The Secondary School Curriculum follows the National Curriculum for England offers our students a rich learning environment, challenging our students to set high goals and to strive for academic excellence in a truly international context. Our classes are taught by an international team of qualified, experienced native English and International teachers teaching individual subjects (English, Mathematics, Science, Computer Science, Arts, and Humanities) from Key Stage 3 up until the Key Stage 5 (referred to as the 6th Form).
In Key Stage 3, students are encouraged to extend themselves both academically and socially. They have their lessons with specialist teachers, attending lessons in English, Mathematics, Science, a Modern Foreign Language (Spanish, German, or French), Geography, History, ICT, Art, PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic education), and PE. In addition to these core subjects, students also have the opportunity to experience new activities, sports, hobbies, arts and crafts, through the IBSB Club Programme that runs during the lunch breaks. There are a number of day trips and residential trips offered throughout the year, including the start of year Outward Bound Trip to help the students bond, the annual IBSB Ski Trip, and the end of Year Class Trip to celebrate the end of the year and all that has been achieved. And of course there are the student social dances that take place under the supervision of teachers, which are always a popular addition to the school calendar.
