As an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, we are recognised for our commitment to providing an all-round education that encourages students to thrive in our connected world. The prestigious IB qualification is highly popular with top-ranking universities looking to offer places to the brightest candidates and we are ranked 6th for the IB in UK small cohort schools*. We offer a wide range of A Level and GCSE courses that provide students with a traditional UK route to university and are proud to be the pioneers of the University Foundation Programme, a modern qualification that offers international students an alternative bridge to top UK universities. All of our programmes embody our core value of offering a well-rounded education that inspires our students to become empowered and achieve the best outcomes in life.We recognise the importance of a student achieving their university goal. However, we do not only view success by a list of rankings and league tables, but also by helping our students find the right university for them. Our in-house careers counsellor and higher education team are dedicated to securing the very best university places for our students. We also partner with over 40+ universities, providing students access to resources and university staff members throughout their university application process.
