IB Evaluation - An International Standard of Excellence

2018 marks an important year for the College in relation to our College's vision; A learning community with an international standard of excellence.

As an International Baccalaureate World school, that is a school who offers all three IB programmes; Primary Years Programme (K-Year 5), Middle Years Programme (Year 6-8) and Diploma Programme (Year 11-12), we are required to be evaluated against a set of rigorous international standards and practices.

As part of this process, the school engages in a self-study as a key element in the school's continual improvement. This work was completed across the College in 2017.

During May this year, the College will be visited by a set of International Baccalaureate Organisation evaluators. The purpose of this visit to is to ensure that we meet the International Standards set by the IBO.

We look forward to welcoming the IBO to our College to ensure we keep measuring ourselves on the global stage.

If there is anything we can do to improve your sons experience in 2018, please do not hesitate to contact the College.

Director of Teaching and Learning
