International Baccalaureate

For students in years 12-13, the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme is a challenging and balanced programme of education, with final examinations that prepare students for success at university and life beyond. The programme is taught over two years and has gained recognition and respect from the world’s leading universities.


International Study Centre

Our International Study Centre (ISC) acts as a bridge between the student's home education system and British independent education; providing a safe environment in which international students can adapt to boarding school life and adjust to the demands of education in England.

We offer our students access to a full curriculum at the level most appropriate to their linguistic ability. Students study either on an English programme on an IGCSE programme, in small groups, as they prepare for entry into our mainstream classes.

ISC students are fully integrated into the life of the school, living in boarding houses with children from the UK and overseas, taking part in all aspect of school life. The ISC may be distinct but it is fully integrated.
