A holistic approach to learning
The smaller, boutique environment provides a personalised student experience, encouraging each student to reach their full potential, feel safe and supported. The college takes a whole-of-student-development approach to teaching and learning; the students will simultaneously be challenged, engaged, supported and nurtured. Simply put, the students will be heard. Students are welcome on campus anytime between 8am and 6pm, but classes will only begin at 9.30am, because IES College understands that a later start is what teenage bodies and brains need to flourish.
What is the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme?
The IB Diploma Programme curriculum is made up of three core elements and six subject groups. The core elements, Theory of Knowledge, Extended Essay, and Creativity, Activity, Service, are at the heart of the IB and aim to expand students’ educational experiences and challenge them to acquire and apply their knowledge and skills in diverse ways. The IB Diploma Programme curriculum holistically develops the whole student – balancing academic subjects with student-led personal development through the CAS programme of creativity, activity and service and an individual research project which prepares students for university-level study, all part of strengthening the students’ skills as responsible, independent learners.
