International Qualification!

A truly International Qualification

fit for the 21st Century

IB students came into school on Tuesday 5th July to collect their exam results. Director of Sixth Form Mrs Bartlett, and some of the group celebrate the results.

 

Twenty-two of the twenty-six International Baccalaureate Career Pathway Students (IBCP) collected their results on Tuesday 6th July. This was our school’s first cohort to study the International qualification, which they began in September 2019.

The course involves studying the IB core made up of language development (our students studied Turkish), Personal and Professional skills, a Reflective Project      (where students write an essay with a moral or ethical  dimension) and Service learning. Students study two IB Diploma subjects and one BTEC subject. These subjects and the Reflective Project attract UCAS points which enable students to gain a place at university.

We have noticed a positive change in our students studying the IBCP. Not only does it develop their knowledge and skills in the subjects they are studying, but also their confidence, teamwork and soft skills relevant to higher education or employment. Our students responded positively to the demands of the course and should be proud of their achievements.

Students will not find out in August after they receive their BTEC results, whether or not they have secured their first-choice university place.
