2021 January Diploma Bulletin

IB Diploma Students and teachers have gracefully embraced virtual learning since we reopened school on the 12th of January and have since then continued to effectively engage in all aspects of academic programme remotely.

Year 13 students are currently busy completing their coursework elements with the support of their teachers and are simultaneously busy preparing for their final exams that are scheduled to being in the last week of April. The mock modern languages exams and diagnostic mock exams will begin in the second week of February and we are hoping that school will resume face to face. In the absence of face to face classes these assessments will be held remotely.

Over the past few months Year 13 students have also been busy sending their applications to various universities in the UK, US, Canada, Europe and Asia. We are pleased to say that we have started receiving offers and below are some of universities we have offers from. We are waiting to hear from many more. 

UK: Durham, Manchester, Warwick, York, Leeds, Nottingham, Exeter

US: Purdue, Massachusetts Amherst, Embry Riddle Aeronautical University

Europe: Hult and Wageningen

Canada: University of Toronto, Mississauga

Developing the five elements of Approaches To Learning skills namely Communication, Thinking, Social, Self-management and Research skills are very important to students and as an IB school we strive to develop these skills in our students.  ATL’s are intrinsically linked to the IB learner profile to enhance students learning and assist student preparation for life after high school. These skills can be taught, learned and improved during their time at school. On Wednesday 20th April during pastoral lesson our Year 12 students engaged in a group activity to identify the difficult aspects of the five ATL skills and grouped together strategies that can be used to develop and overcome them. Through our various learning engagements we continue to support the development of these ATL skills and Learner Profiles Attributes in our students so they are better prepared for university life.
