IB Middle Years Programme
The Secondary School is located close to London’s Hyde Park and has excellent transport links being only a few minutes walk from both Paddington and Edgware Road stations.
From the ages of 11-16 years, ICS students follow the IB Middle Years Programme. This is an academically challenging curriculum framework, with 8 discreet academic areas, that encourages students to embrace and understand connections between the subject content and the real world, while developing critical and reflective thinking skills. The programme is designed to prepare students for pre-University courses such as IB Diploma, Advanced Placement and A-Levels.
For our older students we offer the highly regarded IB Diploma programme, that is an ideal match for our international student community many of whom wish to study at University in the UK.
Central to our school philosophy is being proactive in building a sense of ‘community’ by fostering positive attitudes that promote a safe learning environment. Students participate in training workshops which help them develop a greater understanding of diversity and equality issues and provides them with the tools to dispel and challenge myths and stereotypes. Moreover, students are also empowered to lead and enact change supported by the appropriate bodies and forums within the school, such as the Student Council.
This holistic approach ensures the delivery of a broader curriculum with the student’s academic, social, emotional and psychological well-being at the centre.
