This week, Year 11 and Pre-IB pupils from our Senior School enjoyed an IB Taster Day to experience a day in the life of Westbourne IB Sixth Form students.
We believe that the IB Diploma Programme provides students with a clear advantage over their A Level peers in both university applications and future careers. Awarded IB Diploma School of the Year 2019, IB Sixth Form at Westbourne is an immersive experience in academic excellence.
The IB aims to support students to develop a wide range of skills and abilities to take on the challenges they will face in the future. IB students study a programme designed to develop breadth through the study of six key areas including English, Mathematics, a Science, a Humanities subject, a Language and a Creative Arts subject.
As well as developing a broad range of skills, the programme enables students to capitalise on their strengths, studying three subjects to Higher Level, with three to Standard Level, creating opportunities to develop a second language, explore creative subjects and expand humanities and scientific knowledge.
