Breadth & depth of education
A broad range of subjects are offered at Westbourne, alongside a wealth of extra and super curricular opportunities carefully designed to prepare students for myriad paths that lay ahead.
As part of the IB Diploma, students study six subjects choices, one from each group, our academic team work closely with students to ensure choices are appropriate for future university options. As part of the IBDP, three subjects are studied in depth at Higher Level (HL), three at Standard Level (SL).

Higher Level: choose subjects from those you enjoy the most and support your career aspirations, these are the three subjects you will study in depth.
Westbourne’s IB Co-ordinators will support you with this choice to ensure you make the correct selection for university courses with specific subject criteria.
Standard Level: these subjects choices help create a balanced programme of study and support the breadth of the programme.
