Sixth Form (IB)
Key Stage 5: Sixth Form
International Baccalaureate - Year 12 and 13
Now widely regarded as the leading school leaving qualification and recognised by the best universities across the world, the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) has been in place at St George’s for the past 22 years.
The IB Diploma combines rigorous academic standards with intellectual breadth to develop young people who are literate, numerate, aware of their world socially and scientifically and able to communicate their experiences in at least two languages.
Additional components in research, critical thought and community service complete the education of very well-rounded individuals equipped for life in the 21st century.
St George's pupils achieve IB results well above the world average, but we offer much more than an excellent education. Pupils are expected to immerse themselves fully into the life of the school and that of the local community.
They participate in a plethora of extra-curricular activities, occupy positions of responsibility through the Student Council, Mentoring Programmes and as House Captains.
Throughout the school year, we welcome visits to the school from representatives of world-leading universities. With the guidance of our Careers Counsellor, pupils are equipped with the support that they need in order to apply to the universities or colleges of their choice, and so enter the next phase of their academic careers with the strongest possible foundation.
