International Baccalaureate (IB)

The International Baccalaureate (IB) at top Boarding schools and colleges

The IB is a two-year programme leading to the IB Diploma, which is recognised and accepted by universities in the UK and worldwide. It is available in some 40 schools and colleges in the UK, both state and independent, and in some 930 schools and colleges in 105 countries.

The IB can be an attractive alternative to A levels for academically able students who seek a broader and more challenging programme of study. It embraces languages, mathematics, arts and sciences and creative subjects.
