Many of our international dual curriculum schools offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) as an alternative curriculum for your child’s two pre-university years. This is a highly internationally respected curriculum, designed to give students a global outlook and a rigorous education in the broadest range of subjects possible.

  • Established in 1969
  • Strong international focus
  • Very well-respected by international universities
  • Seen as the broadest international curriculum
  • Early introduction to independent research
  • School-driven formative assessments
  • Available at primary, middle and diploma levels

We often blend the schools’ local curriculum with the best elements of an international one. In alternative STEAM students are educated in a leading national curriculum, like the National Curriculum of England or the American Curriculum, then study for an International Baccalaureate (IB) during their two pre-university years. 

A close connection to local culture can be a key part of a student’s development. At our American schools and our British schools we’re very proud to offer local state curriculum in tandem with international curriculum. This approach gives our students the opportunity to feel connected to their home and enjoy a top quality international education.


Choosing your child's curriculum

For our internationally minded students and their families, keeping options open and taking advantage of the best educational systems the world has to offer can be exciting, inspiring and practical.That’s why many of our schools offer a combination of curricula.
