The Middle Years Academic Programme

MYP is an academic programme set by the International Baccalaureate organisation for 11 to 16 year olds. It aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. The programme is challenging, but caters for all abilities. A student’s final grade is based on what they actually know and are able to do.

 

MYP consists of eight subject groups covering the sciences, the humanities, arts and languages, citizenship modules and PE. In the last two years (M4 and M5), students have more choice in the subjects they study, allowing them to follow their personal learning goals and shape their future educational plans. The small class sizes favour a personalised approach to teaching, based on inquiry and investigative learning.

 

While their learning is structured and guided according to individual needs, the students are encouraged to take increasing responsibility for their own learning as they move up the school. All students also study French from beginner level to fluent and first-language speakers.
