How will my child be prepared for universities?

Ensuring that our students are equipped for future success is central to our school life. Our College Counselling Team will guide and support our students as they prepare for life beyond our school.

In their time in the IB, students develop: time management skills and a strong sense of self-motivation; a keen interest in civic engagement; notable academic abilities; strong research and writing skills; critical thinking abilities and an international outlook. Research suggests, for example, that IB students are more likely than their peers to complete their undergraduate degrees and pursue graduate work and that they are more likely to be engaged in various aspects of university life. According to the research, IB students are strong on: student leadership, activities; working with university faculty on research projects; finding opportunities to study in other countries; tutoring other students; taking part in voluntary & community service and completing internships.
