International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP)
(To be offered)
Grades 11 – 12

During their final two years of senior secondary school, students will study the IB Diploma Programme (IBDP). The IB Diploma Programme is an academically challenging and balanced programme of education that prepares students, aged 16 to 19, for success at university and life beyond. The programme is taught over two years and has gained recognition & respect from the world’s leading universities. Research reveals that universities in the UK and USA have a high regard for IB graduates, and the skills and attitudes developed.

The IBDP curriculum is made up of six subject groups and the DP core, comprising theory of knowledge (TOK), creativity, activity, service (CAS) and the extended essay. Through the DP core, students reflect on the nature of knowledge, complete independent research and undertake a project that often involves community service.

Widely regarded as one of the best pre-university courses in the world, the IBDP aims to develop students with excellent breadth and depth of knowledge. The inquiry-based pedagogy along with heavy focus on application, prepares students to flourish physically, intellectually and emotionally.

The students will have many out-of-classroom activities and experiences, through Learning Enhancement Programme, such as theatre, photography, film review, Indian and western music, robotics, coding and sports like Golf, football, cricket, tennis, basketball & taekwondo, to name a few.

Community service in an integral part of the curriculum. We believe that inculcating human values is essential for building ethically and morally sound individuals. Through a number of programmes under CAS, students are encouraged to understand the challenges faced by the less-privileged which sensitises them about the importance of being compassionate.
