We are proud to be able to offer the internationally acclaimed IBCP. The IBCP is recognised by universities across the world and is widely seen as a symbol of academic integrity. It has the academic rigour linked to the IB with the opportunity to study a vocational qualification.

The IBCP is an innovative education pathway that offers a flexible blend of academic and career-related studies. The IBCP aims to develop applicable, transferable lifelong skills that prepare students for higher education, higher level apprenticeships or employment. It includes a minimum of two IB diploma programme subjects and a nationally recognised career-related qualification. The full IBCP gives students the opportunity to study the unique core programme.

This is broken down into 4 areas including:

• Service and language learning,

• PPS which stands for Personal and Professional skills and the

• The reflective project.

Students get the opportunity to carry out charity work, study a language/culture, develop and reflect on their skills and carry out an independent project on an ethical dilemma of their choice. The core helps students gain the experience and skills necessary for success in careers or degree courses and allows students to stand out from other applicants when applying for jobs or universities.

Universities that have accepted IBCP students in recent years include:

  • University of Greenwich
  • Canterbury Christ Church University
  • University of Kent
  • Birmingham City University
  • Bournemouth University
