Wotton House International School has been granted IB World School status. One of only 15 IB World Schools in the UK, these are schools that share a common philosophy and a commitment to delivering a high quality, challenging, international education that IVE UK believes is so important for our students.
The school has also been granted authorisation to offer the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) - see here for more information.
Only schools authorised by the International Baccalaureate (IB) organisation can offer any of its three academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), or the Diploma Programme (and in addition the IB Career-related Certificate).
The MYP is a highly respected, internationally recognised education programme for children from ages 11-16. It leads naturally to the International Baccalaureate Diploma and Career Programmes for university applications around the world. It is also excellent preparation for A-Level study.
The International Baccalaureate Organisation ensures that the curriculum offered by MYP schools is varied and stimulating, with a rich breadth and depth.
MYP does the following:
promotes integrated conceptual understanding as well as a deep subject knowledge
teaches the research skills necessary for future study
its interdisciplinary approach means students acquire a genuine understanding of the links between subjects
students learn to work independently in preparation for university
it is designed to help children gain a sense of their place in the world and the local community
