Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.

The Middle Years Programme is a highly respected, internationally recognised education programme for children from ages 11-16. The Middle Years Programme 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 key points:

  • Promotes integrated conceptual understanding as well as a deep subject knowledge
  • Teaches the research skills necessary for future study
  • Interdisciplinary approach means students acquire a genuine understanding of the links between subjects
  • Students learn to work independently in preparation for university
  • Designed to help children gain a sense of their place in the world and the local community

An international curriculum that promotes the joy of learning
