We would like to welcome our new students and newly joined staff members. We are looking forward to beginning our most exciting academic year yet, in terms of IB programme development. As you may know, all three of our IB programmes are undergoing evaluation this October and have made significant improvements based on feedback from our learning community and actions planned throughout the self-study process. Because of this, we have been able to build more rigorous academic programmes, while simultaneously enhancing our holistic approaches to teaching and learning, and creating deeper connections within our learning community.
