bsb-shunyi-ib-newsThe British School of Beijing, Shunyi will offer no less than 18 subjects to students undertaking its new IB Diploma programme beginning August 2014.

It is a huge choice for students and gives more options per class space than any other IB Diploma school in Beijing, with the added benefit of more one-on-one contact time with teachers.

School Principal Andy Puttock, said BSB’s new IB Diploma programme was about giving students enough scope to pursue their careers and dreams.

“The IB is the natural next step as a school that believes in creating great learning through true academic rigour. We are preparing our students for a world beyond school and we want to give them choices so they can discover for themselves where their true strengths lie,” Puttock said.

The IB Diploma is the leading international qualification for high school graduates and is widely recognized as the best preparation for the demands of university.

BSB will offer 18 subjects across the areas of languages, humanities, science, maths and the arts.

Students select six subjects to study over the two-year programme and must also complete the Theory of Knowledge, Extended Essay and Creativity, Service, Action (CAS) requirements.

Carol Pratt, BSB’s IB Diploma Leader, has worked in two other IB World Schools, but said BSB’s wide subject offering coupled with preparation from the English National Curriculum was the best grounding she has seen for academic success in the IB Diploma programme.

“We are really excited about what we are offering our students,” Pratt said. “They will of course need to work hard and be dedicated to their study, but we are ready to guide them through.

“I think the future looks very bright indeed for our Graduate students at BSB.”
