King William’s College is an International Baccalaureate school. Its Principal, Mr Joss Buchanan explains the benefits of an IB school:
In 2002 King William’s College began teaching the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma for the first time. Since then, more than 900 students have studied the Diploma with us and we have become one of the largest and most successful IB schools in Britain. We believe that it is an excellent preparation for both university and life beyond.
What is the IB Diploma?
The IB Diploma Programme combines both breadth and depth of study. It places a strong emphasis on critical thinking skills and promotes an international mindset. The programme is taught over two years and is recognised by all UK and most leading universities around the world.
