International Baccalaureate

We are proud to be the only school in the local area to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) alongside A Levels. The IBDP creates a pathway for our students where their individuality can really shine through, allowing them to pursue their passions with tailored guidance and support given throughout their studies.

Why study IB at Royal High School?

What our students say...

Hear from current RHSB Sixth Form students Billie and Jess in the video below as they discuss their experience of studying the IB Diploma Programme:

It was a tough choice between IB or A levels for me, but in the end I was swayed by the built-in opportunities for physical activity, critical thinking and independence which I saw offered in the IB diploma programme. The IB does a very good job of pushing students and encouraging good habits in time management, efficiency and independent research.”
Marigold Whitaker, RHS Alumna (2021) who achieved a top score of 45/45
