The IB Diploma Programme is quite simply the best post-16 educational programme available today. It is increasingly considered the gold standard by universities all over the world, and St. Catherine's graduates regularly gain access to the very top establishments in the UK, the US and elsewhere including Oxford, Cambridge, LSE, UPenn, University of Chicago and McGill. We are proud of our consistent annual average of 35 points or above and that 80% of our students consistently gain acceptance at their first choice of university, as well as the fact that over 95% of our students take the full diploma. But above all we are proud that our students emerge from their IB studies as well-rounded young people with strong critical thinking skills and an understanding of the world around them.
We actively cultivate in our students the qualities set out in the IB Learner Profile, helping them develop into independent thinkers and internationally-minded, caring and principled young men and women.
