Years 12 and 13 

Le Régent College is proud to be an IB World School.

IB Diploma Programme

In Years 12 and 13, students follow the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme, which develops inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

The IB Diploma is a holistic educational programme recognised by all major universities and employers throughout the world. It encourages students to develop skills and knowledge as learners, enabling them to be prepared for life and work in the 21st Century. It is a highly regarded post-16 educational programme that develops academic rigour. The IB Learner Profile is central to the Programme.

 

IB Learner Profile

By educating students we believe that we can create a better world. The IB learner profile attributes express this in action. At Le Régent we aim to develop and educate young, internationally minded people through life experiences that allow them to develop as inquirers, to be knowledgeable, open-minded thinkers and communicators, who are also caring, principled, balanced and reflective risk-takers.

 

IB Diploma Programme Model

The IB Diploma curriculum is made up of the Diploma Programme Core and six subject groups. Students choose three subjects at Standard Level (SL) and three subjects at Higher Level (HL), one from each subject group. Each subject (at HL and SL) is worth a maximum of 7 points, and the Core is worth a further 3 points, making a total of 45 points. To pass the Diploma, students must gain at least 24 points.

The six subject group categories are:

Group 1 - Studies in Language & Literature

Group 2 - Language Acquisition

Group 3 - Individuals & Societies

Group 4 - Sciences

Group 5 - Mathematics

Group 6 - The Arts

 

The Core

The Core of the IB Diploma Programme aims to broaden every students’ educational experience and challenges them to apply their knowledge and skills to a variety of different situations.

The IB Diploma Programme requires all students to successfully complete three elements:

Theory of Knowledge (ToK), in which students reflect on the nature of knowledge and on how we know what we claim to know.

Extended Essay (EE), which gives students the chance to research a specialist topic and complete a 4,000 word essay, which is an independent, self-directed piece of research, finishing with a viva.

Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS) enables students to get involved in a diverse range of activities, as well as completing an individual CAS project.

 

International Mindedness

At Le Régent we think and work internationally, both globally and locally. We welcome a variety of cultures, languages and experiences into the Le Régent community. We acknowledge cultural diversity in the world we live in and embrace the IB mission alongside our own educational philosophy, based on Courtesy, Compassion Creativity and Courage.

 

University Counselling

We are a designated UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admission Service) centre and we offer an intensive SAT (Standardized Admissions Tests) course for all students in Year 11.

At Le Régent College we have a dedicated University Counsellor who works closely with students and their tutor to enable them to make informed academic choices in the Senior School. The students and parents/guardians have access to a research tool called ‘Unifrog’, which is an easy way for students to choose the best Universities and Apprenticeships for them, and enables tutors to track their progress.
