Island School is engaged in a process of curriculum reform, that has gradually moved away from reliance on a wholly UK model. 90% of our graduating students take, and succeed well at the IB Diploma, while the rest take BTEC courses or a combination of the two. Our intake at year 7 have predominantly followed the IB PYP, and we are changing our curriculum for students aged 11 to 16 to reflect this. This means the introduction of new courses that are trans-disciplinary and are not constrained by external syllabi. New staff members at Island School will be expected to join and contribute to the excitement around these changes and help to write and teach the large number of new courses we are putting in place. The school believes that the excitement of teachers teaching their passion leads to excitement and passion in learning. Prospective new teachers are referred to the following website for more detailed descriptions on the innovative programmes.
