An Inspired School

King's College Soto is an IB World School and offers the IB Diploma Programme. Since its conception in 1968, this highly reputed course of study has promoted international-mindedness as well as intellectual rigour and academic flexibility.

The Diploma Programme is designed to meet the educational requirements of pupils normally aged between 16 and 19 years.The IB Diploma Programme aims to develop critical and compassionate thinkers who, as learners in the 21st century are prepared for success at university and life beyond. In order to facilitate lifelong learning a challenging and balanced two-year curriculum is offered.

The programme offers breadth of study through the range of subjects studied, the unifying nature of the Theory of Knowledge programme and the holistic nature of the Creativity, Action and Service programme. Depth of study is provided through the study of three subjects at the Higher Level and the Extended Essay.

Successful completion of the IB Diploma has proved to be a valuable asset when applying to universities in the UK and worldwide. The critical thinking required for the Diploma Course gives students a significant advantage at university. As an alternative to the full Diploma Programme some students may enrol in individual Diploma courses for the purpose of acquiring IB Diploma Certificates. Both the IB Diploma and certificates are recognised as entry qualifications into university with leading universities specifically welcoming applications from IB Diploma pupils.

We would be delighted to meet you and show you around. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
