Welcome to the UK specific International Baccalaureate (IB) website for teachers, schools, parents, students and universities. The IB community is motivated by a mission to create a better world through education. Our programmes aim to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. IB programmes challenge students to excel not only in their studies but also in their personal growth.

We support schools and teachers to provide a world class education, offering professional development that improves pedagogy and leadership. This website is dedicated to act as a resource for potential and current IB World Schools, their teachers, students and their parents and also universities in the UK when looking at the IB.


For students aged three to 19 years, the IB continuum of programmes encourages both personal and academic achievement, challenging students to excel in their studies and personal development.
