The Whitstable School - IB World School19/07/19
The Whitstable School are delighted to announce that we are now an authorised IB World School and will be offering the International Baccalaureate Career Programme (CP) from September 2019. We are excited to add this additional pathway to accompany our established and successful BTEC and A level pathway at Post-16. The CP was specifically developed for students who wish to engage in career-related learning while gaining transferable and lifelong skills in applied knowledge, critical thinking, communication, and cross-cultural engagement.
In an official letter to confirm the result of the International Baccalaureate verification process, The Whitstable School was given the following feedback: ‘We commend your school’s educators, administrators, students and families for their active roles in choosing to offer the CP. The positive results of this choice will become evident in your community as classes of CP students graduate and undertake activities that enhance social, cultural and economic environments locally, nationally and, perhaps, internationally’.
Mrs Gibson, Headteacher, said ‘Becoming an IB World school affirms our school culture of “Learn Locally, Think Globally”. It encourages both personal and academic achievement. It challenges students to excel in their studies and in their personal development.’
IB International Day—18th July 2019
The school celebrated this achievement by having an International Day, where students could take part in different activities such as talking Italian, Olympics and sports events, Day of the Dead mask making, origami, landmark building and an international film. Students really enjoyed the afternoon and there was a real buzz around the school.
There are limited places available at The Whitstable School Sixth Form for September 2019.
