Upon completion of the MYP, our students start their studies for the IB and High School Diploma Programmes.

Our team is multilingual and multinational and forms a unique community which is supportive, friendly, empathetic, hard-working, flexible and resilient. Everyone in the team has a role to play in the development of our students, and we encourage all our staff to think creatively and be that special person who helps bring out the best in every student.
