International Creative Baccalaureate

Website ICB

The ICB nurtures curiosity and supports students to develop a lifelong love for learning. Our aim is to ensure that they leave school as independent, reflective learners and confident and responsible citizens.

 

Every Friday, we turn our learning Inside Out! We address our school priorities: spoken language, reasoning and questioning through Inside Out Friday learning, where all classes consolidate key English and maths skills from across the week, in an engaging way. For example, through a morning, in role, as WW2 evacuees or baking bread as if it were 1666 in London.

This approach enables us to deliver the National Curriculum through a wide range of integrated experiences.

 

Students understand what they are learning and why. There is greater depth to their learning and students learn how to discuss, debate, reflect and ask effective questions. Contexts for learning are meaningful and real, and there are many opportunities for enterprise and collaborative working.

Our Curriculum is inclusive, rich in opportunities and diverse in the concepts covered.

Each half term we work towards a shared experience with our Families and Community to give learning a real purpose.

 

We have our very own Forest in the City, and this allows us to take our learning outside, to engage with nature and learn through practical application, as well as having lots of fun!
