The IB at BGS

Bexley Grammar School has been teaching the IB since 2003 and building on 14 years of experience, became fully IB in 2017 to join an elite group of schools who offer only this gold standard of Sixth Form education.

The  IBDP (International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme) is more than a qualification in a few subjects but it is certainly not elitist; it is a coherent educational vision based upon a clearly defined set of values which BGS shares and which we summarise in our ethos of Intellect, Empathy and Courage. It offers both depth and breadth and encourages students to develop qualities and skills that are captured in the IB Learner Profile.

Our unrivalled success in the London Borough of Bexley in securing the best destinations for our students, from prestigious work-based placements to a whole range of universities, including record Oxbridge and Russell group universities, is in large part due to the IBDP. Most universities now prefer the IB to A levels and employers regularly call for better knowledge and skills in mathematics, English, languages and science - all of which the IB provides.
