History International Baccalaureate Group 3 subject at Westminster Academy
The appeal of the IB Diploma is based on the philosophy of the programme; foreign languages, international-mindedness and service learning are combined with a sustained focus on thinking skills, academic writing and subject specific rigour. It is a challenging programme, but each year we see our IB Diploma graduates leave WA as mature, resilient, knowledgeable, principled and capable individuals, well prepared for the challenges of studying at university.
Students study six subjects (one from each of the disciplines below) to achieve a well-balanced curriculum. Three subjects are taken at higher level (HL) and the other three at standard level (SL). Higher Level subjects include a wider range of modules to allow students to study the course in more detail and develop more specialised knowledge.
