The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP) is for students aged 11-16.
The Middle Years Programme (MYP) is a challenging framework that encourages students to make practical connections between their studies and the real world.
The MYP helps students develop both subject-specific and interdisciplinary understanding. The MYP curriculum framework includes:
- Approaches to learning, helping students learn how to learn by developing skills for research, critical and creative thinking, communication, collaboration and self-management.
- Key and related concepts, helping students explore big ideas that matter
- Global contexts, helping students understand the relevance and importance of their study for understanding their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet.
The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP) organizes teaching and learning through eight subject groups:
- Language and literature (first language study)
- Learning acquisition (second language study)
- Individuals and societies (aspects of history, geography, psychology and business)
- Sciences (physics, chemistry and biology)
- Arts (Visual Arts, Drama, Music)
- Physical and health education
The MYP culminates in an independent learning project. Students complete a significant piece of work over an extended period of time, encouraging them to consolidate their learning and reflect on the outcomes of their work.
* Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its three academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP) or the Diploma Programme (and in addition the IB Career-related Certificate). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted. For further information about the IB and its programmes visit IB website.
At BEPS Secondary, our students will continue to develop their Personal Attributes (The International Baccalaureate® (IB) learner profile) to become successful young adults.
They will deepen their understanding and will become:
At BEPS Secondary, students are supported by their mentors. They decide how they spend their flexible learning time, planning and setting targets and deadlines for the day and the week ahead. They learn to manage their time realistically. In the lower secondary years, they need a significant amount of guidance with this, but as they move into the upper secondary, our students will be able to self-manage their learning time independently.
Students design and carry out personal projects by setting goals and developing research plans. They learn to take their interests beyond a superficial level and dig deeper into something that really inspires or excites them. They also assess their work and that of others. Giving and receiving feedback helps them to become more competent and confident learners.
