IES College’s fully refurbished inner city, vertical campus located at 495 Boundary St, Spring Hill, is a welcoming learning environment for students. Globally inspired, light-filled spaces for collaboration and socialising, quiet places for concentration and deep thinking, flexible Wi-Fi classrooms that can be transformed for purpose, a research learning centre at the hub of the school, STEM and art studios, performing arts space and more.
The smaller boutique environment provides a personalised student experience, encouraging each student to reach their full potential, feel safe and supported. Bigger isn’t always better. The college takes a whole-of-student-development approach to teaching and learning; the students will simultaneously be challenged, engaged, supported and nurtured. Simply put, the students will be heard. Students are welcome on campus anytime between 8AM and 6PM, but classes will only begin at 9.30AM, because IES College understands that a later start is what teenage bodies and brains need to flourish.
The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end the organisation works with schools, governments and international organisations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
The IB Diploma Programme curriculum holistically develops the whole student – balancing academic subjects with student led personal development through the CAS programme of creativity, activity and service and an individual research project which prepares students for university level study, all part of strengthening the students’ skills as responsible, independent learners.
IES College doesn’t just talk about diversity and inclusion; it lives, breathes it and lead by example. IES College teachers and professional staff are multilingual and multicultural, and have travelled the world. They understand different cultures, and have a real grasp of what it means to be a world citizen. Students have access to virtual global classrooms to learn and collaborate with students from around the world. Being purposefully global in outlook infuses every aspect of the learning at IES College. Students will learn to think critically and creatively, navigate uncertainties and take measured risks as they embrace diversity with a global mindset. These concepts are at the very core of the IB Diploma Programme, and will help students develop a broader life view, preparing them for success.
