In 2013 Villiers began a long but rewarding journey towards becoming an International Baccalaureate (IB) school. Following a detailed feasibility study, the school became an IB Candidate School for the Diploma Programme in 2015.

After IB Consultant and Verification Visits, Villiers was officially authorised to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) and became an IB World School in March 2017.

In September 2018, our first IBDP cohort began and includes students from Germany, Ireland, Poland and Spain. Students attending Villiers can now choose to study either the Irish Leaving Certificate or the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.

Villiers believes in a shared IB Schools philosophy: a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education for all its students.

Students taking the IBDP route in Villiers can now study:

    1. Studies in language and literature (Group 1): Language and Literature A (English); Language A (self-taught)

2. Language acquisition (Group 2): Language B (English); Language B (German); Language ab initio (Japanese)

3. Individuals and societies (Group 3): Business Management; History

    4. Sciences (Group 4): Biology; Chemistry

    5. Mathematics (Group 5): Mathematics SL

    6. The arts (Group 6): Visual Arts or another subject from Groups 1-5

In consultation with the IB Coordinator, alternative Group 1 and Group 2 languages may be available, but this option may incur an additional charge. To further augment the range of subjects available, Villiers has also established links with Pamoja Education (see  http://www.pamojaeducation.com/ for further details and conditions)

IBDP students are also expected to study the core elements of Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS), the Extended Essay (EE) and Theory of Knowledge (TOK).
