International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme
What is the MYP curriculum?
IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) is a 3 year programme which encourages students to make connections, be critical and independent, while also developing a love of learning. Students who complete MYP are well-prepared to undertake the challenges of the GCSE and the IB Diploma or Career-related programmes.
As an IB World School we are well placed to offer the MYP from years 7 – 9. We are currently an MYP candidate school. We have been running our outstanding IB Diploma Programme (DP) at Impington International College (IIC) for 30 years and are highly experienced IB educators.
The MYP offers a pedagogical approach to education rooted in the IB mission statement and the IB Learner Profile. It emphasises international-mindedness, interdisciplinary learning and service to others. The curriculum offers opportunities for students to become independent and active learners by:
- contextualising learning within global contexts.
- encouraging reflection and awareness of metacognition through Approaches to Learning (ATL).
- promoting opportunities for service through its community project and service learning elements.
