THE IB FROM SOUTHBANK INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL

The International Baccalaureate at the Southbank International School in London is more than an education. It offers students a grounding for the increasingly complex and demanding world we live in. 

Through a commitment to academic excellence and a uniquely liberal ethos, the IB develops students with an inner belief in themselves, an openness to the outside world and a desire to give back to communities on a local, national and global level.
