Our curriculum

Southbank is proud to have been the first school in the UK to offer all three International Baccalaureate academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme, the Middle Years Programme and the Diploma Programme.

We truly believe each of these programmes features a curriculum that’s excellent at developing independent, confident, curious and lifelong learners who fulfil their academic potential and want to make a positive difference to the world.
