Southbank International School offers all three International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes (Primary Years, Middle Years and Diploma). For more than 30 years, we have stood at the forefront of providing internationally relevant, world class education.


Southbank is a school whose quality and identity rest on its commitment to the International Baccalaureate and promotion of internationalism.

  • Over 70 nationalities on our roll, we live and breathe the spirit of internationalism
  • We help students to develop as independent, confident, curious and lifelong learners who fulfil their academic potential and take the natural step into the world’s best universities.
  • We teach the International Baccalaureate curriculum (Early Childhood, Primary Years, Middle Years and Diploma); which is held in high regard by universities both in the UK and internationally both for its rigour and the breadth of knowledge.


International Baccalaureate Curriculum

The IB offers a continuum of education, consisting of three programmes for students aged 3 to 19. By offering the Primary Years Programme, the Middle Years Programme and the Diploma Programme, as well as the many activities outside the school and using London as a classroom, Southbank enhances and enriches each student’s education and truly is a school without walls.

Entry into Top UK & International Universities

The IB is held in high regard by universities in the UK and internationally both for its rigour and the breadth of knowledge that students gain as a result of their studies. Southbank’s excellent IB Diploma results have ensured that our students have secured places at the world’s most prestigious universities.

Re-locating to London, England

Southbank does all that it can to facilitate the arrival and departure of students and their families to London and the Southbank community.

Our PTAs will help you settle in straight away, providing ‘insider information’ about the best places to shop, eat and visit; information about doctors, dentists, chemists, places of worship, expat organisations as well as essential recommendations for goods and services.

Outstanding Achievements

We are extremely proud of our excellent IB results. Assessing our applicants’ academic performance and potential without using entrance exams has yielded IB scores that challenge those of the UK’s top selective independent and Grammar schools.
