High School Introduction

At our high school, students complete their final years of secondary education before leaving for university. This time is crucial, not only in terms of determining which university students will attend, but also as students prepare for the challenges of university and adult life.

At BWYA, with a wholistic approach to learning we believe we are setting our students up to succeed not only academically, but wherever life may take them. As our school mission states – we seek to develop principled, open-minded thinkers who are capable of integrating with diverse international communities and who are empowered to shape their environs for the improvement of quality of life for themselves and other

High School Introduction

As our school mission states – we seek to develop principled, open-minded thinkers who are capable of integrating with diverse international communities and who are empowered to shape their environs for the improvement of quality of life for themselves and others.

IB Diploma Programme

BWYA has offered the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme to local and international students since the school’s inception in 2001.

In our implementation of the Diploma Programme we support our students by actively incorporating different learning and teaching styles into our lessons, inculcating in our students a sense of ownership of their work and responsibility for their actions, and providing different subjects and high school tracks to accommodate their individual interests and needs. 

As we continue to grow as a school and improve our implementation of the Diploma Programme, we celebrate what we as a school community have accomplished so far and look forward to even greater accomplishments in the future.

Core Requirements

These principles for learning are applied to all aspects of school life and guide us in our development and implementation of the IB DP programme.

The Extended Essay

The extended essay is a requirement for students to engage in independent research through an in-depth study of a question relating to one of the subjects they are studying.

Theory of Knowledge

Theory of Knowledge (TOK) is a course designed to encourage each student to reflect on the nature of knowledge by critically examining different ways of knowing (perception, emotion, language and reason) and different kinds of knowledge (scientific, artistic, mathematical and historical).

Creativity, Action, Service

The Creativity, Action, Service (CAS) component requires that students actively learn from experience of doing real tasks beyond the classroom. Students can combine all three components or do activities related to each one of them separately.

Grade 10 Reach a Great Milestone

Grade 10 Reach a Great Milestone “…… And now fast forward a few years, we’re now roughly at themidpoint of our journey, about to finish the MYP or IGCSE programme and enter the DP programme. The last two days I’ve been looking back at all the memories, everything we’ve gone through the past couple of years. And I’d like to use my time today to just toast, and proudly too, the glories and stories and tales we made for ourselves before we move on to make some more in the last two remaining years of our high school.”     —— Student Representative
