Southbank International School is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School for 2-18 year olds with campuses in Hampstead, Kensington and Westminster in Central London. We are the first school in the UK authorised to offer all three International Baccalaureate programmes. For over 40 years, Southbank has been at the forefront of providing internationally relevant, world class education.
Middle Years Programme (11-16 years old)
Based at our Westminster campus on Portland Place, the Middle Years Programme shares the PYP's commitment to learning through inquiry and continues to develop attributes of the IB learner profile. The MYP emphasises intellectual challenge, encouraging students to make connections between their studies in traditional subjects and the real world. At Southbank, we foster the development of skills for communication, intercultural understanding and global engagement - essential qualities for young people who are becoming global leaders.
Southbank Westminster is conveniently located near Regent's Park with good transportation links nearby. Facilities at Westminster include five science labs, a Design lab with desktop Macs to complement the 1:1 programme. Our Design labs include laser cutters, 3D printers, amongst other industry-level equipment. A hall/theatre, cafeteria, art and music rooms, and two libraries served by networked computers.
Diploma Programme (16-18 years old)
Based at Cleveland Street and Conway Street, the Diploma Programme encourages students to ask challenging questions, develop a strong sense of their own identity and culture, and develop the ability to communicate with and understand people from other countries and cultures. It prepares students for the next stage in their education and the qualification is widely-recognised by the world's leading universities.
Our 2023 IBDP students scored an average of 34.8 (world average 30.2). We achieved a 97% pass rate, with 21% of our students scoring 40 or more and 25% students achieved a bilingual IB Diploma.
These outstanding results allowed the vast majority of students to gain admission to top universities in the UK, North America and other parts of the world.
Facilities at Conway Street include a science lab, library resource centre, art studio and language suite. Facilities at Cleveland St include a brand new art room, a large common room and a design technology lab.
Southbank also has dedicated university counsellors specialising in North American universities, the UK and the rest of the world. All counsellors are available for individual appointments and events are organised to inform parents about university planning.
