Our challenge, as a school and as a community, is to equip our students with the knowledge, aptitude and skills to thrive in the world of 2030 and beyond.
This is essential given that the world is experiencing a remarkable rate of change. Technological innovation and changing patterns of work and communication mean that those children entering education today will need to develop a different set of abilities and attributes to succeed.
Since 2019 we have been implementing the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IB MYP) for our pupils aged 11 to 13.
The IB MYP is a framework of teaching and learning that encourages pupils to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers. It is more than just a set of subjects: it addresses their intellectual, social, emotional and physical well-being, and gives them the opportunities to develop the knowledge, attitudes and skills they need to manage complexity and take responsible action for the future.
The IB MYP brings together everything we believe about education in a way that will give our young people the best opportunity to thrive in the world of 2030 and beyond, whether at university, in the world of work, or in their wider lives.
Our nationally-acclaimed FOSIL framework for inquiry-based learning and our broad and balanced curriculum all fit in with, and are developed by, the IB MYP approach.
Oakham School is an IB World School offering Middle Years and Diploma Programmes. IB World Schools share a common philosophy - a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education - that we believe is important for our students.
