IB Learner Spotlight
Hear from students who embody the qualities of the IB Learner and find out about their experience at school.
“I’d say the best thing about the IB is the way that it pushes you to do more. Although I do have a passion for history, I don’t think I would have made space for it outside of school without the IB. It really pushes you to find new hobbies and have fun with your passions in an academic way.
What I appreciate most about our school is the freedom we have to explore our own interests. Even though I don’t study history, my Extended Essay focused on the topic ‘To what extent did the Sierra Leone relocation scheme fail due to ignorance?’. I chose this essay to delve into a subject outside my studies. The IB provides this opportunity, allowing us to choose intriguing topics beyond our main disciplines.
I hope to explore my own interests outside of my working life, in a similar way that I have been able to during my time at school.”
