Gen­eral Inform­a­tion

In order to sit the IB Dip­loma exam­in­a­tion at 18, pupils must first com­plete the two-year IB Dip­loma Pro­gramme (IBDP), and ideally our two-year pre-IB Pro­gramme prior to that.

Evid­ence of strong aca­demic achieve­ment in addi­tion to flu­ency in Eng­lish are key require­ments for a pupil wish­ing to join the pre-IB Years or the IBDP itself.

Places in the IB Dip­loma Pro­gramme at KIS are alloc­ated accord­ing to avail­ab­il­ity and aca­demic record.
