Senior Learning Programmes
All courses within the Senior curriculum ultimately lead to either the National or the International Baccalaureate. While the Liceo Programme is in itself a very exacting course of studies, attending to our international perspective the School also offers the International Baccalaureate, having the honour of being one of the original founding schools in the 1970s to do so. In preparation for the IB Programme, The British Schools also follows the IGCSE programmes produced by The Cambridge Universities Syndicate. Together, our graduates receive the best Uruguayan education possible with the clear option to study abroad if desired. While it is mandatory for all students to follow the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, it is not however a general requirement for foreign students to follow the National Baccalaureate. These core requirements give the School an opportunity to develop a more interesting and challenging curriculum in addition to those elements already included within the traditional, compulsory, programme.
The IGCSE and IB Diploma results are carefully analysed to look for internal trends and to compare our own standing with International Benchmarks, the results of which are presented to the Board as a formal Report. This type of analysis assists in identifying individual student learning needs which are then discussed with the Pastoral Team who subsequently plan and implement appropriate strategies.
