Welcome to www.IB-Schools.eu which aims to assist parents who wish to educate their children in the International Baccalaureate at private schools in the UK or Europe.
The International Baccalaureate is an international qualification now offered (in 2015) by 4069 schools in 147 countries worldwide. Of these 1832 are private schools teaching the IBDP in EU / EEA. It is overseen by The International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO) in Switzerland. The UK has 155 IB schools of which 79 are private ( independent ) schools, which offer one or more of the International Baccalaureate programmes.
There are four programmes:
More than 90% of UK IB schools concentrate on the Diploma Programme and only a handful offer the PYP or MYP.
On this site we list all the UK private schools offering the International Baccalaureate. We also list most of the EU IBDP schools in continental Europe plus EEA.
All schools are listed on our geographic search engine, but due to the modest number of schools teaching the IB in some countries including the UK, you may not find one in your preferred location. Please contact us for advice if this is the case.
Each year we publish a comprehensive league table of UK independent schools, based on the average points achieved by IB Diploma candidates. The table can also be found on our other sites www.privateschools.co and www.best-schools.co.uk . We produce two separate tables for schools with large and small cohorts. It has been difficult to collect exam data for EU schools – so we show a selection of results purely for comparability purposes.
You will find a wealth of information about choosing an IB school and selecting the best curriculum in the 6th form in our free eGuides: How to choose an IB school and A Level vs IB vs Pre-U.
This site is operated by Education Advisers Limited, who specialise in providing advice to parents and students on choice of independent schools and colleges. You can find out more about us here.
