Available at both higher and standard levels, the language B courses are designed for students with some previous experience of learning the target language.

      The focus of these courses is on language acquisition and the development of skills considerably beyond those expected of an ab initio candidate, up to a fairly sophisticated degree at higher level.

      Language B courses give students the opportunity to reach a high degree of competence in a language and explore the culture(s) using the language. The range of purposes and situations for which and in which the language is used extends well beyond those at ab initio, to conceptual understandings related to   Identities, experiences,  Human Ingenuity, social organization and sharing the planet. The types of language needed for these purposes and situations are more refined.


This is the Grade 11 Language and Literature (SL) Learning Site

Activities and resources for Grade 11 English Literature 

ESS is a complex course, requiring a diverse set of skills from its students. It is firmly grounded in both a scientific exploration of environmental systems in their structure and function and in the exploration of cultural, economic, ethical, political, and social interactions of societies with the environment. As a result of studying this course, students will become equipped with the ability to recognize and evaluate the impact of our complex system of societies on the natural world. The interdisciplinary nature of the course requires a broad skill set from students and includes the ability to perform research and investigations and to participate in philosophical discussion. The course requires a systems approach to environmental understanding and problem solving, and promotes holistic thinking about environmental issues. It is recognized that to understand the environmental issues of the 21st century and suggest suitable management solutions, both the human and environmental aspects must be understood. Students should be encouraged to develop solutions from a personal to a community and to a global scale.

Through the exploration of cause and effect, the course investigates how values interact with choices and actions, resulting in a range of environmental impacts. Students develop an understanding that the connections between environmental systems and societies are diverse, varied and dynamic. The complexity of these interactions challenges those working towards understanding the actions required for effective guardianship of the planet and sustainable and equitable use of shared resources.


Psychology is the rigorous and systematic study of mental processes and behaviour. It is a complex subject which draws on concepts, methods and understandings from a number of different disciplines. There is no single approach that would describe or explain mental processes and behaviour on its own as human beings are complex, with highly developed frontal lobes, cognitive abilities, involved social structures and cultures. 

During Year 1 students will focus on the understanding of human behaviour from a biological and cognitive approaches, and will dedicate class time to replicate a psychological experiment as part of their Internal Assessment. HL students will study qualitative research methods and one extension topic from each of the core units. 

Activities aimed at developing literary analysis of both the works of literature studied in the course and other literary excerpts.


Business management studies business functions, management processes and decision-making in contemporary contexts of strategic uncertainty. It examines how business decisions are influenced by internal and external factors to an organization, and how these decisions impact upon its stakeholders, both internally and externally.
Business management also explores how individuals and groups interact
within an organization, how they may be successfully managed and how they can ethically optimize the use of resources in a world with increasing scarcity and concern for sustainability. 
Emphasis is placed on strategic decision-making and the operational business functions of human resource management, finance and accounts, marketing and operations management.

This course is available at standard level (SL) only. It caters for students with varied backgrounds and
abilities. More specifically, it is designed to build confidence and encourage an appreciation of mathematics in students who do not anticipate a need for mathematics in their future studies. Students taking this course need to be already equipped with fundamental skills and a rudimentary knowledge of basic processes.
The course concentrates on mathematics that can be applied to contexts related as far as possible to other subjects being studied, to common real-world occurrences and to topics that relate to home, work and leisure situations. The course includes project work, a feature unique within this group of courses: students must produce a project, a piece of written work based on personal research, guided and supervised by the teacher. The project provides an opportunity for students to carry out a mathematical investigation in the context of another course being studied, a hobby or interest of their choice using skills learned before and during the course. This process allows students to ask their own questions about mathematics and to take responsibility for a part of their own course of studies in mathematics.

In this course students will study how the different systems in our body work and how those are connected to physical activities.

Psychology is the rigorous and systematic study of mental processes and behaviour. It is a complex subject which draws on concepts, methods and understandings from a number of different disciplines. There is no single approach that would describe or explain mental processes and behaviour on its own as human beings are complex, with highly developed frontal lobes, cognitive abilities, involved social structures and cultures. The study of behaviour and mental processes requires a multidisciplinary approach and the use of a variety of research techniques whilst recognising that behaviour is not a static phenomenon, it is adaptive, and as the world, societies and challenges facing societies change, so does behaviour.

During Year 2, students will focus on the sociocultural approach to have a holistic understanding of human behaviour. The study of Human Relationships will be another unit in which they can integrate all core units. HL students will study Abnormal Behaviour, emphasising on one disorder of their choice.
