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.

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.

This course is aimed at ISH Grade 12 students who are doing the IBO Physics course at a Higher Level. It covers 2 units of the IBO program for Physics (starting from 2016). Here students can find different resources that will help them in completing the following topics:   Wave phenomena and Quantum Physics. 


This course is aimed at ISH Grade 12 students who are doing the IBO Physics course at a Standard Level. It covers 3 units of the IBO program for Physics (starting from 2016). Here students can find different resources that will help them in completing the following topics:   Thermal physics, Atomic Physics, and Energy production. 


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.

The IB Diploma Programme visual arts course encourages students to challenge their own creative and cultural expectations and boundaries. It is a thought-provoking course in which students develop analytical skills in problem-solving and divergent thinking, while working towards technical proficiency and confidence as art-makers. In addition to exploring and comparing visual arts from different perspectives and in different contexts, students are expected to engage in, experiment with and critically reflect upon a wide range of contemporary practices and media. The course is designed for students who want to go on to study visual arts in higher education as well as for those who are seeking lifelong enrichment through visual arts.

This course is designed to support students who study French B for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme at either Higher or Standard Level. 

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.

Mathematics: applications and interpretation is for students who are interested in developing their mathematics for describing our world and solving practical problems. They will also be interested in harnessing the power of technology alongside exploring mathematical models. Students who take Mathematics: applications and interpretation will be those who enjoy mathematics best when seen in a practical context.

In this Online P.E Course, grade 12 students will continue to develop an understanding of effective and safe fitness performance. They will be encouraged to master the skills related to planning, performing and evaluating personal fitness routines. As a result, grade 12 students will: 

• analyze the factors affecting performance

• plan and perform fitness routines

• improve their knowledge, skills and understanding of fitness routines

• evaluate and improve their fitness routines 



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.
