Our flexible BiBac® (Bilingual Baccalaureate) programme for 16-18 year old is unique to the British Council School and prepares students to compete for places at the world's top universities. We offer students the possibility of studying the degree of their choice, at the university of their choice, in the country of their choice.
BiBac® – Bilingual Baccalaureate
1. BiBac® Science and Technology – Engineering & Architecture
2. BiBac® Science and Technology – Health Sciences
3. BiBac® Social Sciences – Humanities
Students receive help and advice to choose from one of these 3 BiBac® options. Each option provides a wide range of subjects, targeted towards their future degree choices and opening the door to a promising future career. When they finish their BiBac®, our multilingual students are able to speak English, Spanish and French. They also have the option to take German and Chinese. Students are supported by advisors in Y10 and Y11 and counsellors in Y12 and Y13. This enables them to plan their future career path having had the benefit of a broad education in Humanities, Sciences, Technology and Social Sciences.
BiBac® combines academic study with a large number of co-curricular activities and opportunities for students to practically apply what they learn in the classroom. Students can choose what they study, and what language (English or Spanish) they want to study each subject in, studying up to 70% of their subjects in English. This gives them the opportunity to access the technical and specialist language of these subjects, which will give them an advantage at university and in their careers .
We equip students with competencies such as leadership, team-working, negotiation, public speaking and entrepreneurial skills, which are crucial to get ahead at university and in the workplace.
We prepare our students to step out into a world full of opportunities. BiBac® goes beyond bilingualism and biculturalism - British Council School graduates are multilingual and multicultural. They also develop a social conscience through local and international community service.

British Council Year 12 Clubs
Our Clubs and ALE are one way in which our students begin to develop a wider range of skills. At the same time, they enjoy learning and to also put their skills and knowledge into practice. These skills will prove to be very useful later, when they are aiming for University places and to help them succeed in their chosen degree subjects.
All students add a Year 12 Club to their academic programme within the school day. These activities give students the opportunity to practically apply the academic knowledge they gain through the curriculum, or develop complementary skills.
