Group 6: The Arts, or second subject from groups 2, 3, or 4

Overview of Courses

Through studying the Arts, students become aware of how artists work and communicate. Visual Arts allows students to explore personal themes, express these in an appropriate context, and is a course that favours studio work.

The other option in Group 6 is to study a second subject, at standard or higher level, from groups 2, 3, or 4. This option allows students who wish to have a particular focus to shape the IB Diploma to meet their needs.

There are 2 options on offer, both at standard and higher level.
