The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
The CAS programme is about achieving this aim by what you challenge yourself to do out of the classroom. Participating in CAS means you will involve yourself in a range of experiences covering three different elements:
|Creativity||Arts, and other experiences that involve creative thinking, exploring original ideas or performing.|
|Activity||Physical exertion contributing to a healthy lifestyle.|
|Service||An unpaid and voluntary exchange where the student responds to a need in the community that also offers a learning benefit for the student.|
CAS experiences are intrinsically linked to the learner profile at the heart of the IB Diploma programme – it's designed to promote risk-taking, an inquiring mind, a sound knowledge base, communication skills, open-mindedness and a principled and caring attitude.
By participating you'll acquire the ability to plan, organise and implement activities and projects. During the programme you will be able to extend your ability to reflect upon and evaluate the course and your own personal development.
We offer a breadth of CAS experiences to choose from, including:
- Duke of Edinburgh's Award
