Our Junior School is designed to inspire excitement and curiosity, and leads seamlessly into the Senior School curriculum.
We strike a balance between the core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science, and a wide range of other subjects including French, Art, Music, Drama, Geography, History, Religious Studies, Physical Education (PE), and Computing. We encourage our Junior School students to start developing their own interests and aptitudes early. A maximum staff-student ratio of 1:5 ensures they receive exceptional levels of attention and encouragement. Our aim is to give our Junior School learners a firm foundation on which to build and, most importantly, to give them a love of learning.
This new approach to unified learning leaves behind the traditional expectations of education to push students into a whole new world of discovery. The programme has been designed to provide a solid academic structure upon which to build new and exciting elements of this fresh approach to curriculum.
In the Junior School, students take part in our expeditions programme five times a term. The tasks become increasingly more challenging, ensuring they are thoroughly prepared for more advanced expeditions by the time they reach the Senior School. Students are also given the opportunity to engage in Aiglon's Activities programme, working to develop new skills and pursue unique experiences in everything from horse riding to volunteer work.
We believe in providing a world-class, inspirational educational experience. As with everything, we push boundaries to take our students in directions that will enrich their potential at every step. Each family’s path toward discovering the right school is unique - but one aspect that joins all families is the quality of the curriculum the student will experience. At Aiglon, we are committed to continual progress when it comes to our students’ education, and we strive to discover more ways to make our curriculum as rich, varied, and fulfilling as possible. The world Aiglonians are stepping into is one of constant change, and we continue to craft our educational philosophy in ways that prepare them while enriching their experience.
Upon entering our senior school, students will develop a greater emphasis on taking responsibility for their personal learning. Our subjects go into greater detail than previously, and Science is divided into three separate subjects. Year 9 Aiglonians take French as well as either Spanish or German. Other world languages such as Mandarin Chinese, Japanese, Russian and Arabic are also available as minority subjects. Internal exams are taken at the end of Autumn and Summer terms. Following the previous years of understanding a student’s interests and goals, they select subjects with which they wish to continue their educational journey within our 2-year International GCSE programme.
In Years 10 and 11, Aiglonians work toward achieving IGCSE qualifications.
Students in their final two years at Aiglon (Years 12 & 13) undertake the academically challenging and holistic International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP). This internationally recognised qualification is the perfect bridge to further university studies and beyond. Widely considered to be the future of education - the International Baccalaureate programme is a challenging yet holistically fulfilling learning experience for senior school students. The qualification is recognised by top universities worldwide. Students who complete the programme develop skills highly sought by further educational establishments and employers. To learn more and view detailed information, please visit our page dedicated to the IB Diploma Programme.
As senior Aiglonians move toward their final years with us, we find it integral to their development to place greater emphasis on how fully they engage with the school’s holistic tenets and the responsibilities that we hold in high regard. As such, in order to achieve the Aiglon diploma, students must complete at least two or three expeditions each term - undertaking activities such as rock climbing, cross country skiing, and three-day Long Expeditions, among others. It’s important to note certain trips are compulsory, though our students take an independent approach to selecting other weekends in which they participate. In addition, senior Aiglonians are expected to engage with regular Sport, Ski, CAS & Activities programmes, alongside displaying conduct that embodies our Guiding Principles.

Each Aiglon IB student needs to choose 6 subjects to study as well as the 3 core subjects: Extended Essay, Theory of Knowledge and CAS (Creativity, Activity and Service).
Students choose six subjects - three to study to Standard Level (SL) and three to greater depth at Higher Level (HL). Students must take one subject from each following group: Group 1 - Studies in Language and Literature Group 2 - Language Acquisition Group 3 - Individuals and Societies Group 4 - Sciences Group 5 - Mathematics Group 6 - Arts and Electives
The extended essay is an in-depth study of a focused topic, usually chosen from one of the student's six IB DP subjects. It is intended to promote academic research and writing skills, providing students with an opportunity to engage in personal research in a topic of their own choice, under the guidance of a supervisor. This leads to a major piece of formally presented, structured writing, in which ideas and findings are communicated.
TOK is core and compulsory to the IB. The overall aim of TOK is to encourage students to formulate answers to the question “How do you know?” in a variety of contexts, and to see the value of that question. This allows students to develop an enduring fascination with the richness of knowledge.
Studied throughout the two years, CAS involves students in a range of activities alongside their academic studies. It is not formally assessed. However, students reflect on their CAS experiences as part of the DP, and provide evidence of achieving the eight learning outcomes for CAS.
