IB DIPLOMA PROGRAMME
A very warm welcome to the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme at Somersfield Academy!
An established IB MYP school, Somersfield Academy’s mission is fully aligned with that of the International Baccalaureate Organization as evidenced in its teaching practices and inclusive ethos. Somersfield Academy is a candidate school for the IB Diploma Programme and pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education- that we believe is important for our students.
The IB Diploma Programme is an academically challenging and balanced programme of education with rigorous coursework and final examinations that prepare students, aged 16-19, for success at university and in life beyond. The DP aims to encourage students to be knowledgeable, inquiring, caring, open-minded and to develop intercultural understanding and the attitude necessary to appreciate a range of viewpoints. The programme is recognized and respected by the world’s leading universities.
Somersfield Academy is looking forward to continuing the journey of education for students who can now join the school at age three and complete the learning continuum in the community that they have grown to love. Somersfield Academy is the only school in Bermuda to offer a Montessori start and an IB finish.
The DP at Somersfield Academy will provide a robust preparation for tertiary education and the workforce. Students aspiring to be doctors, lawyers, engineers, business entrepreneurs, actuaries and artists, as well as those who are undecided about their future careers, will find our range of DP courses will meet the admission requirements to allow them to fulfil those dreams and aspirations.

IB DIPLOMA PROGRAMME
To complete our unique continuum of student-centered education, Somersfield will be adding the IB Diploma to our educational suite. The state of the art facility which will house the academically-rigorous Diploma Programme (DP) is currently under construction. With the addition of the DP, Somersfield will become Bermuda’s first school to offer multiple IB programmes and take its place as the island’s leader in inquiry-based, international education for students aged 3-19.
