Why Celebrate Merit?

The school actively encourages academic excellence and there are a range of scholarships and awards available each year. Our approach recognises the skills and aptitudes of all learners and responds appropriately. It is one which values high achievement relative to each student’s individual progress and celebrates students who embody the principles and values of the school and the International Baccalaureate Organization.



Awards for Academic Merit

  1. A discount of €1.400 may be awarded to students continuing students in Grades 10 and 11 if they achieve nine straight As at the end of the academic year.
  2. A discount of €1.400 may be awarded to students in Grade 12 on achievement of a minimum of six grade As and no other grade lower than a C in the IGCSE results.

IB Learner Profile Awards

  1. Two continuing Elementary and two continuing Middle/High School students will be offered two awards respectively during the academic year reflecting the IB Learner Profile attributes.
  2. Recipients of these awards will be offered a discount of €1.400 at the end of the school year. Under no circumstances will the award sum be paid directly in cash to the beneficiary.
