Somersfield Academy will be holding an open house event for prospective families with students interested in attending the new Somersfield Academy International Baccalaureate [IB] Diploma Programme [DP] on Thursday [Oct 18]

A spokesperson said, “The open house begins at 5:45pm sharp and will include an open discussion format. This discussion will be an opportunity to ask questions of staff and existing students, to discover the new features of the purpose-built facility, and give students insight on the launch of the IB Diploma Programme.

Kate Ross, who recently joined the Somersfield Team as the Head of the IB Diploma Programme, said, “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. The addition of the DP is a natural transition and I am excited to be leading the school through this development.

“The IB Diploma Programme is an academically challenging and balanced programme of education with rigorous course work 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 provides 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.

“Our programme will be housed in the purpose built DP Building with its designated student centre, DP Media Resource Facility and classrooms designed for seminar style lesson delivery, similar to those found in the top universities worldwide.”

Carlos Symonds, Head of School, said, “To complete our unique continuum of student-centered education, Somersfield will add the IB Diploma to our educational suite from September, 2019. 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. We invite potential students to attend the Open House to discover this fresh and exciting option for completing pre-university studies locally.”

“All are welcome to attend and learn more about the advantages of an IB continuum education.
