Islamic heritage is an integral part of our school culture. The Islamic Religion directs out vision and mission, which also leads our perspective of tolerance and acceptance towards other cultures. Our students are strong because they have deep Islamic values and are at the same time open-minded and ready to take in the positive and right virtues of the world. IEC students are well-rounded 21 century students.

Therefore, our teachers are equipped with the most recent teaching methods and approaches. They put all their power of knowledge and teaching skills to promote students’ reflective, analytical and innovative thinking skills.

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.

As a school authorized for both British and IB programmes, we believe that the best contribution in life is to invest in the education of the young learners who can make a difference.

We look forward to welcoming you to IEC!

Islamic Educational College is a Candidate School* for the Middle Years Programme (MYP) . This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Islamic Educational College Schools believes is important for our students.

Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme, or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted. For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit

The Middle Years Programme (MYP) is an educational framework for students aged 11-16, offered by the International Baccalaureate (IB). It is designed to provide a comprehensive and holistic education that encourages students to become active, compassionate, and lifelong learners.

As a candidate school, IEC is currently in the process of implementing the IB programmes and undergoing evaluation to become an authorized IB World School.

The MYP is built around eight subject groups: Language and Literature, Language Acquisition, Individuals and Societies, Sciences, Mathematics, Arts, Physical and Health Education, and Design. Students study each of these subject groups, with an emphasis on interdisciplinary learning that connects the subjects together. The MYP also places a strong focus on developing critical thinking, inquiry-based learning, and intercultural awareness.

In addition to their academic studies, MYP students complete a Personal Project, which is a self-directed piece of research or creative work that allows them to explore their interests and passions. They also engage in Service Learning, which involves actively engaging with their local community and making a positive impact.

Assessment in the MYP is criterion-referenced, meaning that students are assessed against a set of clear and consistent criteria, rather than being ranked against each other. This approach allows for a more holistic and individualized assessment of each student’s progress.

The MYP aims to develop students who are knowledgeable, open-minded, caring, reflective, and principled. It prepares them for further study in the IB Diploma Programme, as well as for success in their future academic and professional lives.

The International Baccalaureate Programme at IEC is a two-year educational programme for students aged 16 – 19. This programme aims to develop and encourage both personal and academic achievement, and challengs students to excel in their studies and personal development. IBDP also strives to prepare students who are equipped to live in the new globally highly integrated world, whereas their intercultural tolerance and respect will be fully utilized. IBDP also enhances students’ sense of responsibility to enable them to face difficulties and challenges. This is done by providing them with a wide range of capacities that go beyond intellectual development and academic success.

All of this is captured in the IB Mission Statement:

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.

To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.

These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.

IEC Mission aligns with the IB Mission:
