Welcome to the LBIS website where you can find numerous resources to give you a strong sense of our academic programme. LBIS is accredited to deliver the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP) in Forms 1 to 5 and the Diploma Programme (DP) in Forms 6 and 7. The educational philosophy and guiding statements of the school closely aligns with those of the IB. The IB Learner Profile is at the centre of everything we do, both, within and outside of the classroom. We also offer the IGCSE to students in Forms 4 and 5. By browsing through the curriculum section of this site you will find overviews which outline the concepts, knowledge and skills which are being developed across the school in every subject we offer. The curriculum makes strong connections to real world issues and there is an emphasis on the development of skills which will prepare the students for success beyond their enrollment at the school. LBIS offers a stimulating and challenging environment for learning and we are always exploring ways to further improve teaching and learning in our school. We are proud of the high percentage of students every year who obtain bilingual IB Diplomas. We are also very proud of our staff who are committed to assisting our students to reach their academic, physical, social and emotional potential.

quotes

 At LBIS Pastoral Care takes an inclusive function. It is inextricably linked with the academic curriculum and the structural organization of the school. Hence, the programme promotes “students personal and social development and fosters positive attitudes: through the quality of teaching and learning: through the nature of relationship amongst students, teachers and adults other than teachers; through the monitoring of students’ progress, academic personal and social; through specific pastoral and support systems and through extra-curricular activities and the school ethos. Our mission is to provide a supportive and caring environment which promotes the child’s personal, social and physical well being.  Thereby, we aim at fostering student’s understanding of and respect for different spiritual and cultural values whilst supporting and validating their own experiences and beliefs. Opportunities are thus provided to students to enlarge a range of interpersonal, social, moral, ethical and cultural issues, which will enable them to develop a positive moral character, personal and interpersonal skills. We thus aim at continuously improve the supportive processes for the children, teachers and the school: shaping teaching and learning: encouraging dialogues with students; developing partnerships with other services within the community; shaping the school organization, ethos and environment and developing tools for evaluating pastoral care standards. At LBIS the promotion of the health, well being, resilience, academic care and social capital is ensured by a team of people, comprising of the School counselor, the career’s counselor, the SEN and the life skills Coordinator, the Form coordinators and their team of Form Tutors, the Nurse, the health and safety officer, the CAS coordinator, the resource centre coordinator (librarian), the activity coordinators, the events coordinator, the curriculum department and the maintenance department. All the stakeholders mentioned above work as a team to ensure that at LBIS we uphold a school conditions that continuously promotes students’ welfare.
