ACG Senior College offers Year 11 students a unique course that combines the best elements of two prestigious international programmes: International Baccalaureate (IB) and the Cambridge International Examinations (CIE). Throughout Year 11 students prepare for the Cambridge IGCSE examinations in each subject. In addition the Core Programme provides a range of learning in financial literacy, global perspectives, second language, health and fitness and the creative arts. On completion students are awarded the ACG Senior College Year 11 Diploma and are well prepared to choose between either the IB Diploma Programme or the Cambridge A Level Programme.

These pathways lead to globally recognised international qualifications recognised by Universities around the world.
