Experience IES College

An independent, secular, co-educational not for profit senior high school for year 11 and 12 students. 

Located in Spring Hill, Brisbane, IES College is a new senior high school that opened in January 2021 for year 11 students. It is authorised as an IB World School and offers the IB Diploma Programme.

IB World Schools share a common philosophy – a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education – that we believe is important for our students. IES College provides a smaller, more personalised senior high school experience that delivers education in an inclusive environment where young people from diverse backgrounds and experiences will develop skills and embrace values to create positive change in the world.

Why IES College?

  1. The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme – A Holistic Approach to Learning
IES College, as an IB World School, offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP). The IBDP curriculum holistically develops the whole student – balancing academic subjects with student led personal development through the CAS programme of creativity, activity and service and an individual research project which prepares students for university level study, all part of strengthening the students’ skills as responsible, independent learners.

In the IBDP, students learn to collaborate, work in teams, and confidently communicate their ideas to each other. They learn to think critically and creatively, navigate uncertainties and take measured risks as they embrace diversity with a global mindset. These concepts are at the very core of the IBDP and will help students develop a broader life view, preparing them for success.

  1. A Student-Focused, Boutique Learning Environment
We started small, and have a commitment to staying small. IES College smaller boutique environment provides a personalised student experience, encouraging each student to reach their full potential, feel safe and supported. Bigger isn’t always better. The college takes a whole-of-student-development approach to teaching and learning; the students are simultaneously challenged, engaged, supported and nurtured. Simply put, our students are being heard. Students are welcome on campus anytime between 8am and 6pm, but classes will only begin at 9.30am, because IES College understands that a later start is what teenage bodies and brains need to flourish.

Thanks to our smaller size, IES College has partnered with a range of community groups in Spring Hill and beyond, to extend learning beyond the classroom and offer an experiential learning environment. For students, not every day will be spent in the classroom. Many of the activities will take place off-campus, outdoors in the local community. Brisbane is our campus!

  1. Inclusion and Diversity
Adolescence is an exciting time for teenagers to increase independence and begin to look forward to their lives beyond high school. Teenagers undergo many changes, both emotional and physical, even cognitive changes. It is important to allow students to appreciate themselves and their individualities. IES College has diversity and inclusion at its core and diversity comes in many forms, from race, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic background, culture and more. Being exposed to diversity, students gain a broader perspective, grow an acceptance of others and learn the skills to communicate with people from a broad range of Backgrounds preparing them for life beyond school and their immediate communities for the wider world.

IES College doesn’t just talk about diversity and inclusion; it lives, breathes it and lead by example. Our teachers and professional staff are multilingual and multicultural. Students can also access virtual global classrooms to learn and collaborate with students from around the world. For students for whom English isn’t their first language, IES College gives them the opportunity to maintain their mother tongue language, ensuring there are support and resources available to maintain a connection to language and culture.
