A Message from the Headmaster
Welcome to the International British Academy’s website and thank you for your interest in our IBA. This is an exciting time to be a part of this growing and dynamic school as we prepare to be the international school-of-choice for parents who want their children to experience an education that prepares them for a changing world and a global society.
As we prepare our students for entry into highly selective universities and to pursue challenging careers with rigorous and diverse academic programmes, we also ensure that each student learns personal and social responsibility through programmes that encourage self-discipline and community service.
At IBA our vision is to provide the highest quality of British education whilst at the same time preserving the best of Filipino culture and tradition in a multicultural and international environment where differences are respected and treasured.
The most important person to you and this academy is your child and we consider it a privilege to work with you to ensure that your child achieves their personal best in a safe and nurturing community. Remembering that one of our important tasks is to produce leaders for the future, IBA encourages its students to exercise leadership that is compassionate, democratic and tolerant with an education that rests on the following five pillars:
- Academic excellence that promotes ethical enquiry and informed choices
- Student-centred approaches to learning, which nurture creativity
- Developing confidence, self-reliance and self-esteem
- Promoting democracy and a sense of responsibility to our community
- Promoting a respect for the environment
I hope that browsing the pages of this web-site gives you a glimpse into the life of the IBA family where we strive to challenge every student to achieve his or her potential, and to develop the skills and interests to be lifelong learners and responsible citizens.
– Mr. Bryan Riddin, Headmaster, International British Academy
