The Royal Harbour Academy in Ramsgate says there have been exceptional achievements from its Sixth Form students in the International Baccalaureate Career-Related Programme.

With a rigorous curriculum including a Level 3 BTEC Diploma and two IB Diploma Programme courses, the school says students have demonstrated outstanding dedication and academic excellence.

In addition to their coursework, students successfully completed the IBCP core, which includes personal and professional skills development, a community-focused service learning project, and a reflective essay exploring an ethical dilemma. They also immersed themselves in an international culture through mandatory language acquisition.
