IB World Schools must undergo a rigorous authorization process in order to offer an IB programme. Its curriculum is recognized all over the world and IB standards and focus is universal across all IB World schools. As a result, an IB Diploma graduate often receives a higher level of university acceptance, not to mention greater scholarship potential. An IB Diploma holder may also receive credit for courses in first-year university. Please consult each university regarding its specific IB admissions policies and advanced credit award policies.

Overton Grange School is a co-educational community of approximately 1,250 11-19 year old students. In June 2011 the School converted from being a secondary school run by the London Borough of Sutton to ‘Academy Status’ (an independent state school overseen by the Department for Education). This means we have more control over our curriculum and resources but we remain absolutely committed to high quality non-selective education for local Sutton children and to working in close partnership with secondary and primary schools and the local community.
