At Manchester International School, we pride ourselves on providing a dynamic and enriching educational experience through the renowned International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB-PYP). This page will take you on a journey through the highlights of IB-PYP, its distinctive concepts and methodology, and its global acceptance. Let's delve into the world of IB-PYP and discover why it stands out as a transformative educational framework.

IB-PYP: Unlocking the Potential of Young Inquirers

The IB-PYP is more than just an educational program; it's a philosophy that nurtures young minds into inquisitive, responsible, and empowered individuals. Rooted in inquiry-based learning, the PYP focuses on transdisciplinary themes, cultivating the essential skills children need to become lifelong learners.

They develop their natural curiosity. They acquire the skills necessary to conduct inquiry and research and show independence in learning. They actively enjoy learning and this love of learning will be sustained throughout their lives.
They explore concepts, ideas and issues that have local and global significance. In so doing, they acquire in-depth knowledge and develop understanding across a broad and balanced range of disciplines.
They exercise initiative in applying thinking skills critically and creatively to recognise and approach complex problems, and make reasoned, ethical decisions.
They understand and express ideas and information confidently and creatively in more than one language and in a variety of modes of communication. They work effectively and willingly in collaboration with others.
They act with integrity and honesty, with a strong sense of fairness, justice and respect for the dignity of the individual, groups and communities. They take responsibility for their own actions and the consequences that accompany them.
They understand and appreciate their own cultures and personal histories, and are open to the perspectives, values and traditions of other individuals and communities. They are used to seeking and evaluating different points of view, and are willing to grow from the experience.
They show empathy, compassion and respect towards the needs and feelings of others. They have a personal commitment to service, and act to make a positive difference to the lives of others and to the environment.
They approach unfamiliar situations and uncertainty with courage and forethought, and have the independence of spirit to explore new roles, ideas and strategies. They are brave and articulate in defending their beliefs.
They understand the importance of intellectual, physical and emotional balance to achieve personal well-being for themselves and others.
They give thoughtful consideration to their own learning and experience. They are able to assess and understand their strengths and imitations in order to support their learning and personal development.

Inquiry-Led Learning for Lifelong Success

Children are natural inquirers. They explore, observe, and make sense of the world around them. The PYP harnesses this innate curiosity, guiding students to set and pursue their learning goals. In this empowering environment, students become self-efficient learners, building trust in their own ability to succeed. Teachers serve as facilitators, allowing students to take the lead in their educational journey.

The PYP Philosophy

Children are born inquirers. They use different methods to understand the world around them- they observe things, people, places and events and make meaning out of them in their own way. PYP makes every child pursue their learning goals, kindling the innate learner in them; thus, students become self-efficient to take their learning forward trusting their own ability to succeed. Teachers are mere facilitators as students evolve as agents of learning.
