International Academy of Greenwich is a candidate school* for the Middle Years Programme. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that International Academy of Greenwich believes is important for our students.

*Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its three academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), or the Diploma Programme (and in addition the IB Career-related Certificate). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.

Be part of the change

To achieve our vision requires much more than a didactic, teacher led and heavily structured approach to teaching and learning. It requires the empowerment of learners by educators, by the Curriculum and through the taught curriculum. It requires an approach which shifts learning onto learners, one which enables the development of independence and mastery through interdependence and collaboration with others. Problem solving and enquiry driven learning with opportunities to engage with the real-world in an authentic education are also key.

We naturally want all students at the International Acad­emy of Greenwich to be valued and to achieve their very best in every aspect of their lives. As such our ambition is for all learners to become Global Citizens, equipped with the skills and outlook they need to live, study and work in the UK or abroad. As such the Curriculum at IAG is broad and balanced, authentic and appropriately challenging, and exceeds the requirements of both the English National Curriculum (at KS3 & 4) and the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme in developing a range of cognitive and non-cognitive attitudes, skills and attributes.

Our Curriculum is designed to engineer and facilitate all that is outlined above, what we call An Education for Global Citizenship.

A Global education is one  which interacts with the local contexts and the best way to do this is through engaging with Community Educators. We wish to take full advantage of what the rich community of Greenwich, Blackheath and Lee have to offer us and our students. Volunteering is a great way to give back to this community and of course allows flexibility while pursuing passions and interest. For some it is also a useful way to get yourself on the career ladder especially in organisations, such as the International Academy of Greenwich, which are small but expanding. It is also a route into teaching.

The International Academy of Greenwich prides itself on embracing diversity and promoting equality. We welcome applications for volunteering regardless of age, gender, race, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, disability or religious belief. Safer recruitment practices are followed and any subsequent appointment is subject to an enhanced DBS check. All positions are term time only; our term dates are available here.  Please note we only accept applications online.
