Just found out that my children's school is giving up teaching A levels in favour of IB. Mini MM will be in the first cohort to be affected. To date the school has offered both, with fairly weak results in the IB, it has to be said. Mini has a fairly clear idea of where she wants her further ed to go - very literary/creative, intends to pursue a career in writing/illustration - and had selected her A levels accordingly. ( In her head, that is, not actuality - in Y10). What good is IB to her? Apart from the seemingly ridiculous workload, she hates sciences and current GCSE projections are OK but not glorious! We have not been consulted as parents at all, and had no idea that this was coming. Do we search out somewhere else for 6th form or are all schools ( and this is an acadamy) heading this way? Whilst I know it's natural to feel negative about big changes I am not happy about this. Mini MM is very worried already about both the possibilityof having to leave a school where she is happy and having to do subjects she hates at a higher level. Any thoughts welcome here!
