Academic Summer and CAS

The IB Diploma encourages you to be involved in artistic pursuits, sports and community service work, thus fostering your awareness and appreciation of life outside the academic arena.


The leisure programme incorporates aspects of the Creativity, Action and Service (CAS) strand of the IB Diploma. You will be encouraged to learn new skills, work as a team, aim for your Personal Best and keep a diary about your experiences during the summer.


You will do most activities in your Leadership pods. Your Leadership pod will be a mixed nationality group so you can learn to work together with people from different cultures to you. During the course there will be various Leadership pod competitions where you will work as a team to win points for your Leadership pod. There will be a winning Leadership pod each week.
