International Baccalaureate at Wesley College

Wesley College is one of the leading International Baccalaureate (IB) coeducational schools in Australia, and is the only school in Victoria to offer an IB Programme which spans from Primary through to Senior School.

Our world-class IB Programme includes:
• The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP) – 3 Years-olds to Year 6
• The Middle Years Programme (IB MYP) – Years 7 to 10
• The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB DP) - Years 11 and 12

The IB Programme applies Wesley’s ethos of a True Education, providing a balanced approach to learning, with an emphasis on developing the whole person. It aims to instil in our students enquiring, internationally- minded thinking, in order to become active, compassionate, global citizens.

Primary Years Programme (IB PYP)

At Wesley College, the Primary Years Programme (PYP) is focused on building our students’ conceptual understanding, knowledge, skills and attitudes, not only to excel in their studies, but also for their personal growth and understanding of the world. It is grounded in a deep belief about the nature of learning and a desire to develop students who have an international outlook.

Six transdisciplinary themes of global significance provide a dynamic framework for exploration and study:
• Who we are
• Where we are in place and time
• How we express ourselves
• How the world works
• How we organise ourselves
• Sharing the planet

An international education is dynamic and responds to ever-changing global needs. Through an exploration of concepts such as conflict resolution, cultural identity, individual and collective responsibility and sustainability, we aim to develop in our children an understanding of their power to enact change at personal, local and global levels.
— Wesley College Primary Staff

Middle Years Programme (IB MYP)

The Middle Years Programme (MYP) enables students to learn and grow during a pivotal time in their lives. It builds on the knowledge and skills developed through the IB PYP, fostering a sense of intellectual curiosity, and providing students with an opportunity to express their thoughts and perspectives on what they have learnt.

Diploma Programme (IB DP)

Wesley offers a number of pathways to Senior School students, and a growing number of students (nearly half the Year 12 cohort), are electing to do our globally recognised International Baccalaureate Programme (IB DP).

Our IB DP provides a rigorous two-year pre-university curriculum, characterised by:
• Academic breadth, depth and rigour, which are recognised by universities worldwide
• Emphasis on promoting international awareness among students
• Attention to developing socially responsible citizens of the world with an awareness of global perspectives

At Wesley, we work with each student to help them select the study path that is right for them, to ensure they make informed choices about their future.

The IB DP is suited to students who aspire to pursue tertiary studies at university in Australia or overseas, and are interested in developing their international awareness and communication skills.

Wesley offers unparalleled opportunities in sport, music, visual and performing arts, community service and leadership.

Congratulations Class of 2023

As a leading coeducational open-entry school, we are proud that our Class of 2023 graduates have upheld Wesley College’s long tradition of academic achievement. They have achieved this not only through academic endeavour, but the myriad of experiences they have gained at Wesley and beyond. We celebrate their successful pursuits in sport, music, the performing and visual arts, outdoor education and community service.

We congratulate the 133 International Baccalaureate Diploma Program students who, along with our VCE students, have received their results.

Representing over a third of the Year 12 cohort, the graduating Class of 2023 marks 30 years of the IB DP at Wesley, with its first introduction in 1993. Today we celebrate the achievements of our most recent IB DP graduates. During their two-year DP journey, they have supported one another and demonstrated the attributes at the heart of both the IB’s and Wesley’s approach to learning – the pursuit of individual excellence in all areas of endeavour, resilience, compassion, personal growth, a love of learning and action.

Alongside our VCE graduates, our IB DP graduates demonstrate incredible depth of academic achievement, and we are delighted to see them recognised with these outstanding results:

  • The median ATAR for the IB DP was 91.50
  • 7% of the IB cohort, who achieved an ATAR of 99.00 or above, placing them in the top 1%
  • 30% of the IB cohort, who achieved an ATAR of 95.00 or above, placing them in the top 5%
  • 61% of the IB cohort, who achieved an ATAR of 90.00 or above, placing them in the top 10%.

We are also thrilled that the perfect study score of 7 has been achieved in 24 different subjects and we applaud the students on the outstanding results achieved in the extended essay component of the IB.

In 2023, 65% of Year 12 students completed the VCE (Victorian Certificate of Education) and 35% completed the IB DP. The combined results of the IB and VCE for the full Class of 2023 are shared below as a celebration of academic achievement:

  • The combined median ATAR for VCE and IB DP was 84.30
  • Ten students achieved an ATAR of 99 or above
  • Our Glen Waverley IB DP dux, Hunter, received a perfect score of 45 and the highest possible ATAR of 99.95
  • 33.4% of 2023 Year 12 students achieved an ATAR of 90 or above, placing them in the top 10%
  • 58% of 2023 Year 12 students achieved an ATAR of 80 or above, placing them in the top 20%
  • 99.7% of our Year 12 students received a first-round tertiary offer. See our Class of 2023 destinations.

We are delighted to congratulate our Duces on their incredible achievements.

Glen Waverley Campus Duces:

  • Hunter - IB DP 99.95
  • Will - VCE 99.60

St Kilda Road Campus Duces:

  • Junqi (Albert) - IB DP 99.75
