At Thamesview School Sixth Form, we offer the International Baccalaureate Career-Related Programme (IBCP).

Through the completion of an enriched curriculum, students are able to discover the merits of independent learning, collaborative learning and reflective practice. 

The following provides information about the Sixth Form, and detailed literature surrounding the IBCP qualification. Should you wish to apply, information surrounding the application process is enclosed. We look forward to welcoming you to Thamesview School!
