The Prep School Baccalaureate
We endorse your desire for a rigorous and well-balanced academic curriculum and your vision of the PSB Learner. - Dr John Cox (Royal Grammar School, Guildford)
"We are very happy to endorse the Prep School Baccalaureate as a framework for entry to Malvern College and, indeed, to regard it as a stand-alone qualification for matriculation to us." - Antony Clark (Malvern College)
"Senior schools like Marlborough are increasingly interested in the whole process of the balance between teaching and learning. This suits modern global syllabuses and the Prep School Baccalaureate is broad in its scope thereby leading to the prospect of a truly balanced education." - Jonathan Leigh (Marlborough)
The Prep School Baccalaureate is an assessment model that has at its heart the development of the values, skills, attitudes and behaviours required for children to succeed and flourish in an ever changing world. Children are encouraged, recognised and celebrated in their achievements, and directly prepared for the next step of their educational journey.
