Stu­dents in the sixth form at King Ethel­bert School study the Inter­na­tional Bac­calau­re­ate Career-​Related Pro­gramme (IBCP). The IBCP is a rig­or­ous qual­i­fi­ca­tion where stu­dents study one BTEC Level 3 course and 2 IB Diploma Pro­gramme courses, graded on a 71 scale, as well as pass a unique IBCP core com­pris­ing a per­sonal and pro­fes­sional skills course, ser­vice learn­ing, a reflec­tive project and lan­guage acqui­si­tion. The school has received global recog­ni­tion for the inspi­ra­tional lead­er­ship and deliv­ery of the IBCP.
