During the first three weeks of Y12, the school operates a system of
induction to introduce the students to the skills required for the IB
programme. As well as allowing the teachers to assess the study skills
of the new students, it is also an opportunity for the students to get a
taste of each of their six subjects and if necessary make changes in
At the heart of the Induction programme is an historical research activity.
In pairs students research a 20th century history topic of their own choice,
presenting their work in the form of a website and making a
PowerPoint presentation to the class. As well as an opportunity to
research a topic of interest it is also an opportunity to make the
most of doing history in a laptop classroom.
