MYP projects provide students the opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned in the MYP. All students must complete both the personal project and the community project:
• The community project encourages students to explore their right and responsibility to implement service as action in the community. Students may complete the community project individually or in small groups.
• Each student develops a personal project independently, producing a truly personal and creative piece of work that stands as a summative review of their ability to conduct independent work.
The MYP personal project helps students develop confidence as principled, lifelong learners. Students in the final year of the programme (M5) explore an area of personal interest over an extended period. Through this independent inquiry, students consolidate their learning and develop important skills for further education and life beyond the classroom. Students use the engagement with practical explorations to write a report that is assessed by their supervisor and then externally moderated by the IB to ensure a globally-consistent standard of excellence.
Further details of the MYP Personal Project are given in the school’s Personal Project Guide and in the personal project presentation.
