Our Boys Middle School proudly presents an all-boys IB Middle Years Program (MYP) curriculum, running parallel to the very successful all-girls MYP program already in place. Embracing the signature Middle School curriculum that has flourished since the school's inception, our program revolves around personalized experiential and problem-based learning. The rigorous mathematics and science curricula, cutting-edge design and computer science programs, and world-class performing and visual arts await your boys, mirroring the challenges that have enriched the educational journeys of our girls. Enriching the holistic education experience, the Boys Middle School offers access to high-quality sports programs and a balanced health and wellness curriculum.
Looking ahead, we are excited to announce that after 2026, the Senior School will thrive in a mixed-gender environment. Upon graduation, both girls and boys will be rewarded with the prestigious Branksome Hall Asia diploma and alumni status, marking the completion of a transformative educational journey. Join us in shaping a future where excellence knows no gender boundaries.
Experience the transformative educational journey of the "Diamond Model" at Branksome Hall Asia, where your child benefits from a unique blend of single-sex and coeducational environments. This innovative model ensures a well-rounded educational experience that evolves with the developmental needs of each student.
In the Junior School phase, students learn together, fostering mutual understanding, respect, and a deep appreciation for equality and diversity. Here, your child, as a junior schooler, is celebrated for their individuality, irrespective of gender, and is nurtured to embrace cooperation and collaboration from an early age.
As your child progresses to Middle School, the "Diamond Model" introduces a separation of boys and girls during a critical phase of academic and personal development. Research strongly supports the idea that a single-sex environment during these years enhances student confidence, challenges gender-related stereotypes, and fosters an environment conducive to academic progress. The focused approach enables teachers to employ gender-sensitive teaching styles and address pastoral issues more effectively, ensuring a supportive and empowering experience for your sons and daughters.
Transitioning into the Senior School phase, your child collaborates with peers of both genders, preparing them for the complexities of university, adulthood, and the professional world. Branksome Hall Asia's Senior School coeducation challenges existing gender stereotypes, empowering both boys and girls to explore their genuine interests and diverse career options.
The "Diamond Model" at Branksome Hall Asia is not just an educational philosophy; it is a comprehensive approach that recognizes the distinct advantages of both single-sex and coeducation, ultimately shaping well-rounded individuals ready to navigate the challenges of the real world with confidence and competence.
The International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Program (MYP) is a comprehensive and internationally acclaimed educational framework designed for students aged 11 to 16. Emphasizing holistic development, the MYP goes beyond traditional academic boundaries to foster critical thinking, creativity, and intercultural understanding. The program is structured around eight subject groups, encouraging students to explore a diverse range of disciplines, including language acquisition, humanities, sciences, mathematics, arts, physical education, design, and individuals and societies. At the core of the MYP lies the learner profile, which instills values such as inquisitiveness, open-mindedness, and reflective thinking. Through a combination of interdisciplinary learning, community service, and a personal project, the MYP not only equips students with a strong academic foundation but also nurtures their ability to make meaningful connections between their studies and the real world. As a globally recognized and rigorous educational framework, the IB MYP prepares students for success in the final years of schooling and beyond, cultivating well-rounded individuals ready to tackle the challenges of a rapidly changing world.
