Prepare for Success

At the Pre-IB Summer Course, students who are about to enter into their first year of the IB will get a chance to develop core skills required for succeeding in the IB as well as focus on revision in up to four IB subjects. In addition, it is an excellent way to meet other students who are about to embark on the same journey as themselves.


Students Arrive

Tutors and students join us before the course begins begins for tea and coffee. This time offers students an excellent opportunity to meet other Pre - IB students at the course, their workshop tutors, and prepare for the day.


Introductory talk

Students are welcomed to the course and their workshop tutors by the Elite IB team. We'll make sure you're perfectly set up for the day with itineraries, handouts, and safety information.


Workshops begin

Whether you start the day with one of the Core IB workshops or you have the whole day dedicated to one subject you’ll sit down with other students in your workshop to begin with your workshop tutors. You'll have a small break in the middle of the morning, but workshops are focused and always provide students with the key information you need to succeed in your final year.



Who doesn't long for lunch? As well as being a great opportunity to refuel, you can also spend you time getting to know other students at the course, ask your tutors any burning questions you might have.


Workshops resume

Return to your workshops for the afternoon.


Workshops end

After each workshop has concluded, the workshop leaders and Elite IB team remain on-hand for any queries attendees may have. There will be an opportunity to provide feedback and chat with other students at the course.

What students should bring?

We advise students to bring along all equipment they take to school to study, particularly calculators, compasses, and formula books for Mathematics students, as well as pens and notebooks to make notes during their workshops.

If you're particularly concerned about one aspect of a syllabus, we'd also encourage you to bring your existing notes on the topic to the subject workshop so you can add to them with the support of your tutor.
