What is the Primary Years Programme (PYP)?

It is a transdisciplinary programme of international education designed to foster the development of the whole child.


The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP) is designed for students aged 3 to 12. It focuses on the total growth of the developing child, touching hearts as well as minds and encompassing social, physical, emotional and cultural needs in addition to academic development.


The PYP draws on research and best practice from a range of national systems with a wealth of knowledge and experience from international schools to create a relevant, engaging, challenging and significant educational framework for all children.


The PYP is one of three programmes offered by the International Baccalaureate (IB).
