Choosing Between A Levels and the International Baccalaureate

| 0 comments| by Sarah Frei Sarah Frei

Two of the most popular academic programs for Grade 11/12  students globally are Advanced Levels (A Levels), which are the national examination of England, Wales and Northern Ireland and the International Baccalaureate (IB). Most international schools will offer either of these two curricula for 16-18 year olds.


Here at Brillantmont, our students have the choice of an American High School Diploma with SAT / AP or studying for A Levels. But why do we recommend this programme over the IB and what are the main benefits for our students?

Brillantmont is a school which changes lives.

Our outstanding teachers, our support and care and our incredible learning environment inspire students and help them feel confident and comfortable with themselves. As educators, we are proud to play such a key role in the lives of young people. It is a privilege and an honour. Nothing makes us prouder than to follow their journeys and celebrate their accomplishments, to see how they grow and develop to become mature, responsible young citizens of the world.

In this video, we share the journey of Megan, who has been at Brillantmont for several years. Now in her final year, she recounts the impact that Brillantmont has made on her life and her future choices.

My Model United Nations experience - Nicolas

| 0 comments| by Student Voice Student Voice

This week Brillantmont students are at MUN in the Hague. Model United Nations is an integral part of our programmes and we are delighted to participate in two overseas conferences each year, in addition to the MUN events we join locally.

Nicolas, an 11th Grade student, shares his MUN Singapore experience.


"As a Brillantmont student I had the chance to take part to the THIMUN conference in Singapore. During the time of the preparation, we learned multiple skills which would be helpful during the conference such as public speaking, individual research and protocolary language relevant to the UN context.

The more the conference was approaching, the more everyone could feel the tension going up. Once arrived in Singapore, my stress reached a whole new level (the seven-hours jet lag might not have helped).

I realized that I was going to spend four days in an auditorium, full of people I didn’t know and who were probably way more prepared than me, trying to debate with them and somehow sell myself and my ideas.

We welcome students who want to be inspired, and who want to be creative.

The art department at Brillantmont delivers a curriculum that encourages students to forge their own path. Whether painting, drawing, sculpting or collage-making catch their attention, we nurture and encourage that love of art.
