VIC, Melbourne Eastern Suburbs
At Tintern Grammar, we are proud to have offered the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IB) for over 20 years. Respected and recognised worldwide as a benchmark of academic excellence, the IB was developed to give students an optimal preparation for university and further tertiary studies.
The IB Diploma is a two-year curriculum undertaken in Years 11 and 12. IB provides an alternative to VCE and VCE/VET, focusing on independent research and essay writing, and has a distinct emphasis on educating the whole person. Strong emphasis is placed on the ideals of international understanding and responsible citizenship.
The IB Diploma is recognised by all Australian tertiary institutions and major universities worldwide. Tintern is the only school in our region to offer this globally renowned study pathway.

Tintern’s VCE and IB results are among the top in our region.
What our IB graduates say about the Diploma
“When I was in Year 10, I was really torn between IB and VCE. The deciding factor was the advice given to me from past students - they told me what a rewarding experience IB was for them and that they built strong relationships with their peers and teachers. I found my experience to be the same.” – Caitlin
“If you can cope with a slightly larger workload and enjoy variety in your subjects, as well as being a bit more independent in your learning, then IB is a good option. I loved doing all the investigations because I was able to research things I am interested in. For my chemistry investigation, I looked at Vitamin C in capsicum. I love baking and cooking, so this was a good way to apply what I was learning to real life. That’s what was great about IB - we looked at how we actually use what we are learning.” – Rosie
