About the MYP Programme
IB at Newlands:
Newlands takes pride in introducing international curricula, including IB. Newlands moving towards an IB continuum school over the years, is not a sudden change but a natural progression of an IB World school that has very successfully implemented the IB PYP and has grown over the years as a school of choice and repute.
There are currently 3 Newlands’ campuses across Pakistan: Newlands Lahore, Newlands Islamabad and Newlands Multan. Newlands Lahore has the distinction of being the first IB PYP authorized school in the Beaconhouse System and amongst all the private schools in Lahore offering IB. All Newlands schools are now offering MYP as Candidate schools. Newlands Islamabad is now a Continuum school offering all three programmes of IB i.e. PYP, MYP and DP.
iGCSE will be phased out.

The Middle Years Programme (MYP) is one of four International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes offered. It is designed as a five-year programme for students aged 11-16. It is an equivalent of O level GCE or iGCE.
The MYP Curriculum framework comprises eight subject groups, providing a broad and balanced education for early adolescents.
The MYP requires at least 50 hours of teaching time for each subject group, in each year of the programme. In the final two years of the programme, carefully-defined subject group flexibility allows students to meet local requirements and personal learning goals.
It offers a wider range of subjects and a blend of science and humanities, which makes for a more rounded education and better options at university level instead of opting for specialized subjects at O level.
