TNS Beaconhouse has been accredited as Lahore's first International Baccalaureate (IB) World School and only the second in Pakistan. Making the announcement at a press conference at a local hotel, Beaconhouse Chief Executive Kasim Kasuri said "this major milestone has been reached after a rigorous 3-year accreditation process and is in line with the TNS commitment to provide an innovative and robust educational pathway for its students". Mr Kasuri also mentioned that the IB is granted the requisite equivalence to local qualifications through the IBCC (Inter-Committee Board of Chairmen) in Pakistan.

Mr Clive Barnes, TNS Head of School, displayed the school's accreditation certificate issued by IB world headquarters in Geneva and elaborated on the factors that distinguish the IB from other systems of learning. Mr Barnes brings to TNS 10 years of experience of having run IB schools around the world.

TNS has been authorised to offer the IB Middle Years Programme for students in Classes 6 to 10. In due course, it also expects to offer the IB Diploma (equivalent to A Levels). Responding to a question, Kasim Kasuri said that it was important for Pakistani students to have access to multiple styles of teaching and learning so that they could select a system best suited to their individual learning needs. He expressed the hope that government schools and other private sector schools would also consider the International Baccalaureate in the future.

The International Baccalaureate incorporates three programmes for students aged 3 to 19 and helps them develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalising world. IB programmes culminate in the highly regarded IB Diploma which is increasingly the preferred entrance qualification for universities around the world. IB World Schools can offer any or all three of the programmes. More than 140 countries offer IB education to almost a million students across the world.

The TNS educational experience revolves around the 'project-based learning' approach which, the school believes, develops in students critical thinking and problem-solving skills. TNS students are therefore natural candidates for the IB which is based on the philosophy of enquiry-based learning. IB students worldwide are encouraged to embrace and understand the connections between school subjects and the real world and to become international-minded citizens.

TNS's IB accreditation coincides with the opening of its new campus in DHA Phase V, Lahore. With large classrooms of an international standard, laboratory and media suites, music and art studios, a 3-storey library block, underground parking, multi-purpose hall and swimming and sporting facilities, it is purpose-designed to provide a fully-resourced and stimulating learning environment.
