IB Team at ECP

The mission of the IB Team (Upper School Team) is to maintain our school as a centre of excellence for IB learning and preparedness for future success. We support students in three areas:

  • Learning: to set high standards and ensure exceptional IB pedagogical practice so all students reach their academic potential
  • Pastoral Care: to care for the well-being of all Upper School students
  • Universities and Careers: to provide sound advice and assistance with planning post-ECP study and work

We have high academic expectations for our students but couple this with unwavering guidance, rapport and encouragement.

ECP classrooms are incubators of meaningful, compelling learning experiences. Facts and ideas aren’t simply recited; they are vigorously explored and evaluated.
The missions of both the English College and the IB are wholly congruent, focused on not only rigorous pedagogy but also intercultural respect and understanding. We are proud of our thoughtful and informed graduates.

Emily Rankin

Deputy Head (Upper School & Teaching and Learning)
Studying the IB Diploma Programme at the English College teaches students to be independent lifelong learners. It also fosters critical thinking and international mindedness. All of these are valuable attributes for the 21st century workplace.

Stephen Hudson

Head of the IB Diploma Programme; Teacher of Philosophy, History and TOK
At the English College we do our best to ensure that students are given the information and advice that they need to apply to the top universities throughout the world. In addition, we organize yearly work experience programme with top companies in both Prague and London.

Nicolas Hill

Upper School Universities, Careers and Academic Enrichment Manager
Working with students in tutor groups allows us to build relationships in a unique way. The soft skills that students gain through tutor time activities such as discussion, teamwork and presentation skills are central to the IB diploma and are important for future study and careers.
The study of humanity itself, through the lenses of philosophy, history, geography and the social sciences, will open your eyes to the world you live in, and lay the foundation of the world you hope to create.

Head of Humanities Faculty, Seconded to Upper School Tutoring


English College in Prague alumni can be found all over the world. Many are still in the Czech Republic, but others are as far away as the UK, Australia, America, Vietnam and China. Amongst them are artists, designers, academics, musicians, doctors, solicitors, businessmen and women, scientists, charity campaigners and diplomats – many different professions, but the thing they all share is the solid foundation of an ECP education.

Where are they now?

The ECPN is a network for the wider ECP community, providing a way for everyone who has been part of the ECP family over more than twenty years to keep in touch, maintaining a link between the College, all its alumni, their parents, former members of staff and governors. We hope that by broadening and strengthening these links, we will in turn strengthen the ECP so it can continue to fulfil and expand its mission of educating the next generation of young people in Prague. And as our alumni progress in their chosen careers, the ECPN will be there to help put them in touch with others who are in the same profession to offer advice and encouragement so that in another twenty years’ time, there will be successful ECP graduates in senior positions in all areas of Czech life, helping to make their country a better, more equitable and prosperous place.

All ECP students automatically become members of the ECP Network (ECPN) when they leave the school. Our graduates regularly visit the College to advise current students on universities and careers, sharing their experience and offering practical advice, helping to guide the next generation as they enter their adult lives. These visits make a great impression on the students. As one of them said after his visit: “Not only is it helping my old school, it is helping my country.”
