Impington Village College is a non-selective secondary school based on the outskirts of Cambridge.
IVC offers a unique educational experience for its students, and we are fiercely proud of our status as one of the UK’s leading IB World Schools; in 2021 we will become the only state school in the UK to offer the IB Middle Years, Diploma and Careers Programmes, and are committed to delivering the IB’s mission of a ‘world class education’.
We have been ranked in the top 100 state schools (and the highest performing school in East Anglia) two years in a row by the Sunday Times Parent Power, and were crowned the top non-selective International Baccalaureate (IB) provider in the UK in 2020. Student progress at Impington Village College is consistently in the top 5% nationally, and in the first years of the reformed GCSEs, 15% of students have achieved grade 9, with over 40% achieving at least a grade 7. Alongside the academic curriculum, the College promotes outstanding pastoral care and personal wellbeing in its students, and high levels of teaching and support are offered to all.
We are one of few schools in the country to offer an enrichment programme as part of the timetabled curriculum, with students participating in iCAS ‘Impington Creativity, Activity and Service, each Tuesday afternoon. Through iCAS, students have the chance to participate in over sixty experiences, from Pottery to Mandarin, to Fencing and Aikido, and also have the chance to volunteer in the local community; on average over a hundred students a week support community projects in this time.
We encourage international-mindedness in all of our students and promote a sense of global responsibility, focusing on the attributes of the IB Learner Profile not only in the college, but in the context of the wider community.
