Why Impington Village College?
This is a great time to consider joining Impington Village College. The College has continued to improve, innovate and deliver success over recent years and as a result secured an excellent OFSTED report in November 2019, with Impington International College (IIC), our unique sixth form, once again recognised for its outstanding provision. IB pass rates at IIC have been in excess of 95% in the last four years, with over 95% of students securing their first choice place at university and nearly 50% of students going on to top Russell group universities. IIC has been ranked as the top performing non-selective IB World State School in the UK for the last three years. Average GCSE Progress 8 scores have been consistently in excess of +0.5 and in terms of attainment, approximately 45% of students achieve the top grades (7-9/A-A*) and 15% achieve grade 9s, despite our very comprehensive intake.
Progress and attainment at IVC has been in the top 10% of schools nationally for the last seven years and has been recognised by the Schools, Students and Teachers Association (SSAT) which works with high performing schools nationally. As a result IVC is now firmly established as one of the strongest educational establishments in the region, was in the top 3 non-selective state schools in the country in the Sunday Times and Parent Power School league tables and was voted their school of year for East Anglia in 2020.
Our successes have enabled us to focus our efforts on developing the culture and experience at Impington for the benefit of staff and students, whilst retaining our high standards and expectations for all. Our focus on wellbeing has had a tangible impact on the experience of colleagues at the college and the new enrichment programme (iCAS) and curriculum model implemented in 2018 has had the same effect for students. In 2019 we were one of only 34 schools in the UK to reach the standards to receive the Carnegie Gold Award for Mental Health and Wellbeing in schools and in 2021 we were one of eight schools named as a Flexible Working Ambassador School, leading the way in developing innovative approaches to flexible working. This is also a hugely exciting time to join the College as we redevelop our KS3 curriculum and become the first state school in the UK to offer the IB Middle Years, Diploma and Career Programmes.
We have a highly efficient, effective and dynamic leadership team, a growing and influential team of Lead Practitioners and Middle Leaders and a Professional Development Programme that is second to none. IVC is a place where you will be valued and supported and have the opportunity to achieve success, enjoy your vocation and be invested in to become an outstanding practitioner and/or leader.
We look forward to welcoming you to Impington Village College, and would love to show you around our wonderful site and facilities. To arrange a tour or meeting with the Principal, please contact us.
