Year 8 to 9 Options Book
We are delighted to release our new publication, ‘Choices’, which is our guide for Year 8 parents to the curriculum at Key Stage 4. As a Leadership Team we have worked to transform the curriculum offer for our students, which we will be launching ready for September 2018. This is part of our commitment to ensuring that our students have a truly excellent experience at the College, as well as making outstanding progress. Our new curriculum has the College’s values of ‘inclusive, inspirational and international’ at its heart, and draws heavily on the best elements of the International Baccalaureate, which is delivered in our outstanding sixth form. An IB World School, we are one of just 68 state schools in the UK with this accolade and we believe totally in the IB’s mission to develop a love of learning and to create a better world through education.
We are particularly excited about the introduction of the IVC Core, which sits at the very heart of our new curriculum, throughout years 7-11. As part of this, we are launching iCAS (Impington Creativity, Activity and Service), a new, timetabled enrichment programme that all our students (from year 7 up into the sixth form) will participate in on a Wednesday afternoon. Delivered by our staff, this programme will include a huge range of activities, from Italian, pottery, Aikido, Greek Philosophy and Creative Writing to Sports Leadership, Peer Mentoring and Archaeology.
We will be rolling out details of our new curriculum at Parents’ Evenings throughout the year. If you would like more information about the curriculum, please contact Victoria Hearn, Vice Principal.
