Student experience

Impington Village College is incredibly proud to be an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School. As part of our commitment to preparing our students for the IB Diploma Programme (DP) and Career-related Programme (CP) that they can go on to study at our sixth form, Impington International College, we have taken some of the key elements of the IB, in line with our core values, to provide a totally unique curriculum experience for our students.

At the end of Year 11, Impington Village College students will be examined in their GCSE subjects. However, the IVC Core curriculum offers much more than just the qualifications that students receive, and represents our commitment to delivering the College’s vision and mission.

Student leadership

The success of our curriculum is demonstrated through more than just student outcomes; it was designed to ensure our students are effectively prepared for life beyond the College and are happy, healthy young people. We regularly seek student feedback on the quality of provision at the College, both inside and outside of the classroom. This includes focus groups, our Student Leadership Team (iSLT), and via online surveys. The impeccable conduct of our students, their engagement in College life and their excellent attendance, also evidences the positive impact that our curriculum is having.


iCASXtra is IVC’s extra-curricular programme. Like iCAS its purpose is to enable students to enhance their personal and interpersonal development by learning through experience. It provides opportunities for self-determination and collaboration with others, fostering a sense of accomplishment and enjoyment from their work. Our iCAS programme will contain a range of Creativity, Activity and Service experiences which will be published in September 2021 and starting the w/c 13 September 2021. These experiences will run Period 0s and 6s on Monday, Wednesday and Thursdays, with some experiences being offered at lunchtime.
