Impington International College students secure places at Russell Group and Oxbridge universities

On Monday 6 July, over 90 International Baccalaureate (IB) students from Impington International College received their Diploma Programme (DP) and Career-related Programme (CP) results, securing places at Russell Group and Oxbridge universities, including: the University of Cambridge, Queen Mary University, University of Warwick, London School of Economics, University of Durham and King’s College London. This year’s cohort will be going on to study a range of degree courses, including English and European Law, Mathematics, Marine Biology, Sport and Exercise Science and Drama, Theatre and Performance.

Students studying the CP at the College secured places at world renowned performance schools, including London Contemporary Dance School, Urdang Academy and Rose Bruford College, to pursue a career in theatre.

Achieving a total point score of 42, Year 13 student, Fabiola Rubuano, secured her place at one of the world’s most prestigious universities, the University of Cambridge. Fabiola will begin her studies in Human, Social, and Political Sciences at the University in October. Commenting on the achievement, Fabiola said: “It is impossible to describe how happy I am. I’m so thankful for all of my teachers support through these two amazing years, I have enjoyed every moment of my time at sixth form. I’m incredibly proud of how, despite this strange time, I had been able to achieve my dream.”

Impington International College has been offering the IB curriculum for 30 years and was one of the very first state schools in the UK to do so. This year’s student cohort achieved a 98% pass rate for the DP and 100% pass rate for the CP, with an average DP score of 34 points (out of a possible 45), beating the international average of 29.90. 12% of these students scored 40 points and above, 7% higher than the international average.

Jo Sale, Vice Principal at Impington International College, said: “We are delighted for all of our students receiving their results this week and share our heartfelt congratulations with all. The past few months have been incredibly challenging, and it is an absolute testament to the students that they have pulled through this time together and remained so positive, setting a wonderful example to the other year groups and the local community. I would like to thank all of the parents and teachers for supporting the students during this time and, although I will miss them all, I am so thrilled to watch all of our students mature into young adults and leave us to pursue their dreams. This is an exciting time, and I am proud that we have been able to help our cohort reach their full potential.”
