New building marks new academic year at Impington International College

Students at Impington International College in Cambridge are reaping the benefits of a brand new Sixth Form building which has opened to accommodate the 150 students joining the College for the 2021/2022 academic year; the largest Year 12 cohort in the last two years.

 

The new building has three large classrooms and a fully equipped seminar room to support students’ learning and independent study. Students also benefit from an air-conditioned common room, where they can enjoy breakfast from 8:15am each morning, and an outdoor area that provides a dedicated space for socialising and relaxation between lessons. Students can access the building from their own entrance separate to the main College.

 

Johanna Sale, Vice Principal at Impington International College, said: “The opening of our new building provides our Sixth Form students with an exclusive space, giving them greater independence and enhancing their learning experience with us.

 

While 2021 has been a testing year, we have been celebrating a number of milestones. Alongside our 30th anniversary of offering the International Baccalaureate, we are thrilled to welcome a large cohort of Year 12 students, who have joined us on a local, national and international scale. As we head into our new academic year, I cannot wait to see them thrive within the new space.”

 

Year 13 student, Gethin W., who has been at the College since Year 7, said: “It’s great to be back at the College and to be studying in a new building just for us Sixth Form students. The new space has breathed new life into our learning and I appreciate the fact that it takes less time to get around in between lessons. The new building has definitely surpassed all of our expectations.”
