Impington International College students have earned places at Oxbridge and Russell Group universities after securing strong International Baccalaureate (IB) results.

More than 90 students at the college received their diploma programme (DP) and career-related programme (CP) results this week, without having sat the usual exams.

They achieved a 98 per cent pass rate for the DP and 100 per cent pass rate for the CP.

The average DP score was 34 points out of a possible 45, beating the international average of 29.90. Some 12 per cent of Impington’s students scored 40 points and above, seven per cent higher than the international average.

They have secured places at universities including Cambridge, Queen Mary, Warwick, the London School of Economics, Durham and King’s College London, and will study a broad range of degree courses between them, 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 renowned performance schools, including London Contemporary Dance School, Urdang Academy and Rose Bruford College, to pursue a career in theatre.

Year 13 student Fabiola Rubuano achieved a total point score of 42 and will read human, social and political sciences at the University of Cambridge in October.

Fabiola said: “It is impossible to describe how happy I am. I'm so thankful for all of my teacher’s 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 was one of the first state schools in the UK to offer the IB curriculum some 30 years ago.

Vice principal Jo Sale 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.”
