The year 2011 is the 20th year for which Impington International Sixth Form has offered the International Baccalaureate Diploma programme. We are a government funded, inclusive sixth form in which students of a range of abilities and talents can achieve. This was shown in our 100% pass-rate for the May examination period 2011.
The word ‘international’ is not in the sixth form name just because we have the IB, but it is because our sixth form is ‘international’ in that students join us from the local area of Cambridge, wider regions of the UK and from approximately 15 other countries. Such a rich mix of cultural perspectives enables our students to develop a sense of their international identity and take their place in the global forum.
Impington International Sixth Form offers a wide range of IB subjects, from classics to environmental systems and societies, psychology to Japanese ab initio. This year we are delighted to introduce IB Human Rights. The inclusion of this course has developed from two decades of active commitment to the concept of human rights in the international arena. Both our curriculum and our CAS activities demonstrate the opportunities that all of our students have to engage practically with these ideas, for example in our link with MenelikEducation and schools in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo and with Peacechild India in Bangalore. Students lead activities ranging from teaching and construction to coaching sports.
The Performance School continues to attract large numbers of extremely talented artists, many of whom proceed to schools and training for professional performance. Impington is a specialist IB Dance centre. We look forward to adding IB Sport, Exercise and Health Science course to our range. This subject will be based in the new Impington Sports complex with fitness suite and pool.
