School named as one of the region’s best

A Cambridgeshire school has been named the region’s top non-selective secondary school.

Impington Village College, near Cambridge, was selected for the East Anglia title by the Sunday Times Parent Power 2021 rankings.

Nationally, it has been ranked the third highest non-selective school in the UK.

The Parent Power list is a survey of the country’s best schools and ranks 2,000 high-achieving UK schools by their published exam results.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, this year’s list was based on grades from 2019.

Principal Victoria Hearn said: “In the midst of such a turbulent year, I’m thrilled that Impington Village College continues to be recognised by the Sunday Times Parent Power as a completely comprehensive and inclusive college.

“Alongside our academic curriculum, our unique enrichment programme supports students’ personal development and wellbeing and offers them the chance to engage in a range of extra-curricular experiences, all of which are important factors when it comes to a young person’s educational experience.

Last year, the college was named East Anglian Secondary School of the Year in the list.
