Rochester Independent College (England)
A place for individuals
Flexibility is the watchword here. Whether you are looking for 1 year GCSE or A level course, the opportunity to retake exams or a chance to focus exclusively on the Creative Arts or preparing for medical school, RIC offers it. Not only that, pupils can start at different points in the school year, into any year group with any subject combination. Class sizes average 8 so the style of teaching leans more towards university tutorials. The personalised attention means excellent results with many securing places at top art colleges, and medical schools as well as Oxford and Cambridge. Everyone is on first-name terms and with no uniform the atmosphere is relaxed, friendly and purposeful.
