Chelsea Independent College offers a variety of programmes starting in January 2019, allowing students the opportunity to begin an A-Level, GCSE or Pre A-Level course outside of the standard UK school year. We recognise that some academic years around the world finish in December, and also that some families arrive in London after the start of term in September. With that in mind, these bespoke courses, taught in small groups, allow students the chance to progress to university within their desired timeframe, without the need for unwanted gaps on their academic record.

Our flexibility is your opportunity

CIC is committed to delivering tailored, high quality academic programmes alongside outstanding co-curricular opportunities and the highest levels of pastoral care. As an international institution teaching students from over 30 countries, we strive to accommodate the needs of both domestic and international students, who in turn progress to a wide array of global university options to read courses ranging from Computer Science to Economics to Graphic Design. In most cases, students studying January start programmes have access to the full and growing list of subjects available at CIC, so no ambitions are off limits. Students will expand their knowledge under the expert guidance of our highly experienced teachers and personal tutors, in a friendly learning environment with small class sizes complemented by regular exam practice sessions.


Courses available to start in January 2019 are:

18-month A-Level Programme

For students wishing to study a full A-Level programme in order to progress to university in September 2020 (ages 16-18)

18-month GCSE Programme

For students wishing to obtain top GSCE results and progress to A-Levels in September 2020 (ages 14-16)

Pre A-Level Programme

For students whose first language is not English and who have not studied within the UK system before, this introductory course will help them adapt to life in the UK, build on existing subject knowledge and prepare for the commencement of A-Level study in September 2019 (ages 15-17)
