Our Ethos

Main body content

Chelsea Independent College is an exciting place to study

It is where students from over 30 different countries come to London to study under first-class teachers who help them to attain top grades at GCSE and A-Level and to enter leading universities, including Oxford and Cambridge. Our British students, who come to CIC to maximise their grade performance, complement this international mix.

CIC is also somewhere you can be yourself; there is a strong culture of inclusiveness and openness that runs right the way through the college, and which promotes freedom of individual ambition and expression. We want our students to leave us as confident, culturally aware young men and women who are self-assured in regard to their ability yet humble and, crucially, flexible when it comes to approaching their careers in a rapidly changing world.

London is not only a great world city, it is also a centre of excellence in education, home to some of the finest schools and universities anywhere in the world. We make full use of our central London location, both to support our students' studies and to provide a full range of extra-curricular activities which enable them to develop a range of other interests, a very important consideration when applying to leading universities.
