Chelsea Independent College

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.


You can look forward to being taught by tutors who will inspire you to achieve excellent examination results and gain entrance to the top universities. However it’s equally important to us that you develop into a person who is the articulate, confident, with a strong sense of social responsibility, ready for university and the wider world.We are keen to give you not just academic support but also the highest standard of pastoral care. As soon as you arrive at the college, you will meet your personal tutor, who will be the main point of contact for your parents and guardians, and all of my staff are looking forward very much to getting to know you.We also offer a range of opportunities beyond the classroom, for example in music, drama, debating and sport, so you’ll be kept busy from the moment you arrive.
