How to get there:

Postcode (for Sat Nav): CB24 9LX

Impington Village College is handily located relatively close to two train stations on the fast line from London Kings Cross/London Liverpool Street (Cambridge which is approx 5 miles away and Waterbeach which is a village approx. 4 miles).  It is also just one mile from Junction 32 (B1049) of the A14. Exit and head north on the B1049 past the Holiday Inn and over the Guided Busway bridge next to Histon Football Club.  Once past the football club entrance, there is a pedestrian crossing and a turning right onto New Road.  Take this and proceed along to the College site (approx. 300 metres). There is parking available on the entrance from New Road signposted ‘Impington Sports Centre’ (which is owned and managed by the College).  The Sports Centre Conference Room which is hosting the HTRT Conference is located next to the Sports Centre Reception.  If you find yourself on the main College site, please ask a member of staff to direct you to this location rather than (main) Reception.

    Hello. I am reading this as a parent so forgive me if this question is an obvious one! The policies are aimed at supporting children thrive and succeed. What does a thriving a successful child look like? What do they do? Do they have lots of a stars? Do they go on to higher education? Are they the best they can be and if so, what is the ‘best’ that you hope they are aiming for?
    Many thanks
