Rochester Independent College

Rochester Independent College is a school like no other. Our unique campus and friendly staff make the college feel more like a home than a school. There is no uniform, no bells ring, and everybody is on first-name terms. However, that doesn’t stop Rochester from being in the top 2% in England for student progress at A-level. And it doesn’t stop us preparing our students for success: their hard work and first-class results mean they go on to win places at a wide range of top universities.

“It’s place for individuals. The campus is as unique as the school. The students are a strikingly nice bunch and there’s a lovely air of tolerance and warmth.”

“Having come from a large school in Dubai where the teaching, for the most part, felt very impersonal and uncaring; the teaching at RIC has been fantastic. Small class sizes make things much more personal and it is much easier to address any problems with course content. When I first arrived, I was incredibly worried about how my time here would unfold. I’d never been to a boarding school, having grown up in Italy and the UAE. However, all of my fears were completely unjustified as the boarding staff are a very friendly team and they instantly make you feel comfortable. Overall my experience as a boarder has been a truly positive one and I would recommend Rochester Independent College to any local or international students.”
