There is much more to school than lessons and exam success, but in academic terms, the success of the education offered at the College is of course measured objectively by external examination boards. Each year we send our leavers to British and French universities, including Oxford, Cambridge and the Sorbonne. Students have also gone on to study in the USA and Spain. An up-to-date list of leavers’ destinations is published here. Chavagnes International College prepares pupils for GCSE, IGCSE, A-levels, Oxford and Cambridge admissions tests, plus various other examinations from the following external bodies:
We also prepare our some of our pupils for the French Diplôme National du Brevet and the Baccalauréat Général.
The College belongs to CISC, the UK-based Catholic Independent Schools Conference, enabling the Headmaster to meet and exchange on best practice with his counterparts in other Catholic schools. We are currently undergoing the compliance procedure to become members of COBIS, the Council of British Independent Schools.
We are inspected every year by AQA, for the conduct of public examinations. We have also been inspected by the French ministry of education and are accountable to the Académie de Nantes.
