One pupil at Chavagnes International College, an international Catholic boarding school for boys hailed as one of the 100 best schools in the world , is blazing a new trail in university matriculation. Its pupils routinely sit the French baccalaureate and English A-levels at the same time, but one of its pupils, 18-year-old Iwo Wojcik from Poland, is aiming to gain the French baccalaureate, UK A-levels and the Polish ‘Matura’ all in one go.
Ambitious Iwo, a keen trumpeter, actor and footballer, has already secured an offer from Oriel College, Oxford to read French this coming autumn.
Last year, Ambroise Julien Laferrière was the first French alumnus of Chavagnes to take up a place at the University of Buckingham, the university which has been top or near top of the National Student Survey (NSS) in student satisfaction every year since 2006. Ambroise picked up UK qualifications in French, Spanish, Religious Studies and Maths plus the French Baccalaureate in Economic Sciences at Chavagnes International College before beginning his degree course in International Business Management.
