Description:
Rochester Independent College (RIC) is a United Kingdom independent school in Rochester, Kent. It was established in 1984. It offers places for 280 full time day and boarding students from the local area, elsewhere in the UK and all around the world including the USA, Thailand, Nigeria, China, Russia and Germany.

The College has a distinctive ethos. No bells ring, there are no uniforms and students and teachers are on first name terms. The average class size is 8. While offering a complete secondary education for students from the age of 11 RIC specialises in A level courses leading to university entry.

A 2011 Adam Smith Institute report said "Rochester Independent College stands out as a notable ‘alternative’ exception for its informal ethos and relaxed learning environment, though rigorous teaching and a strong focus on preparation for assessment, recognised in a recent outstanding Ofsted report, suggest that it might be better characterised as akin to a successful Swedish Free School.".

The artist, poet and musician Billy Childish is a Visiting Lecturer at the College.

Accreditation

Rochester Independent College is affiliated to the Independent Schools Council (ISC) and a member of the Independent Schools Association (ISA)
