What the school says...

We specialise in offering GCSE and A-Levels. We offer close to 30 subjects at A-Level, as well as the International Foundation Programme.

In 2018, we joined the Stephen Perse Foundation, a collective of seven schools across Cambridge, Madingley and Saffron Walden.

Our teachers are experts in their field and experienced at getting students to university. As a result, we have students going onto Russell Group universities each year.

Our class sizes are very small, with each class having an average of six students in each.

Our teaching buildings are located in central Cambridge, as are our safe and comfortable boarding houses.

We're a friendly college with a small number of students from around 30 nationalities, as well as our British students.

Please note: Independent schools frequently offer IGCSEs or other qualifications alongside or as an alternative to GCSE. The DfE does not record performance data for these exams so independent school GCSE data is frequently misleading; parents should check the results with the schools.

Special Education Needs

We specialise in years 11,12,13. Therefore we expect the students we take to have backgrounds and capabilities which offer reasonable prospects of success in GCSE, AS, A2 exams. However, our small class size (maximum 8), the one-to-one element in all our sixth-from teaching and a pastoral system based on individual rather than form-group work, enable us to give a lot of support to students with difficulties. We can't however help in cases where behaviour or impairment is such that the student's needs make it significantly less feasible to provide good education to each member of a teaching group.
