About Abbey College, Ramsey
Abbey College, Ramsey is located in a small market town, almost half way between Huntingdon and Peterborough and within easy reach of Cambridge and London. The College is set within extensive, historic and beautiful grounds close to the Parish Church of St Thomas A Becket.

We have high aspirations as a College as our 2016 results showed. Our A level and BTEC results placed us the sixth best in Cambridgeshire, outdoing many private schools, and our GCSE results were our highest ever, with a progress 8 figure of 0.21. We are also oversubscribed for the second year in a row this year by over 40% and our attendance is 2% higher than the national averages.
Our College ethos is to ‘Aspire and Challenge’, which means that the College strives to provide strong equal learning opportunities within a broad and balanced curriculum for all students regardless of ability, background or culture. Our values include Being polite, being Equipped for learning, Sticking to and completing the most challenging of tasks and being Tolerant, which we remember as BEST. Our motto is to: ‘challenge mind-sets and raising aspirations’.
