We are a very welcoming and highly successful school, one in which all staff are valued and all contribute to our strong caring ethos.  Pupils are at the centre of all that we do but we can only succeed when all professionals work together, collaboratively and supportively, to ensure a positive, safe and calm learning environment in which all pupils can thrive.  We ensure our staff have the resources, development and opportunities to fulfil their roles and responsibilities.  Staff wellbeing is vital to our success and we consider workload and the working environment very carefully.

Sawston Village College is an inclusive, comprehensive 11-16 academy, set on a picturesque open campus, a few miles south of the culturally iconic and aspirational city of Cambridge.  It was the first purpose-built Village College in England and we are proud of the fact that it is still heralded as a model for community education and remains true to Henry Morris’ founding principles. Many members of the local community visit each week to participate in learning, sporting or leisure activities.  We are also proud to be a founding member of the Anglian Learning Trust, a family of like-minded schools serving over 5500 pupils from ages 3-19 in this region.  The Trust affords us opportunities to learn from each other, prosper from outstanding leadership development and build strong professional networks to achieve ambitious objectives.

Our focus is the achievement and wellbeing of our 1169 pupils within a school culture based on community, ambition, respect and endeavour.  In 2022, the College achieved above national averages at all levels including 63% gaining grade 5+ in English and Maths, 44% at grade 7 or above across all subjects and a progress score of +0.4.  In 2019, we were in the highest quintile for all measures. Pupils secure their preferred post-16 pathway having achieved grades significantly well above average.  Academic success, of course, is only one measure and, as an Artsmark accredited school, we are equally proud of our extensive extra-curricular offer as well as our aim to help all pupils leave with confidence, enriched experiences and hope for the future.  Our code of conduct demands that our pupils also understand and appreciate the need for kindness, humility, politeness and good grace.
