We are a highly successful, community mixed comprehensive school with Teaching School status in a pleasant rural setting only 5 miles from the centre of Cambridge. We currently have around 1,800 11-18 pupils on roll including our new sixth form centre that opened in September 2011.
Our pupils are well motivated, staff morale is excellent and examination results at KS4 are outstanding: 80% of students attained grades 9 – 4 in Maths and English last academic year and 39% of all grades were A*/A: whilst at A-level 84% of grades were A* - C or 9 - 4. At KS5, the Sixth Form’s results are in the top 5% nationally for student progress made against predictors, with 40% of all grades in 2016 at A*/A grades.
The Science department has and continues to have a strong reputation for the delivery of science at all key stages. At KS4 and KS5, teachers typically teach in their specialists areas, and across all sciences at KS3. The physics team has developed its own schemes of work at all key stages to deliver an inspiring physics curriculum. The science department and physics team is a friendly, collaborative and hard working group of teachers and technicians, who all share a common enthusiasm for science and students’ education.
