About Ely College

We are delighted to welcome you to Ely College.

Our shared vision is to be a truly great college, a beacon of excellence of which our whole community can be proud.

Since joining the Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust in July 2016, the College has gone from strength to strength. In 2018 we were named ‘Secondary School of the Year’ by the Cambridge Evening News Education Awards and in July 2019, we were delighted that Ofsted judged us to be ‘Good’ with ‘Outstanding leadership and management’. We are proud to have built even further on these successes with our recent GCSE results and our oversubscribed Year 7 intake.

Ely is a great place to live and a vibrant, supportive community. In partnership with our parents and the wider community, we are determined to improve the outcomes, destinations and opportunities for young people in East Cambridgeshire.

Ely College can boast some superb facilities and provides students with a wide range of opportunities for personal and academic development. You can be confident your child will be challenged and supported to secure the best possible outcomes. Our House system and smaller tutor groups help provide and encourage a number of opportunities for personal development as students work towards securing their PLEDGES (Participation, Leadership, Excellence, Diversity, Giving, Environmental and Service) both in and out of lessons.

I know that you want the best for your child, and as a parent myself I appreciate how important communication and confidence in our systems will be to you. Please be assured that we want to hear your views, and we welcome your input. We are very proud of our college, and welcome any chance to show new visitors or prospective students and families around. We think you'll like what you see.
