We are an outstanding, oversubscribed 11-16 non-selective school with a long track record of delivering successful outcomes for students and an inspiring curriculum which help develop young people.

· Attractive semi-rural location close to Cambridge and St Ives

The College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share in this commitment. All staff will be subject to an enhanced check with the DBS.
