Cambourne Village School

The Award for School of the Year – Making a Difference

Cambridge, Cambridgeshire

Cambourne Village College, part of The Cam Academy Trust, opened in 2013 with just 132 pupils. From the outset, their vision was to provide the community of Cambourne with a secondary school of excellence. Growing by one cohort per year, they now have a roll of 960 and a full complement of skilful and committed teaching and support staff.

Over the past five years, they have been recognised by Ofsted as ‘Outstanding’, and gained Teaching School and Leading Edge designations. They are a friendly and inclusive school and enjoy wonderful support from a wide range of partners. More than thirty clubs and societies use the school facilities, which are open for community hire seven days a week. They are proud to serve the community of Cambourne and work hard to make Cambourne proud of them.
