Bottisham is 5 miles East of Cambridge, just off the A14 trunk road. The Village College is a eight form-entry mixed 11-16 comprehensive school and serves twenty one villages in the area bordering Cambridge and east to Newmarket. The school is heavily oversubscribed with 1160 students on roll, rising to 1500 in next 5 years. We are committed to providing an outstanding education to all of our students, enabling them to develop into mature, independent young people, ready to take their place in society. We have extremely high expectations and work with commitment and dedication to enable all students to have the opportunity to achieve their full potential, both academically and socially. The school community values all our staff, students, parents and carers and their contribution to our successes and achievements. The College was opened in 1937 as the second of the Cambridgeshire Village Colleges. These were the forerunners of community education in this country and are still committed to lifelong learning in its widest sense. The vision of their founder, Henry Morris, was that schools should be at the heart of their communities, open to all and that they should offer an attractive and stimulating environment for learning. Bottisham Village College continues to aspire to this vision.
