1400 pupils enrolled
Age range
11 to 16

Bottisham is 5 miles East of Cambridge, just off the A14 trunk road. We are a highly-ambitious, highly-innovative and over-subscribed comprehensive school, based in the heart of rural East Cambridgeshire and we take great pride in our vision: to inspire, to care for and to enrich the lives of every student within our community. The pupil admission number is 300 for September 2022 and last year we received 455 applications of which 281 were first preference, meaning we are currently a school of 1410 students.

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. In addition to our academic rigour, our relationship-driven approach permeates throughout all aspects of college life, from the maths classroom to the sports field, from the music room to the ICT suite and from the library to the auditorium, this is a college where we recognise the transformative power of positive relationships. Students will only succeed if they are happy and we make every effort to achieve this.

The college was opened in 1937, and remains a focal point for village life and a community ethos: a comprehensive adult education programme, a community sports centre and extensive provision for the arts and physical education as well as a well developed enrichment programme for all. In essence, the facilities are the gateway to connecting all our catchment communities. Henry Morris, the founding father of the Village College ideal, believed that schools should be the pulse of the local community, open to all and offering an attractive stimulating environment. As our college grows, we shall never lose sight of the Henry Morris ideal: community is at the heart of all we do.
