Cambourne is a new settlement, eight miles west of Cambridge. It is already a significant community and construction of Cambourne West, a further 2400 new homes with associated facilities, is under way on land adjacent to our campus.

Cambourne Village College opened as a new 11-16 Academy and Free School of the Cam Academy Trust (formerly the Comberton Academy Trust) in September 2013. The College opened with six forms of Year 7 pupils and grew by one new intake each year, our fourth intake reaching Year 11 in September 2020. CamVC was initially built for a roll of 750 students, but has expanded rapidly to accommodate nine forms of entry, with a current roll of approximately 1230. Our intake is truly comprehensive, with 30% of the dwellings in Cambourne comprising social housing whilst the remainder is mainly mixed, new, privately-owned houses. We are now working with the Local Authority to expand our accommodation to admit up to 1650 students (11 forms of entry) in our 11-16 school. As the logical sequence to our rapid and successful growth, planning is also underway to open a 350 place sixth form, with 175 students in each of Years 12 and 13, both effective from 2024. Students in our current Year 9 will be first to access this provision. Building plans are well developed and our Heads of Departments. The school has rapidly gained the support of the local community and co-operates strongly with its four catchment primary schools, all situated in Cambourne.
