Welcome to Comberton Village College & Sixth Form

Thank you for showing an interest in our Sixth Form.

Comberton is a high performing, firmly established sixth form with a strong track record of both academic excellence and student progress. This is reflected in the fact that 87% of A-Level grades this year were at grades A*-C and the current Department for Education league tables show Comberton in the top 5% of all providers nationally for student progress.

With over 400 students from in excess of 25 schools, both national and international, the sixth form has a vibrant atmosphere with a wealth of opportunities, while at the same time being small enough to ensure our students are all known and treated as individuals. If you choose to join us we can help you achieve the highest possible academic outcomes through a combination of outstanding teaching and the close support needed to thrive in a more independent environment. 

I believe we have something special here that offers outstanding Sixth Form education, a judgement that was confirmed by Ofsted inspectors in 2013.

We are committed to excellence in all that we do, recognised by Ofsted's 'Outstanding' judgement of us in February 2013.

Additional support

The transition from school to Sixth Form and beyond is an exciting time and one which brings many challenges. We aim to support and guide students every step of the way to bridge the divide between school, university and employment.

Accademic Tutor Team

When students join us they will be allocated an academic tutor who will have dedicated time both to get to know and to support students during their time at Comberton and also to prepare students for the next step. Students will have regular and formalised one-to-one meetings with their tutor to discuss progress, help solve any problems that arise and agree targets. Tutors will work closely with students, subject teachers and, if appropriate, the Student Support Team. This ensures that they
have a thorough understanding of a students need and can offer you the best advice to help every students to achieve the highest possible levels of success in all areas of Sixth Form life.

Student Support Team

The Sixth Form’s Student Support Team consists of experienced counsellors and youth workers who will liaise closely with the Sixth Form leadership team and academic tutors, as well as accessing help from a range of outside agencies. This ensures that students can receive all the specialist support that may need during the important Sixth Form years.
