We have a rich and creative curriculum which chooses from the best GCSE and IGCSEs and also includes A Level and International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme in our award winning Sixth Form College (Sunday Times IB School of the Year 2010 & 2013).

Located in Cambridge, in a purpose-built ‘university-style’ setting, Stephen Perse Sixth Form College excels in preparing young people for life in an ever-changing, global and digital world. 

Our academic results are exceptional – but for us, education is not just about A*grades or top International Baccalaureate® scores. It’s about strength of character, a sense of social responsibility, and intellectual discovery. 

Through small class sizes, a supportive tutorial system, integral opportunities in sport, music, art and drama, plus bespoke enrichment and guidance programmes, we inspire confidence, push boundaries and unlock the potential in every student. 

As part of the innovative Stephen Perse Foundation, our education is about character – about who you become. Find out more
