We are an independent sixth form college based in Cambridge that offers the very best education and boarding for international and domestic students. We teach over 360 students from 34 countries. They are united by their ambition: to enter one of the UK's best universities.
We have developed and maintained an outstanding record of academic success. Our students' exceptional A level pass rates mean that we have been consistently placed at the top of college league tables since 1997. Our college community has grown significantly during this time and we now have 340 students from over 30 countries who are taught and supported by 90 members of staff.
During this growth our educational ethos has remained very clear: outstanding achievement for all. Our educational offering has changed since 1994, from being initially designed for A level retaking students to now being a GCSE, Foundation and A level college specialising in meeting the needs of international students
Passionate, Driven Ambitious.
Three words that sum up Abbey College Cambridge perfectly. We have a passion to provide a first class British education with a global outlook. We are driven to give the best teaching and support to all students, including those for whom English is not their first language. And we are ambitious for our students, helping them to achieve exceptional academic and personal success.
As Cambridge's Outstanding International College, we are experts in teaching and in supporting both UK and international students, and we do so in a community that is energised by the love of learning. It is a place where students feel at home, where they make friends from all over the world, share unforgettable experiences and go on to achieve amazing things together.
Our students exam results illustrate this, with the A Level A* and A pass rate being above 60% for each of the past eleven years, compared to an average of 25% in other UK schools. Our students are driven by a desire to attend one of the UK's best universities. That desire, coupled with the excellent academic progress they make, results in over one quarter of our A Level students progressing to the UK's top five universities every year. If you join us you will study with students who will progress to Oxford or Cambridge University, Imperial College, LSE and UCL. That is simply a fact of life at Abbey Cambridge. If you feel that you wish to study with such passionate, driven and ambitious students, and to be one yourself, then Abbey Cambridge may be just what you are looking for.
