Welcome to CCSS!
Cambridge Centre for Sixth-form Studies is one of the UK's leading independent sixth-form colleges, specialising in A-Level courses over one and two years and GCSE courses over one year. We offer a wide range of subjects (close to 30 A-Levels) and students are able to choose their own combination.
Our well-equipped teaching buildings are within easy reach of our Boarding Houses and the historic yet vibrant city centre of Cambridge. By train, Cambridge is less than 1 hour from central London and London Stansted airport.
Our teachers are not only experts in their subjects, but also very experienced at preparing students for university. As a result, almost all our students go onto university after CCSS, with a good number each year going to Oxbridge and Russell Group universities.
The average number of students in each of our our classes is just six. This happily supports our individual approach to learning, building a relationship of mutual respect between students and staff and developing self-confidence within each student.
Personal tutors develop effective relationships with teachers and parents. They meet each of their students weekly to talk over academic matters, such as time management, work output and preparing the strongest possible university application, as well as any issues of personal concern for the student.
We have around 170 students aged from 15 to 21. Approximately 130 of them stay in our boarding accommodation and the remainder are day students from a 50 mile radius. We have a range of boarding options available, which incorporate our five Boarding Houses. All are staffed 24/7 by residential house managers. We also offer homestay.
We benefit from an extensive enrichment programme, and with our links in Cambridge and with the University of Cambridge, there are clubs and interest groups for almost anything you can think of!
