Stephen Perse Sixth Form

The Stephen Perse Sixth Form is based at a separate campus in Bateman St, close to the Senior School and to the centre of Cambridge. Here students have the benefit of both day and full boarding options. Students join us directly from the Stephen Perse Senior School, from schools across Cambridge and East Anglia, and from schools throughout the UK as well as from abroad. This results in a dynamic co-educational learning environment where students are encouraged towards success at university and in future careers with social responsibility and a global outlook. 

"Live and learn with us in the heart of Cambridge. We get to know each student as an individual, offering exactly the right balance of challenge, support and inspiration…"
