For us, the achievements of our students – whether academic, beyond the classroom or in later life – are by far the most rewarding aspect of what we do.

But wider recognition is important too. It shows that other educators in the UK and further afield value our approach to education.

Independent School of the Year

We have been named Independent School of the Year at the TES Independent School Awards. In the same year, we also collected an award for Outstanding Strategic Initiative.

“Deserving of the Independent School of the Year accolade for its overall vision and momentum.”

International Baccalaureate School of the Year

We are two-time winners of this coveted, annual award from the Sunday Times. The award recognises the exceptional results of our 6th Form students in the International Baccalaureate.

This award highlights how we achieve academic excellence, not by focusing on results, but by thinking about our students as individuals. We look at each student in the round and understand them.

"Students at the Stephen Perse 6th Form College in Cambridge are world-class achievers. Their exceptional academic results this year mean that the school is not only ranked first in Britain but also joint first in the world for the international baccalaureate (IB) diploma."

Parent Power 

In 2017, we were ranked top of the East Anglia region, in the Sunday Times' Parent Power list. We also ranked 18 out of 2,000 schools around the UK. The Sunday Times based our top position on our fantastic GCSE, A Level and IB results and although ordinarily we do not agree with the sentiment behind league tables, this position is testament to the hard work and commitment of our students.
