International students are an important part of our vibrant Sixth Form community.

Founded by Stephen Perse, a fellow of Gonville & Caius College Cambridge in 1881, The Stephen Perse Foundation is a family of schools educating students from the age of 1-18 in the heart of the University City of Cambridge, UK. The schools have been named the UK's Independent School of the Year' and twice 'International Baccalaureate School of the Year'. In September 2018, Cambridge Centre for Sixth-form Studies (an independent college founded by fellows from Pembroke College, Cambridge University) merged into the Stephen Perse Sixth Form.

The Stephen Perse Sixth Form deliver the best sixth form experience for all students: with an exceptional educational curriculum (achieving both skills and excellent results), guidance and welfare support with the outstanding boarding and excellent academic, English language and welfare support needed for those from overseas. Through a combination of academic education, support and using the best facilities and opportunities that Cambridge has to offer, we achieve outstanding results for our students. Students from overseas and across the UK in our high quality boarding accommodation are nurtured to develop the independence they need to thrive at University and beyond. 

Choose Your Path

We put our students at the heart of everything we do, offering a variety of courses that will suit different learners. We are happy to guide you to the course of study you are best suited to, and we can often tailor our approach to meet your needs. 

At our Sixth Form, we achieve outstanding results because we focus on the individual, running small classes where every student is known and ensuring you have the best possible balance of challenge, support and inspiration. Our leavers pursue inspiring ambitions at leading UK and international universities.

In the classroom, you will become a more independent learner, inspired by brilliant teachers who are passionate about their subjects. You will leave us equipped with the skills, knowledge and confidence to make your mark in the world. If  English isn't your first language, you'll also benefit from specialist English Language tuition
