Many thanks for taking an interest in our College! It is an immensely exciting time to be a member of the Ely College community. Over just the last year, we have been recognised by the government as one of England’s 100 best improving schools in terms of the progress students make; we have successfully bid for the next £4.2m phase of our capital development; and we have been rated as a ‘Good’ and improving school by Ofsted.
Schools are obviously very important places for the development of communication skills.
Children are born to explore, to investigate, to delve. It's what they do.
Education is important for its own sake, but it is also critical for future employability
An holistic approach to education has a profoundly positive impact on academic achievement
Creativity is widely recognised as one of the most important skills for life in the 21st Century
If students are to engage in ‘deeper’ learning, they will need new forms of enriched and ‘deeper’ support
Achievement is good. Many more students are taking and succeeding at traditional academic subjects. The progress that students make from Year 7 to Year 11 has improved in both English and mathematics.
