AN EXCEPTIONAL COLLEGE FOR AN EXCEPTIONAL COMMUNITY

Welcome to Ely College   

an 11-18 Academy located in the beautiful city of Ely.

Ely College and Bishop Laney Sixth Form has  over 1300 students and a deeply committed staff with a shared vision to deliver an exceptional school for our exceptional community. We want every student to receive an inspiring education, equipping them with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed beyond the classroom.

We are proud of the achievements of our students, and of the provision on offer.  We hope that you find this website a useful source of information about our work, and look forward to welcoming you to the college.

 

Our Values

The academy is sponsored and supported by the Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust (CMAT), which was founded at the 'Outstanding' Swavesey Village College, Cambridgeshire.

Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust (CMAT) exists to provide, support and champion high-quality education at the heart of local communities.

  • Achievement for all
  • Valuing People
  • A high quality learning environment
  • The pursuit of excellence
  • Extending the boundaries of learning

Our House System

The Houses provide crucial support and guidance, and the needs of every student are acknowledged and understood by their tutor and senior tutor. The system enables individual progress to be monitored much more closely and the House is the key focus of the relationship between the academy and families, with siblings joining the same House.

WOW! https://t.co/c6HYx71Mjh

  • This morning we had a quick assembly with our Y10 students ahead of Mock Exam season. It's been a tough year but we're here to support them as they navigate their GCSEs & continue to reach their highest potential. These are some of our expectations on how they can best prepare✏ https://t.co/EZHBJ649yd

  • ... up their projects ahead of summer; we even have a Year 7 student already smashing GOLD in her first year at Ely College. OUTSTANDING! Amazing effort by all! Keep working towards GOLD and maybe we will soon look into launching a Platinum #PLEDGES award! https://t.co/qPdUHtJdsR

  • It's fantastic to look back over some the recent GOLD #PLEDGES awards. The hard work & commitment our students show, both IN & OUTSIDE of the classroom amazes even us. We still hear about some of the good deeds our Y11s are up too. Our Y10/9 student ambassadors are busy wrapping https://t.co/Wx4CluVIEU
