SYSTEMS AND CONNECTIVITY OUTAGE
Recovery from our IT system outages is underway.
Our telephone service has now been restored and so we will be withdrawing the contingency contact numbers from service. Please contact us on our usual number of 01353 652818. We are still experiencing difficulties with access to email and other IT systems.
We hope to very shortly be able to issue students with new user credentials to allow them to restore their own access to email, and online services including Teams and My BishopLaney. Deadlines for work relying on system access will be extended.

Thank you for taking an interest in our Sixth Form College.
Students are provided with a clear and focused selection of study programmmes to tie in with their future aspirations. Offering a dedicated business mentor from the local community, every course the Bishop Laney Sixth Form will offer has a clear professional relevance to it, giving students the widest possible range of future options; be that university, a career or an apprenticeship.
As a Bishop Laney Sixth Form student, you will be encouraged to engage in planned work-related learning to include relevant work-experience, as well as receiving impartial careers advice and guidance. The enrichment programme set forth by Soham and Ely will continue to grow and provides students with a variety of volunteering, physical and leadership opportunities. In the past students have had the opportunity to build new classrooms in Kenya, experience Auschwitz and tour New York and Washington DC.
Soham Village College and Ely College are delighted to be working in partnership to ensure that there is excellent provision on offer in our community. We are very proud of the achievements of past students in recent years. Most of students have gone on to their first choices of university for further study, or to their chosen places of work, either as apprentices or employees. These achievements are a tribute to their positive approach, aided by good teaching and close pastoral support and monitoring. Bishop Laney Sixth Form hopes to build on this by incorporating close links with business partners and mentors. Above all, every student is treated as an individual and provided with a wide range of opportunities to develop as a well-rounded person.
We look forward to welcoming applications for September but before then we can offer you a wide range of support with your progression choices. Please take a look at our new prospectus and the Bishop Laney website to get more information about this exciting new offer; come along to our Virtual Open Evening, or contact us to arrange an individual visit.
We look forward to welcoming you to our friendly, forward thinking sixth form.
