The School

Cambourne Village College is a vibrant building built in 2013 with excellent facilities which provide a perfect environment in which to learn and work. Its outlook and ethos are fully in line with the tradition of Village Colleges established in line with the vision of Henry Morris for community-based schooling. Cambourne Village College has, from the outset, been at the heart of its community and is heavily used by many clubs and organisations, not just by our students during the designated school day.

The Staff

Our staff are highly skilled, highly committed, innovative, mutually supportive and sociable. Joining Cambourne Village College represents a remarkable and exciting professional opportunity. It offers the chance to help to establish a growing school whilst working within a wider high-quality Academy Trust which gives excellent possibilities for professional and career development. Staff morale is extremely high, evidenced in our Investors in People report: ‘People describe high levels of camaraderie and teamwork, also the opportunity to influence change. There is shared motivation to achieve, and people are loyal and enthusiastic about the Academy. There is a culture of praise and recognition, which people buy in to’.  In our most recent staff survey (January 2021), 89% of all staff agreed or strongly agreed with the statement: "I am proud to work at Cambourne Village College."

Please note that we do not accept CVs and incomplete application forms will be rejected.

The Governing Body is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. An Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check (DBS) will be carried out for all successful candidates.
