What makes us different?

'A unique and spectacular learning environment'

Hinchingbrooke hosts one of the largest comprehensive school sixth form in Cambridgeshire. It is exceptionally located in historic Hinchingbrooke House, a grade 1 listed building, once home to the Cromwell Family and the Earls of Sandwich.

Our sixth form has high progression rates to Russell Group Universities, and has had notable success in recent years with both Oxbridge and medical school applicants.

Recent significant expansion of our sixth form is largely the result of an increase in applicants from all over the county, with over 25% who have joined us from other schools. We are also pleased to be a partner school for the European Foundation (EF) programme welcoming a number of students from the European Union to study with us over a 12 month period. We pride ourselves in giving our external students a particularly warm welcome.

In recent years there has been considerable investment in the refurbishment of the House and its facilities, including designated private study facilities and upgraded social spaces, enhancing the learning environment for our sixth form students.

Our aims

  • To enable all of our students to realise their full academic potential, whatever their ability, enabling them to take the next step on their learning journey.
  • To provide tailor made guidance, which meets the needs of each individual student.
  • To nurture the holistic development of all students, empowering them to make their way in the world with confidence.

We hope you will consider joining us.

Charlie Fordham, Head of Sixth Form.
