About us

Cambridge Centre for Sixth-form is an established and leading independent sixth-form college offering high quality one and two year GCSE and A-level courses.

Over the last 35 years CCSS has built an impressive reputation for stimulating, success focussed education, preparing students for university and for life.

CCSS is located in the very heart of academic Cambridge, surrounded by colleges of the University of Cambridge.

Our small class sizes and first class tuition enable achievement and encourage ambition and self-confidence. With both day and boarding places and a broad international student mix, UK and overseas students thrive and succeed.

International Students are offered an introduction to the UK education system via our International Summer School programme or our Academic Foundation Course, or may choose to join the full academic GCSE and A level courses.

UK students can also experience a “taster” of life at CCSS, by joining in either our Easter Revision Courses or a short Summer Course – both of which are designed to assist students from independent or state schools gain those extra marks that make the difference in grades.

Welcome to CCSS… inspiring education. We look forward to meeting you.
