CCSS has two central teaching sites and five boarding residences. All are located right in the heart of Cambridge within minutes of each other and of Cambridge City Centre (by foot or bike, but a little longer in a car!)
Our campus reflects our style and ethos: high quality, purposeful and a million miles away from a traditional school environment. Our collegiate set-up encourages our students to make best use of first class teaching facilities, of quiet and well-equipped study rooms and of modern and well-appointed social spaces.
Our teaching buildings include specialist laboratories for sciences, well-equipped, bright study rooms and a full suite for the visual arts. Our IT provision is second to none, with superfast broadband operating over hard-wired and WiFi networks and uniquely generous download limits.
Our boarding houses provide 130 attractive, fully supported single-rooms, all of a high standard and all a great “home from home”. Most of our rooms have private bathroom facilities and there is a good choice of different styles to suit individual tastes.
Boarding houses also benefit from superfast broadband that supports links with home and the best access to academic resources.
All students are encouraged to experience the wide range of sports, arts, cultural and leisure activities. We team up with key our cultural associates when this adds value for our students. For example we share sporting facilities with the University of Cambridge: our home football pitch is at Pembroke College where students experience high-quality facilities as well as an insight into university life.
Cambridge has so much to offer and our teaching and residential sites are within minutes of indoor tennis courts, top-class sports pitches, an Olympic-sized swimming pool and sports halls.
