Together We Achieve

Welcome to Ely College

an 11-18 Academy located in the beautiful city of Ely.

Ely College has just over 1300 students  and a very committed staff who share my vision of ensuring that every student receives an inspiring education which will equip them with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed beyond the classroom.

Each student is challenged and supported to exceed his or her potential and to truly believe that there are no limitations to success.  We have an unwavering focus on progress, which is underpinned by a strong partnership with parents and the community ensuring that our students are a credit to the College.

Our Values

The academy is sponsored and supported by the Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust (CMAT), which was founded at the 'Outstanding' Swavesey Village College, Cambridgeshire.

Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust (CMAT) exists to provide, support and champion high-quality education at the heart of local communities.

  • Achievement for all

Our House System

The Houses provide crucial support and guidance, and the needs of every student are acknowledged and understood by their tutor and senior tutor. The system enables individual progress to be monitored much more closely and the House is the key focus of the relationship between the academy and families, with siblings joining the same House.


There are lots of great things going on at Ely College. Keep up-to-date with everything with our calender.
