Cambourne Village College is a secondary school that opened in Cambourne, Cambridgeshire, England in 2013. It is a free school, and is part of a federation with Comberton Village College operating within the Comberton Academy Trust.[1]

Cambourne Village College had an initial intake of Year 7 pupils (11-12 year-olds) in September 2013, but is expanding each year with a new Year 7 intake to become a full secondary school. In September 2014 it took in a second group of year 7s. The school's primary catchment area is Cambourne, and largely admits pupils from Jeavons Wood Primary School, Monkfield Park Primary School, Hardwick "Blue School" and The Vine Inter-Church School in Cambourne.[2]

The school is located at a purpose-built campus in the north-west of Lower Cambourne. The school has the capacity to accommodate 750 pupils and 100 staff when fully occupied, and is also be available for use by the local community, in common with the Village College tradition in Cambridgeshire.[3] It is the first secondary school to be established in Cambourne, and a primary school is currently being built on the same site to replace a temporary campus of Hardwick Community Primary School.
