Comberton Village College was opened in 1960 as a Cambridgeshire Village College.
In 1974, the school became fully comprehensive and, in April 1993, it became grant-maintained. It changed to a Foundation School and has recently become a Foundation School with a Trust: the recently formed Comberton Educational Trust. The school was granted a presumption to open a new sixth form due to its high-performing status. Capital funding from the Learning and Skills Council was secured to build the required new facilities for a sixth form. The sixth form department of the college opened in September 2011. The new sixth form building was opened  by Sir David Bell, permanent secretary for the Department for Education on 14 June 2011.
The Comberton Village College Academy Trust also operates Cambourne Village College which opened in Cambourne in September 2013. In January 2016 Comberton Village College were featured in the ITV news for providing teaching resources to Edlumino in order to support the education of refugees in France
The College retained "Outstanding" status from Ofsted in February 2013. A recent "section 8" monitoring inspection confirmed the excellent standards at the College. In 2014, 77% of GCSE students achieved 5 A*-C grades (including English and Maths) and 66% of all A-level grades were A*-B.
