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.
In February 2011, Comberton Village College became an academy, operated by The Cam Academy Trust. The trust also operates Cambourne Village College which opened in Cambourne in September 2013, and Melbourn Village College in Melbourn, St Peter's School, Hartford Infant and Junior Schools in Huntingdon, Gamlingay First School and Jeavons Wood Primary School in Cambourne. The Gamlingay Village College joined the trust in September 2017.
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.
