Statement of Boarding Principles and Practice
The College’s aim is to enable every individual to make the most of their abilities and to fulfil their potential, and it is accepted that much of what is valuable in education takes place outside of the classroom. The College therefore aims to provide a very full educational experience in the context of full boarding, including homestay. Such a programme can often make great demands on the pupils and staff involved so the College is committed to the highest levels of pastoral care.

The city of Cambridge
Cambridge is known for its historic university, where Charles Darwin (a naturalist and geologist famous for his theory of evolution), Alan Turing (mathematician and founder of modern computing) and David Attenborough (broadcaster and naturalist) all studied.
The University of Cambridge is the second-oldest university in the UK and is consistently ranked within the top five universities in world, making the city an inspiring place for your studies.
More recently, Cambridge has become a global centre for the science and technology industries. The area is now home to leading companies, such as Microsoft Research, ARM and AstraZenica, as well as Addenbrookes Hospital, the world-renowned teaching hospital. Your enrichment programme gives you the opportunity to visit some of these innovative environments to see theory in action.
Bellerbys College Cambridge is located opposite the beautiful Botanic Gardens and just a fifteen-minute walk from the city centre.
Students love studying in Cambridge because:
- It’s just 50 minutes from London by train, so you can visit the Science Museum
- You have the opportunity to visit the University of Cambridge Engineering Department and Cambridge Science Park
- You can cross the Mathematical Bridge, the first bridge built using mathematical principles
- You can try the popular activity of ‘punting’, which is a type of boating
- The city is close to beautiful countryside and historic towns, which are perfect areas for walking and cycling
