Students and teachers at Bassingbourn Village College have a good reason to celebrate after the school was ranked among the top nine per cent in the country.

Principal Duncan Cooper said: “The report not only shows an improving picture across the board, but also that we are doing a fantastic job in comparison to all other secondary schools.

“It really does reflect the hard work and commitment of students, staff and governors at the college.”
