Witchford Village College
Witchford Village College is situated on the edge of the village of Witchford, close to the city of Ely in pleasant surroundings. Open countryside encompasses the site, with fine views over the fens to Ely Cathedral.
The College is set in extensive grounds amidst lawns, gardens and mature trees. The site provides facilities for a wide range of activity and as a specialist Sports College, many of them are sporting.
The pleasant, modern buildings include a wide range of general teaching rooms, a large Library/Resource Centre, an Assembly Hall with Dining annex, six Science Laboratories, a Sports Halls and Gymnasium and specialist rooms for Drama, Music, Home Economics and Information and Communication Technology (ICT). In quite recent years over £3 million has been spent on building extensions at the College because of growth in student numbers. Further spending is improving our environment. New areas include a Design and Technology area, Art and Design rooms, a Ceramics studio, a display exhibition gallery and new ICT suites.
Continued growth in demand for student places at the College has meant that an additional English teaching block containing six classrooms, new Special Needs Accommodation, an additional Laboratory and a new Art and Design room were opened as we approached the millennium.
In September 2004 a fitness studio was opened. A major development in September 2006 was the complete upgrading of four ICT suites and the installation of Interactive Whiteboards in over 25 classrooms.
