A message from the Headteacher  Mrs Horn:

At Cromwell we aim to strive for constant improvement.

We have a vibrant learning community enabling students to flourish academically and socially. Our central ethos of care, respect for the needs of others, courtesy and a warm community feel provides an atmosphere where our students can make the very best of their talents to achieve success and are inspired to fulfil their potential.

We believe you will find:

  • a calm purposeful environment, a thirst for learning and values where everyone matters.
  • a College where pupils are given every opportunity to succeed in the widest sense, achieving the best possible outcomes To that end we have: 
  • the whole school community: governors and staff, parents/carers and young people all working together; using expertise, experience and motivation
  • pupils making a positive contribution to their communities
  • pupils who are successful learners, developing the skills and attitudes that will equip them for life

To that end we have: 

  • staff who are professionally equipped and dedicated to enabling every student to succeed inspire, support and challenge all in their care.
  • a broad and balanced curriculum offering our students the potential to achieve their personal best and secure academic success.
  • a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities enable students to broaden their horizons, stimulate their creative talents and skills and try new activities.
  • pupil participation in the organisation of our school.  We encourage this through the School Council, Post 16 student voice, roles such as prefects, ambassadors, mentors, librarians and participation in staff interviews. This helps to ensure our students are well prepared for adult membership of our rapidly changing society.

CROMWELL COMMUNITY COLLEGE UPDATE

24 March 2020

Dear Parents and Carers

 

Following Government guidance, Cromwell Community College is now closed until further notice except for children of Key Workers and Vulnerable children who are unable to work from home. It is important to stress that this provision is only to be used if there is not suitable support for your child at home. Please click here for further information and eligibility criteria. If you need to use this provision, please contact office@cromwell.cambs.sch.uk. We have no further information or guidance other than what is in the public domain about when the college will re-open but will keep you updated.

 

Home Learning

On Friday 20 March you will have been emailed with schedule of work for each subject for your child to complete over the next two weeks. This can also be found under the 'Home Learning During Closure' tab on the Home page. As an initial two-week measure, the following will happen:

 

Monday 23 March – Friday 3 April

  • Where possible, pupils should follow their normal school timetabled lessons using the resources available and provided. Pupils can access their emails using www.office.com and Doddle by logging in with their normal school username and password – more details to follow.  Following this timetable will enable them to continue their learning while also providing a structure and purpose to their day to help keep a healthy body and mind.
  • Year 11 and 13 pupils are still expected to complete the work provided.
  • Staff will be available via email, to answer questions and provide additional work with contact details provided in the email.
  • Please do not come onto the school site unless instructed to do so.
  • Queries about subject work should be directed to the subject teacher, general queries should be directed to office@cromwell.cambs.sch.uk and IT issues, such as logins, to mcourtman@cromwell.cambs.sch.uk.

 

We will be in touch at a later date with further details regarding work after Easter.

Yours sincerely
