Abbey College, Abbey Road, Hollow Lane, Ramsey Cambridgeshire PE26 1DG


Ofsted Good GP ColourAbbey College received an overall ‘Good’ rating, with Outstanding features, in our latest Ofsted inspection. 

It is quite a feat in today’s education climate for a school to achieve a Good Ofsted rating as a standalone academy, without joining a multi-academy trust. However, due to the hard work and dedication of our fantastic students, staff, carers, governors and the local community, we have beaten the odds and pulled together to make Abbey College a school we can all be incredibly proud of. I would like to thank everyone who has helped us on this journey for their support of the school so far.
