The final months for our Year 11 cohort are action-packed. Here are details of some key time periods and events:

  • Study leave

Study leave will commence on Monday 16th May. At this point, students will only need to come to school for their examinations, but we will provide facilities for them to use should they wish to be here at other times. The Dining Hall will be available for students to use if they are in school outside examination times.

In order to ensure smooth operation of the school, as well as to safeguard our students, the following expectations will be in place:

  1. Students should arrive at least 15 minutes before the scheduled start time of each examination.
  2. Students arriving for a morning examination should enter school in the normal way. They will be registered upon arrival at the examination venue.
  3. Students arriving for an afternoon examination can enter school through the main reception or through the perimeter fence in the Sports Centre car park. They will be registered upon arrival at the examination venue.
  4. When students are in school for a period of time before, after or between examinations, they will need to remain on the school site, signing a register in the Dining Hall and remaining there unless they are attending a revision session. Students should not be wandering the site or using the school field during normal lesson time.
  5. Students are not required to wear school uniform, but do need to wear clothes that are comfortable and appropriate for a school environment.

This page includes the complete timetable of Summer exams. Individual timetables giving dates, times and locations of examinations will be given to students in due course.

As you will know, adjustments have been made to the structure and content of some examinations due to the impact of the pandemic. A summary of these adjustments can be found here. 

Teachers will be communicating a summary of these adjustments to students in lessons in the coming weeks.

  • Leavers’ Ball

Bottisham Village College Leavers’ Ball

We are delighted to invite your child to the Bottisham Village College Leavers’ Ball on Friday 1 July 2022, 7:00-11:00 pm.

Guests will enter the venue through the community entrance on Lode Road, next to the College library. The evening’s entertainment will take place on the Principal’s lawn which will be home to a marquee hired with funds raised by the Friends of Bottisham Village College. Transport should pull up at the bottom of the walkway, where guests will be welcomed by staff and escorted up the red carpet if required.

In order to avoid congestion on Lode Road, we request that parents/carers and friends wishing to view the arrival of our students park their cars in the College car parks and stand well back from the road.

Tickets cost £25.00 and payments should be made using Wisepay (under General Payments) by Friday 17 June 2022.

Tickets are only available to students who attend the College. However, all are welcome to join us in watching guests arrive.

It is important that students and their parents/carers understand and recognise our insistence that the event remains alcohol and drug free. Should staff feel that students have consumed such substances before the event, they will be refused entry and parents will be asked to collect them immediately.

The evening is always an exceptional event; it is one of the highlights of the Bottisham calendar and a superb way to end students’ time at the College.

We look forward to welcoming your child to our Leavers’ Ball.

  • Friends of BVC Quiz Night

The cost of hiring the marquee for the Leavers’ Ball is met by the Friends of Bottisham Village College, our Parent Teacher Association. They fundraise tirelessly to make this event possible and also to provide financial support for other resources and learning opportunities.

Please support the Friends by forming a team and joining us for the Great Summer Quiz. You can reserve tickets by emailing
