The Cambridge Prep Experience for 8th and 9th grade students is housed in Peterhouse, the oldest college in Cambridge, founded by Hugo de Balsham, in 1284. Cambridge Prep students choose one subject per two-week session from the 17 available courses, all of which privilege experiential learning, using the city as a classroom. Some of our most popular courses are Molecular Biology, Espionage, Medical Science, and Terrorism and Modern Politics.
Students enjoy breakfast and dinner in the oldest hall in continuous use in the University, which was built in 1286. During their time on the program, students have access to all the major attractions in Cambridge and its environs. They immerse themselves in local life and culture, visiting the University’s world-famous colleges and collections, such as King’s, the Fitzwilliam Museum, and the Museum of Archeology. They attend a Cambridge United football match, go punting on the River Cam, and walk to the Grantchester Meadows. Every day there is something for all tastes and interests.
