In 1962, St Audrey's School and Ely High School were moved out of the centre of Ely to an extensive site on Downham Road. Shortly after this, a donation from the Catherine Needham Foundation, a local charitable trust set up in memory of Lady Catherine Needham, enabled the establishment of the Needham's County Secondary School. It was renamed in the mid 1970s to City of Ely College, and then subsequently to City of Ely Community College. In 2011 it was renamed Ely College.
