About St Aubyn's School
St Aubyn’s School is a independent preparatory establishment based in Woodford Green, Redbridge. Founded in 1884 as a boarding school for boys, the school has been co-educational since 1995. Pupils are taught between the ages of 3-13, with approximately 300 boys and 220 girls currently on the school roll. The motto of St Aubyn’s is"fortiter, fideliter, feliciter", which translates as "bravely, faithfully, happily". During the Second World War the school was used as an army barracks, and today it is one of only two primaries nationwide with its own cadet corps programme.
Values and vision
Although St Aubyn’s is now non-denominational, it is still inspired by its Christian origins to create an environment of inclusivity and understanding. High aspirations and clear expectations are key reasons for the school’s consistent academic success.
St Aubyn’s wishes its pupils to excel both in and out of the classroom. As well as cadets, the school offers a wide range of sporting teams and facilities to build teamwork and keep pupils active. International excursions to locations such as Italy and Turkey are organised as part of the Comenius programme. There is specialist focus on the performing arts of music, dance, and drama, and productions of all kinds are staged in St Aubyn’s expansive Performing Arts Centre.
“The pupils' personal development and the school’s pastoral care are both excellent. This can be seen in pupils’ strong social awareness and the outstanding respect for other beliefs and cultures.”
