We are The Stephen Perse Foundation. Extraordinary things happen here every day.

The Stephen Perse Foundation is inspiring. It is a community in which everyone, both students and staff, achieves and makes a contribution every day.

For us, our examination results, brilliant as they are, are not an end in themselves. Instead, they are a small part of a much broader process and experience. That process is all about added value, something we offer and look for in staff as much as in students. It is something in which every journey both begins with and is built around the individual.

A global outlook, a focus on pedagogy, a ground-breaking commitment to digital learning and an emphasis on inspirational learning environments make us different. More than that, our policy of 'looking beyond' underpins education here. Co-curricular learning is integral to what we do, where opportunity and excellence are valued and encouraged.

Our community, led by the Principal, Miss Tricia Kelleher, is made up of a family of six different schools, each with its own Head, comprising 1,100 boys and girls aged 3 to 18, around 150 teaching staff and 145 support staff.

With an Exceptional ISI Inspection report in 2014 and Independent School of the Year 2014/5, we have much to be proud about.

However, we know that education in the twenty-first century is as much about looking forward as looking back. We have just completed a pioneering redevelopment plan, which includes a five-storey sports and learning centre in the heart of Cambridge. The plan has enabled us to admit boys right through the Foundation, with a diamond formation for learning for both boys and girls in the Senior School. It’s a twenty first century vision of single-sex education that we believe is right for the future.
