The school is owned by the Dean and Chapter of St Paul’s Cathedral; its governing body is made up of five Canons and seven lay members, who are chaired by the Dean. St Paul's can trace its origins back to the 12th century and it existed for several centuries solely to educate the cathedral choristers. It has been co-educational since 2002.
Values and vision
St Paul’s Cathedral School aims to instil a love of learning through a broad curriculum, set within a Christian community. It seeks to give each child the chance to develop intellectually, personally, socially, physically, culturally and spiritually.
The preparatory school encourages close partnerships with parents and aims to foster positive relationships, promoting the values of justice, tolerance, love, honesty, respect, service and trust.
“Pupils’ achievements are good overall and fulfil the school’s aim of enabling children to reach their potential. They articulate their ideas confidently and coherently, demonstrate excellent reading skills, listen attentively and ask perceptive questions.”
"Their performance in numeracy is strong and they develop a good level of competence in information and communication technology (ICT). Their physical skills develop strongly through a well-balanced physical activities programme."
