The Cedars has a Catholic ethos and places strong emphasis on helping its students to acquire virtues such as self-discipline, a sense of responsibility and a spirit of generous service. There is a lively extra-curricular life with a range of clubs and societies; sport and music are especially popular.
The Cedars is located near the Crystal Palace triangle, a short distance from Crystal Palace and Gypsy Hill stations, and is well served by several bus routes.
