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.

Economics is offered at both A Level and IB Higher and Standard Level in the sixth-form and

the department contributes to the enrichment programme in Years 10 and 11 by offering

Economics related courses that would be of interest to non-economists.

The department follows the A Level AQA 7136 syllabus and the IB Economics Specification

First Examination 2013.
