The Stephen Perse Foundation is different. We achieve exceptional exam results without sticking blindly to the syllabus or cramming facts and figures – but what you learn in class is only half the story. What happens on the sports field, in our art and music department, on the stage or in our clubs and societies is just as important. Visit us to find out more.
The Stephen Perse Foundation comprises 6 independent day schools in Cambridge, Madingley and Saffron Walden, UK: The Stephen Perse Pre-preparatory Schools (ages 3 – 7 at both Madingley and Cambridge), Stephen Perse Foundation Junior School (ages 7 – 11), Stephen Perse Foundation Senior School (ages 11 – 16) and The Stephen Perse Sixth Form College (ages 16 – 19). In September 2013 we were joined by Dame Bradbury’s School, Saffron Walden.
Tracing our roots back to 1881 as ‘The Perse School for Girls’, the Stephen Perse Foundation schools are amongst the best in the UK, providing an exceptional education to over 1000 students and sharing a common aim: to foster a love of learning, developing inquiring, reflective, open-minded young people, prepared for the opportunities of the twenty-first century and equipped to play an active role in an increasingly international world.
We will be welcoming boys into the senior school from 2017. We will be teaching them in separate classes for the main academic subjects in what is known as a diamond formation from age nine to 16.
