The Stephen Perse Foundation is a group of six schools, across five sites in Cambridge, Madingley and Saffron Walden. Founded in 1881, we have always been in the forefront of education developments, providing the best opportunities for our students.
We are a leader within the field of educational innovation but our focus is always on the learning experience of our students. We are a one-to-one iPad school but, as we always say, ‘It's all about the learning, not about the technology'.
At the moment, we are developing a diamond model of schooling to enable boys to move up through our schools. Our Cambridge Junior School admitted boys into year 3 in 2014 and our Senior School will welcome them into year 7 and year 9 in 2018. We will teach core subjects in single-sex groups from year 5 to 11. Our highly successful school in Saffron Walden, Dame Bradbury's, will remain a thriving centre of co-education for ages 3 to 11.
