The Stephen Perse Foundation is a group of six independent schools 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. You may know us as the school that inspired St Trinian's. We're not quite like that now, but our historical roots are important to our current developments.
We already had a co-educational preprep and sixth form and are developing a diamond model of schooling that has enabled boys to join our Junior school from September 2014 and our Senior school in 2017. In 2013 we merged with the highly successful Dame Bradbury's prep school and nursery in Saffron Walden. Our vision includes equipping our students to face the unknown as well as the known challenges of the future. We achieve exceptional examination results but our focus is never the exam. We base our approach to education around the needs of the individual – put simply, we always start with the child and are committed to breadth of learning all the way through from age three to 18.
Combined with talented students and the opportunities afforded in Cambridge, we have the leading results in the region at GCSE, A Level and International Baccalaureate Diploma, in fact our IB results in 2013 were the joint highest in the world. We were awarded the Sunday Times IB School of the Year in 2010 and 2013 in recognition of the amazing work of our students and teachers. We believe it is right to look first at the student's potential. When applying to study with us you will not simply be sat in a room to answer an examination paper and then have an interview. Rather, we want to talk to you about any school experience so far and see what we can understand about how you work and think. Having lots of knowledge is great but it is not the same as the ability to use information and to think flexibly. It's often said that people need to learn to think outside of the box. We agree.
