Welcome to Queen Edith School

Dear Parents and Visitors,

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. We hope you will find all the information you require, but if you have questions or would like to arrange a visit to the school, please contact the school office.

Queen Edith is a large thriving primary school and nursery situated in the south of Cambridge city. We have a diverse catchment area and have many families from abroad (speaking 28 languages at the last count!).

Queen Edith is partnered in a federation with Queen Emma, which is a 5 minute walk away. It is led by one headteacher, senior leadership team and governing body with representation from both schools. For more information about the benefits of the Federation please visit the Queens’ Federation website.

If you are considering a school for your child I hope I will have the opportunity to meet you in the near future and that if your child is to join us they will have a long and very happy association with the school. We are committed to working in partnership with our parents and our desire is that you feel fully involved in your child’s education and the life of the school.

Yours sincerely,

Caroline Peet

Executive Headteacher

 Careers Afternoon - April 2014

Learning Saturday - January 2014

In January, we had another exciting Family Learning Day where we travelled 'Around the World in a Saturday'. During the day, over 600 children and parents from across the Federation came to enjoy art, cooking, dance, drama, singing, music and much more from all across the globe.

Thank you to all those volunteers who gave up their time to make the day such a success!

Take a look at some of the photos from the day.

Musicians' Concert


On the 20th May, twenty-one of Queen Edith's most talented musicians performed in an after school concert. With performers ranging from year 3 to year 6, parents and friends thoroughly enjoyed hearing the results of their hard work. In case you were unable to attend or would like to enjoy it again click here to watch the videos.
