Welcome to Queen Edith School

Dear Parents and Visitors,

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

We have been enjoying "Dear Zoo" by Rod Campbell and have been playing animal games in groups, designing animals on the whiteboard, printing, painting, drawing and making models. Click here to see more.

Children have been very busy making new friends, learning new routines, exploring their new classes and finding out about how they learn. Click here to see more.

Year 3 
Year 3 had lots of fun creating their own Greek style clay pot in D&T. Before starting, we spent some time observing different Greek pots and looked at their shapes and designs. Click here to see more.                                                                   

Year 4 
In Maths, we tackled a problem from the nrich maths website (nrich.maths.org). We had cards with numbers 1 to 15 printed on them. We then had to lay 7 of them in a row, with rules about their sums, like “The numbers on the first two cards add to 15”. Click here  to see more. 

Year 5 
Year 5 recently spent time learning all about the challenges of cartography when they were tasked with creating a map of Egypt. Some people even managed to compare the scale of Egypt to the scale of Britain! They discovered how to navigate an atlas!  Click here to see more.

Year 6 
House Tournament
Archie – "It was tough but we persevered and got through it together."
