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

Reception
We have been basing our activities around the story of ‘The Three Little Pigs’. Children have been creating their own houses for the pigs using different materials. They have been exploring  materials and listening to instruments made from wood and metal. Click here to see more.                                        



Year 1
We have been thinking about our senses. We went into the courtyard and thought about what we could see, hear, feel and smell. Click here to see more.

The sun has been shining and Year 3 seized the opportunity to have a rounders tournament outside!
