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



Evelyn Glennie and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
Our optional half-term holiday homework was to write a letter to someone who inspires us, and invite them in to school. Mrs Swift also wrote some letters to people who she thought would inspire the children. Evelyn Glennie received a letter, but was too busy to visit Queen Edith - so we were invited to the Corn Exchange to see her rehearsing with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. The first children to hand their optional homework letters in, as well as our children who wear hearing aids, were invited to see Evelyn Glennie's rehearsal. The children learnt about how Evelyn takes her shoes off to feel the vibrations from the music that she cannot hear. They enjoyed listening to the orchestra and watching the conductor, as well as watching Evelyn play the xylophone incredibly quickly! Thank you to all children who wrote letters to people who inspire them. All the letters are now in the post and we await the replies.
