Welcome to Queen Edith School

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 2015

We know that many parents are now making the very important decision about which school to send their child to next year.  All applications for Reception 2015 have to reach the Local Authority by 15th January 2015.  Further information can be found on the admissions website.

Parents are most welcome to visit Queen Edith and Queen Emma on the following mornings when the programme is arranged so they can, if they wish, tour both schools and hear the talk at just one.  It is helpful to know numbers so please contact the school office to let them know if you plan to attend.  However, you are also most welcome to turn up on the day.

The last week of term was a busy time for our KS1 children. They worked extremely hard on their Christmas performance and put on a wonderful show. I hope those of you who could make it enjoyed it as much as we did.

The children have shared some of their feelings about the performance with us.

“I liked singing Herod and all the songs” Daniel G

“I enjoyed being a shepherd and saying my lines” Emily

 “Marching like a Roman soldier was so much fun!” Karl

 “My orange pillow case was really great to wear” Isla

 “It was really good and I really liked the purple angel costumes” Bella

 “I Loved the songs and watching my friends say their lines” Lukas

 “I really liked doing the actions for the song Herod” Charlotte
