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

Children in nursery have been enjoying learning about spring and Easter.
We have drawn pictures of our families, made mother’s day cards, cakes and seed sticks and enjoyed singing a new song to mummies at our celebrations.  Click here to see more.

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.                                            

Year 2 
Year 2 had a great trip to Duxford. We saw different models of Spitfire and discussed the design ideas. We also found out a little more about The Battle of Britain. We loved the Blackbird and found out why this plane was famous - what an incredible shape too! Click here to see more.

Year 3 
The sun has been shining and Year 3 seized the opportunity to have a rounders tournament outside! All four houses played against each other and had a super time practising their battling, bowling and fielding skills. Click here to see more.                                                                   

Year 4 
Year 4 had a great opportunity to learn something this term that could potentially save someone’s life. Dan from St John Ambulance trained us how to do an initial check, how to put a patient in the recovery position, and how to perform CPR. Click here  to see more. 

Year 5 
Year 5 thoroughly enjoyed Activities Week. They took part in a week of cross curricular activities, which has promoted their team-working, communication and problem solving skills. Some of the activities included: Paralympics games, archery, drama, STOMP workshop, swimming, fire lighting, sushi making and foot golf. Click here to see more.

Year 6
In the last few weeks of term, all 3 Year 6 classes have had a whole day’s training in First Aid. We believe that this is hugely important in equipping them with the confidence and skills to help those who need it as well as the potential to save a life – a very powerful skill to learn before they leave us! Click here to see more.
