The Perse Prep School, Cambridge

The Perse School is one of the most successful independent day schools in the country. Founded in 1615, Perse provides its mixed cohort with an education that’s both challenging and inspiring. Its prep department is equally reputable, occupying spacious parkland on Trumpington Road in Cambridge. 
We are committed to helping your child develop as a confident, smiling, interesting and interested individual.

Within this vibrant and energetic school, every child will develop their academic curiosity and a lifelong love of learning.

Children thrive on challenges both in and outside the classroom, with great emphasis placed on developing breadth and balance through first-rate sport, clubs, music, art, drama and outdoor pursuits.
Self-confidence and happiness are prerequisites to academic and extra-curricular success which is why we focus so much on a supportive community for children, parents and staff; this is characterised by mutual respect, reassurance and encouragement.

We work hard to strike the right balance between work and play, comfort and challenge, instruction and discovery, rules and common sense, questioning and humility, and guidance and independence.
