What is education for, if not to help us fulfil our dreams?

Across our six schools, we truly understand what makes each child tick. By thinking of pupils as individuals, with unique hopes, talents and ambitions – we unlock their true potential.

Who we are

The Stephen Perse Foundation brings together six schools under the same ethos – to offer an education which is about educating young people for their future. Whilst we remain committed to academic excellence we understand the importance of an education which values the immeasurable as well as the measurable.  

Our distinctive Learning Wheel places our learners at its core. To stand still is potentially to go backwards and so everyone in our organisation – students, staff and teachers – all look to the future.

    Outer circle

    We prepare young people to blaze a trail in whatever field they choose. They leave us equipped with a breadth of skills, ready to become responsible global citizens.

  • wheel_middle_1

    Learning Segment

    We group our subjects together into six curriculum areas. We teach subjects in an integrated way, because the future belongs to those who can think way beyond narrow subject boundaries.

  • wheel_middle_2

    Learning to think

    Education is not just about imparting knowledge. It’s about teaching young people how to think for themselves: critically, creatively and collaboratively.

  • wheel_inner

    Developing Character

    Fostering a secure bedrock of self-esteem and a sure moral compass is essential preparation for a future in a complex world.

    Our Learners

    Our schools are small enough to ensure that each learner is known. By placing our learners at the centre of our approach, we create an education that allows individuality to flourish.
