Life is an adventure and we help our boys and girls embrace it with confidence, independence and joy.

In Madingley, by gently sowing the seeds of critical thinking and encouraging creative, reflective learning, we establish life-long learning habits.


From the day you turn 1

We welcome children from the day they turn three at our picturesque Victorian schoolhouse in Madingley.

Our site at Rosedale House in the heart of Cambridge also offers outstanding education from the term your child turns three.

Dame Bradbury's, our school nestled in the heart of Saffron Walden, welcomes children in the term that they turn one.

Visit us

Pre prepWe want to make sure that your child is ready to enjoy all the opportunities that we offer so, before we confirm a place, we'll invite them to spend a morning of afternoon with us.

Come along for a visit with our Head where you can see the school and how we learn and play together. Your child will get the chance to join in with our pupils who will become their classmates and friends.

This is always an informal process so that your child can conquer any nerves and become enthusiastic about taking the first steps out of the home and into the start of their education and the wider world. To enquire about visiting one of our sites, please enquire below.
