An independent co-educational school in the centre of Chelmsford for pupils aged 3-11. Nestled in New London Road, the school spans a stunning three-acre site including its Pre-School, Lower School and Upper School buildings, plus facilities for Music and Sport.
For more than 85 years, boys and girls at St Cedd’s School, which is rated ‘Excellent’ by ISI, have been enjoying a quality of education that is among the very best you will find. The school offers pupils the opportunity to aspire and achieve in a caring environment that nurtures talent and supports individual endeavour, whilst preparing children for entry to secondary education.
The school is very proud of its outstanding achievements across the breadth of curriculum offerings, starting with rapid individual progress in its Early Years’ Foundation Stage setting and leading to success in 11+ examinations to grammar schools, and entrance examinations and scholarships to highly selective independent schools.
After extensive refurbishment, the school has recently unveiled its ultra-modern and child-focused Pre-School. This benefits from state-of-the-art technology to enhance the children’s experiences and create an interactive and engaging environment. This EYFS education provision is available to all children from the age of three years old, providing them with an excellent transition into Reception at the school.
In addition to French, Music and PE, which are taught by specialist teachers, St Cedd’s School has its own wonderful Forest School on site which its youngest pupils visit on a regular basis to expand further their outside learning.
St Cedd’s School is proud to offer term-time wrap-around care to aid busy parents. Pupils can attend a Breakfast Club from 07:30 and TLC Club after school until 18:00.
