Ofsted judge Cedars as a "good" school where "students make good progress"
Cedars is a school that is rapidly moving forward and I hope within the pages of this website you will get a flavour of what we have to offer.
Our aim is to combine traditional values with innovative approaches and the school motto of "achieving excellence" sums up our philosophy. In 2013, the school achieved excellent exam results with 81% of Year 11 students achieving 5 or more GCSE passes at A*-C. At A level, the pass rate was 99.5%.
We also aim to help your children develop into responsible, resourceful and resilient citizens. We strive for excellence in terms of exam results but also recognise that there is much more to life and to education than just results. All of our students are offered opportunities to excel and are given the support they need to take advantage of these opportunities. We are very keen to work with parents and carers and recognise that your role is crucial to a successful school. We are also mindful of our central role in the local community and we are always looking to develop new links with partners. We have many students from out of catchment areas and we are always happy to show parents/carers and students around our school.
