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 moto of "achieving excellence" sums up our philosophy. In 2012, the school achieved excellent exam results with 68% of Year 11 students achieving 5 or more GCSE passes at A*-C including English and Maths. At A level, the pass rate was 98%.
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.

Please note that Anglia Battlefields have contacted me and asked for a new departure time of 04.00 This is 15 minutes earlier than the original published departure time! Please arrive at school between 03.45 and 03.55 so that we can get everyone on board and be away by 04.00. I apologise for the now even earlier start!
From September 2013 we intend to extend our current EO3 bus service which operates between the school and Eggington, Tilsworth, Stanbridge and Billington.
The new service will include stops in Dunstable, Houghton Regis and Sandhills.
Please use the link for timetable information
There will be charges for these new stops but we are keen to keep these as low as possible and so need to know how many additional students will be using this new service. If you intend to access the stops in Dunstable, Houghton Regis and Sandhills or know of other families who would be interested in using them please email Mrs Freer on firstname.lastname@example.org
If you currently access the EO3 service there will be no new charges.
