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.

Sadly, we have learnt that ex colleague, Jim Hunt, passed away on Tuesday 21 May, aged 71.
Jim was at Cedars for 26 years and commenced in 1973 as a CDT teacher. Following the school’s relocation from the old Cedars site in the high street the same year, Jim oversaw the building of the then new CDT workshops.
In 1996, Jim project-managed the new 4.2 million pound build which included block 4 and the Raven Theatre. Jim was also the exams officer until he retired in 1999.
His funeral is on Wednesday 5 June at 12 noon at St Giles Church, Totternhoe.
