Communication from the school office

Following the pulse survey regarding communication we thought it would be nice to address feedback in the first instance. Please click here to read correspondence from the school office.


The University of Cambridge Primary School is the first University Training School for primary in the UK.  We are committed to exemplary teaching and learning for children. In our approach to learning, we aim to be creative, bold, free thinking and rigorous. The achievement of our school’s learning outcomes will be underpinned by a commitment to the values of excellence, equity and learner empowerment.

The school will endeavour to put into practice what matters to children and it will also be an innovative professional learning community for teachers. In seeking to provide outstanding education for the children, the school will engage and partner with neighbouring primary schools.

The School

The design of the school is innovative and circular, with an enclosed courtyard in the centre.

The learning and teaching environment has been carefully designed to provide diverse learning spaces, and to enable and promote in-built variety and flexibility. All classrooms will have immediate access to the school grounds in order to facilitate outdoor learning. As we grow we will work with children and other experts to create new opportunities for outdoor and indoor learning. The building facilitates our vision of ‘celebrating the art of the possible’.

The Faculty

The Faculty of Education is one of the largest groups of educational researchers and teacher educators in England.

The wide range of its expertise encompasses all stages of formal education from the early years through to the primary and secondary stages of schooling. It is well-placed, therefore, to make major contributions both to the advancement of knowledge and practice about issues of significance to education and children’s learning.
