About our School

The First University Training School for Primary in the UK

A University Training School

The University of Cambridge Primary School is committed to exemplary teaching and learning for children. In its approach to learning, it aims to be creative, bold, free thinking and rigorous. The achievement of the 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 school opened in September 2015. We will grow to become a three-forms of entry primary school educating over 700 children.
