To develop an educational programme and environment which nurtures boys and girls, who will endeavour to be good citizens and distinguish themselves in all walks of life.
Children come to us as toddlers. They will leave school as young adults, their personalities and potential largely determined by their experiences in school. The primary school years are perhaps the most significant. By the age of eleven the child has learnt how to read and has grasped the rudiments of number and quantity; but more than that she should have learnt to love reading, to be fascinated by numbers, and to enjoy finding out things in answer to her own questions. At Cambridge Primary School we believe that a successful child is one who wants to learn and that exploration is easily the best way to learn.
What we want to see is the child in pursuit of knowledge not knowledge in pursuit of the child.
– George Bernard Shaw
The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows.
