For us, the achievements of our students – whether academic, beyond the classroom or in later life – are by far the most rewarding aspect of what we do.

But wider recognition is important too. It shows that other educators in the UK and further afield value our approach to education.

Independent School of the Year

We were named Independent School of the Year at the 2014 TES Independent School Awards. In the same year, we also collected an award for Outstanding Strategic Initiative.

“Deserving of the Independent School of the Year accolade for its overall vision and momentum.”

Our innovative work has since been recognised once more by the TES Independent School Awards, with 2016 seeing us shortlisted for Creative School of the Year. 

International Baccalaureate School of the Year

We are two-time winners of this coveted, annual award from the Sunday Times. The award recognises the exceptional results of our Sixth Form students in the International Baccalaureate.

This award highlights how we achieve academic excellence, not by focusing on results, but by thinking about our students as individuals. We look at each student in the round and understand them.

"Students at the Stephen Perse Sixth Form in Cambridge are world-class achievers. Their exceptional academic results this year mean that the school is not only ranked first in Britain but also joint first in the world for the international baccalaureate (IB) diploma."
