Independent School for children aged 3 to 11 years with Nursery, Pre-Prep and Prep all of the same school site



Welcome to The Phoenix School Cambridge.

The school where every pupil's individuality shines and their academic potential is realised.


The Phoenix provides our pupils with the highest standard of education at all stages in a lively, stimulating environment. We believe that every child matters and that they are entitled to have a personalised learning plan to enable them to achieve their full potential. Due to our small class sizes, we have time to go over and above the National Curriculum and we also offer dance, drama, speech and French lessons taught by specialised teachers.

We believe it is essential to instil self-confidence, independence and self-discipline in our children and this is achieved with a strong pastoral system supporting a carefully planned curriculum and access to challenging extension activities.

Many of our children are bi-lingual and we have an excellent track record of achieving spoken and written English fluency in children who join us with limited English language skills. We have specialist staff available for children who require extra support or extension programmes.

We are delighted to welcome parent visits for those who wish to see our Nursery, Pre-Prep and Prep school in action. Our pupils are always proud to show others their skills and abilities and to share their love of the Phoenix School Cambridge.
