There has never been a more exhilarating time to join us at Cedars Upper School! We are thrilled to announce that our recent Ofsted inspection in 2023 has resulted in an overall ‘Good’ grading , with our Sixth Form earning an ‘Outstanding’ grading, of which we are very proud. We take pride in our continuous pursuit of excellence and the exceptional educational environment we provide for our 1200 students.

At Cedars, we have a strong reputation as a popular and high-performing school.

Come and be a part of our extraordinary team at Cedars Upper School, where positivity, growth, and achievement flourish.
