our core values 
Our core values are: 
  • excellence and creativity in teaching and learning 
  • encouraging personal and social responsibility 
  • celebrating individuality and diversity

These principles define our school community and are at the heart of all we do. In following these ideals, we aim to achieve the highest standards in an all-round education. Our pupils are individuals with a myriad of interests and talents, and this school enables them to thrive.

notice of withdrawal 

A full term’s notice of intention to withdraw a pupil from the Stephen Perse Foundation at the end of a term must be given in writing to the Head of Junior School. If such notice is not given, the full term’s fees for the following term are liable to be paid. A full term’s notice to discontinue individual music or speech lessons is also required, on the same conditions.

valuables policy 
The School accepts no responsibility for loss or damage to personal property or for the safekeeping of any valuables brought to school. 

Any property of value, such as musical instruments, watches, fountain pens, calculators, mobile phones and bicycles, should be clearly named. Please note that all musical instruments, which are used in school, must be insured by parents for accidental damage, loss or theft. This applies to instruments which are hired from the School, as well as pupils’ own instruments. 

Pupils are responsible for the safekeeping of any money brought to school. Any sum in excess of £3 which, exceptionally, has to be brought should be entrusted to the Form Teacher or the Junior School Office until the pupil leaves at the end of the day.

online systems 
Payment for educational visits must be made through the online payment system. The Foundation reserves the right to make other items exclusively available through the online payment system. 

The normal method of communication with parents is via School Post and email, unless there are exceptional circumstances which prevent this from being possible. 

End of year reports on pupil progress are distributed electronically via a secure website.
