Independent Education with a Catholic Ethos for Boys 11-18


Welcome to The Cedars School, independent education with a Catholic ethos for boys aged 11-18. Combining a rigorous academic curriculum with an outstanding personalised tutorial system, our rich and varied co-curricular programme ensures that boys receive an all-round education.
At the heart of the school is the idea of personal growth: helping each boy to acquire the moral, intellectual and social virtues that are so important for a happy and fulfilled life, within a framework of Catholic principles. Our aim is to work in partnership with parents to help each boy grow into the best young man that he can become.
To discuss a Cedars education for your son, please get in touch and I would be delighted to meet you and show you around our wonderful school.

School Prospectus

Qualifications are important but education is about so much more.
Our mission is to nurture and develop the individual child so they may grow to live fulfilled and happy lives. Good character and moral integrity have a positive impact on academic performance so character education underpins our academic programme.


Character is what we make of ourselves and the unique Character Development programme at The Cedars School gives pupils the tools to fulfil their true potential and to become the best possible version of themselves.
The essence of character education at The Cedars lies in equipping pupils with the freedom to make the right choices for the right reasons. This ultimately leads to a sense of purpose and deep personal fulfilment. Lessons in character education help pupils to gain an understanding of their emotions and how they can learn to master them. Our programme fosters the development and study of virtues such as sincerity, hard work, order, cheerfulness, generosity and service to others.
