Welcome to Queen Emma School

Dear Parents and Visitors,

Queen Emma is the newest Primary School in Cambridge city.  Over the last three years it has become a thriving community school. Our catchment area covers Queen Edith, Morley and the Ridgefield area and our community comprises families from around the world with over 28 languages spoken in the school at the last count.

Queen Emma is in a hard federation with Queen Edith just a 5 minute walk away. It is led by one headteacher, senior leadership team and governing body with representation from both schools. For more information about the benefits of the Federation please visit the Queens’ Federation website.

If you are considering a school for your child I hope I will have the opportunity to meet you in the near future and that if your child is to join us they will have a long and very happy association with the school. We are committed to working in partnership with our parents and our desire is that you feel fully involved in your child’s education and the life of the school.

Yours sincerely,

Caroline Peet

Executive Headteacher
