Being a Church School
There are 4,644 Church of England schools in the UK. St Paul’s is a Voluntary Aided school which means we are a local authority maintained school with a foundation in the Church of England. Responsibility for the school is shared between the local authority and the governing body and we are supported by the Diocese of Ely.

We value and enjoy our relationship with St Paul's Church on Hills Road. We are able to hold services for the whole school and their families at the end of each term. The vicar and other members of the church community regularly come into school to lead collective worship, meet with staff and pupils and contribute to the life of the school in a variety of ways.
We are one of four schools who are provided with facilities and targeted support by the The Church Schools of Cambridge.
The Church Schools of Cambridge (the Trust) is a registered charity established in 1703 to provide schooling with a Christian ethos for children in Cambridge. The Trust provides additional targeted funding for specific school projects, along with making other relevant grants to the wider community of Cambridge and providing a range of RE-related workshops and resources. We currently have seven Foundation Governors who meet every half term, four are appointed by Church Schools of Cambridge.

For Lent we created this display in the entrance hall. Each class was given the challenge of exploring a different part of the Easter story, Mrs Towler Brown then cleverly combined them into this meaningful display.
