Being a Church School

We are currently developing this page.

There are 4,644 Church of England schools . 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. We are supported by the Diocese of Ely.


The Church of England Vision for education is “ for the good of the whole community”


Educating for wisdom, knowledge and skills: enabling discipline, confidence and delight in seeking wisdom and knowledge, and developing talents in all areas of life.


Educating for hope and aspiration: enabling healing, repair and renewal, coping wisely when things go wrong, opening horizons and guiding people into ways of fulfilling them.


Educating for community and living well together: a core focus on relationships, participation in communities and the qualities of character that enable people to flourish together.


Educating for dignity and respect: the basic principle of respect for the value and preciousness of each person, treating each person as a unique individual of inherent worth.

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 7 Foundation Governors who meet every half term. 4 are appointed by Church Schools of Cambridge.
