Welcome from the head

Welcome to St Cedd's School, an independent co-educational school in Chelmsford, for pupils aged 3-11. For more than 85 years, boys and girls at St Cedd's School have been enjoying a quality of education that is among the very best you will find both locally and nationally. 

We offer pupils the opportunity to aspire and achieve in a caring environment that nurtures talent and supports individual endeavour whilst also developing a sense of community and key collaborative skills to equip young learners for the demands of the 21st Century.
