A member of the King's Ely Family of Schools, Fairstead House is conveniently located in the centre of Newmarket on the Suffolk/Cambridgeshire border. We are an excellent choice for parents looking for an independent Nursery and School in a rural setting but with the rich cultural resources of Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge and Ely a short distance away.

Fairstead House will provide your child with a unique introduction into the world of learning and discovery. We are extremely proud of our high academic standards, our superb pastoral care and the happy, enriching environment we provide for our children.

Physical Education plays a very important part in the life of the school, both curricular and extra-curricular. Children are encouraged to achieve their full potential, to understand what is involved in being part of a team, to appreciate fair play and to learn the values of good sportsmanship.

Residential Trips and Day Outings form a vital part of the broad, balanced and creative education that Fairstead House provides.

Music and Drama performance is a great strength and plays an important part in the life of the school under the direction of a specialist teacher. All children are given opportunities for singing, performing, composing and playing a selection of instruments. Specialist private tuition is available in a wide range of instruments.

A whole host of clubs and activities are available to children. These range from a wide selection such as; sports, arts, music, craft, drama, Russian, storytelling and many more. Children have the opportunity to choose their activities at the beginning of each term. A Breakfast Club is available each day from 7.30 a.m. and we have a well-established and very popular After-School Care Club until 6 p.m.
