Nestled in the heart of the beautiful cathedral city of Ely in Cambridgeshire, King's Ely Junior is an inspiringly innovative and visionary preparatory school, yet one that is built on a fascinating history stretching back over 1,000 years.

A co-educational independent day and boarding school for pupils aged 7-13, King's Ely Junior is full of the same excitement and energy that pervade the whole of King's Ely. We pride ourselves on being a happy yet purposeful community where compassionate teachers teamed with first-rate facilities mean children flourish, both academically and socially.

The curriculum at King's Ely Junior is broad and balanced. We inspire our pupils to push the parameters of their learning. Children set their sights high and begin to take responsibility for their learning, while building strong partnerships with their teachers to ensure continuing personal success.

Our holistic ethos is reflected in the energy invested in our co-curricular offerings. Music, performing and creative art, sport and outdoor education are each embedded in the culture of King's Ely Junior. Embracing and fueling our pupils' talents and enthusiasms in any realm helps to promote strong self-esteem and a positive attitude towards learning and development.

Our boarders and the Ely Cathedral Boy and Girl Choristers live in picturesque, homely accommodation in the college of the cathedral, led by caring housemasters and housemistresses. King's Ely Junior International provides an exciting opportunity for international pupils to fully integrate into school life while receiving specialist language tuition.

We do not have a template for how a King's Ely Junior pupil should be. We believe in drawing out their inner talents and personalities, allowing every child to succeed and we welcome pupils from all backgrounds.

Our close bond with Ely Cathedral supports our pupils and encourages them to grow into reflective and compassionate young people. Along the way they learn and live the values of Energy, Courage and Integrity.
