Cedars School of Excellence strives to remain accessible to as many families as possible through our policy of affordability and non-selection. We operate a bursary scheme that provides help with fees to families who can demonstrate need.
Other Charitable Benefit
Our leadership in technology has benefitted schools around the world. We operate a frequent visit programme, which is free to educators worldwide. Through this programme, we have hosted over 600 visitors to the school since 2010, directly or indirectly helping hundreds of schools and thousands of pupils understand the benefits of mobile learning.
Several of our teachers give freely of their time to speak at events, visit schools and answer hundreds of emails about our mobile learning experience.
Through partnership with James Watt College in Greenock, we offer placements to students studying various education courses. We also provide work-shadowing opportunities to pupils from Cedars or from other schools interested in joining the teaching profession.
As a small school, we do not have substantial sporting facilities to make available to other groups. We operate a programme of venue hire for our classrooms.
Many pupils participate in the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme. Part of the scheme is a community service component which encourages pupils to participate in charitable activities in the community.
Additionally, the school supports other charities through fundraising. Our most recent project was providing iPad and WiFi equipment, along with technical and educational support, to the Aid for Education charity.
We have a small number of classrooms available to local groups. Most classrooms seat between 10 and 25. We also have one main hall which can seat up to 80.
