Cedars Upper School was graded as good in all areas by Ofsted in 2017 and has just over a thousand pupils on roll. The school is a 13-18 Upper school and has been part of The Chiltern Learning Trust for the past 5 years. Until recently it was the only school with a sixth form in the Trust. Students join Cedars from five local main middle schools, as well as many out of catchment areas. In 2022, the school’s GCSE and A Level results were the best in Leighton Buzzard and the wider county. Considerable work has been carried out to develop and update the site and there have been several new senior leaders appointed to continue to drive the standards forward.
