A review of The Perse Upper School by Ben written on Monday 30th of May 2011
From my experience of the school I can confidently say that the students are not stuck up, rarely arrogant and certainly don't 'look down' on others. If this was the case 10 years ago, then things have definitely changed. Everyone seems very happy, and there is a very positive attitude towards learning.
Almost without exception, teachers are willing to go out of their way to aid the learning of a student, and the pastoral care is also of a very high quality indeed.
Facilities are excellent and there are is a wide selection of extra-curricular activities, but I don't feel it would be fair to say that the school isn't focused mainly on academia. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it is probably undeniable that someone more interested in less 'traditional' subjects will benefit more from being somewhere else, despite the wide array of extra-curricular activities.
Although perhaps not for everyone, The Perse certainly isn't exclusively centered around academic business, and the students and teachers alike seem to be very content with the school itself and the people in it..
