Information about the school

St Edmund's School is a co-educational day and boarding school with c. 570 pupils from the ages of 3 to 18. The school is officially designated “a school of religious character”.

The Pre-Prep, Junior, and Senior Schools are on the same site and are closely integrated, using the same Chapel, music and art facilities, dining hall, science laboratories and sports hall. The school prides itself on its friendly, family environment where every pupil and staff member is known and valued.

Although the majority of children are day pupils, one quarter of the school’s pupils are boarders, from a wide range of backgrounds. The school operates a five-day teaching week, but also runs a Saturday morning activities programme which is optional for Senior School day pupils. All boarders participate in both Saturday and Sunday activities programmes.

The school adjoins the University of Kent and is able to make use of many of the University's facilities: the Templeman Library, the Gulbenkian theatre and the public lectures amongst others. London’s West End is within easy reach.
