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.
