Information about the school

St Edmund’s Catholic School is a small, caring community where students and staff thrive. It is an excellent place to teach and learn. It is part of Kent Catholic Schools’ Partnership, one of the largest multi-academy trusts in the country, consisting of 5 secondary schools and 19 primary schools.

We believe that our Gospel Values allow students to flourish in their own way, feel truly valued for who they are and are therefore confident in their ability to achieve their full potential.
We believe that we should help students find out more about who they are, what they enjoy and are good at, so that they can flourish.

While exam results are incredibly important to every student’s future success, we believe they should develop in all areas to reach their full potential. It is precisely this thinking that underpins what we stand for at St Edmund’s.

We have 4 pillars we believe all students should strive to develop in their lives:

Academics The Arts & Culture Service and Faith Active & Healthy Lifestyles
