Head’s Welcome

2013_LJMHSt Edmund’s is a distinctive and historic boarding and day co-educational school where a family atmosphere is fostered, individuals are valued, the spiritual element is explored, and pupils enjoy a rich academic and cultural experience.  We are committed to producing happy and successful pupils who can access a high quality education, while enjoying a wealth of stimulating and exciting extra-curricular activity.  Set within a beautiful and extensive green field site affording spectacular views of the city and Cathedral of Canterbury, St Edmund’s not only enjoys a stunning location, but also offers a happy, vibrant and creative environment within a supportive community.

The school offers a nurturing, yet challenging, environment where an emphasis is placed upon academic rigour and extra-curricular involvement.  Our extra-curricular provision is broad, but also encourages excellence in each individual area.  Our tradition of housing and educating the Choristers of Canterbury Cathedral brings much to the richness and diversity of our community.

Academic standards are set high.  Our dedicated and talented teaching and support staff work alongside pupils to encourage them to develop into caring, resourceful and confident young men and women who are well equipped to tackle the demands of the modern world.

St Edmund’s produces remarkable young people who enjoy the challenge of discovering and making the most of their talents.  I hope that you will gauge something of the vibrancy and creativity of St Edmund’s from our website and that you will explore further by paying us a visit.
