Welcome from Ed O’Connor


Ed O’Connor, Acting Head of Junior School

St Edmund’s Junior School is a happy and exciting place to learn.

Our pupils feel inspired at school and they aim to be the best they can possibly be. We want our pupils to achieve excellent academic outcomes and also to develop personal resilience and a value system based upon kindness, honesty and respect for others.

We have a very strong family ethos and work hard to help and encourage our pupils in a caring, positive learning environment. Our nurturing approach is underpinned by dedicated and committed teaching, small class sizes, close links with our parent community and a clear focus on first rate pastoral care. To this end, we seek to understand our pupils as individuals and support them closely throughout their learning journey.

Outside of the classroom, pupils benefit from a rich and varied extra-curricular programme.  Our school offers outstanding opportunities to participate and excel in sport, music, drama and the creative arts.

The Junior School, which educates children aged 7 – 13, has its own unique character but it also benefits enormously from being part of the wider St Edmund’s family based upon a common set of educational values.  We also share the wonderful facilities of our St Edmund’s site and work closely with our colleagues in Pre-Prep and the Senior School to ensure a smooth transition through each stage of your child’s learning journey.

As a parent whose children have flourished at St Edmund’s Junior School, I know how transformative the experience here can be.

We hope that you will be able to visit St Edmund’s and discover what makes this such a unique community.
