Welcome from Louise Moelwyn-Hughes, Head of School
St Edmund’s Senior School excels at preparing 13-18 year old young men and women for university and beyond, encouraging them to aim for the very highest standards both academically and on the extra-curricular front. Our pupils are responsive, intelligent and creative individuals who relish a challenge and set their sights high. Excellent results at GCSE and A-level place St Edmund’s Senior School as one of the most successful schools in the country, while our extra-curricular programme is broad and varied, encompassing elements of fun, challenge and service for all.
We offer GCSE and A-level qualifications, alongside comprehensive university and careers advice. The majority of our pupils leave St Edmund’s to attend top universities and conservatoires, and are well rounded, interesting and determined individuals.
The Senior School encourages the development of a broad range of personal and social skills, and the House system, enjoyed by day pupils and boarders alike, promotes good interpersonal relationships, a sense of community and healthy competition.
Self confidence, a positive outlook and the ability to work both collaboratively and independently are fostered in Senior School in an atmosphere which is entirely productive, challenging, yet supportive. We welcome pupils who have the enthusiasm and determination to make the most of the opportunities which this friendly, vibrant school can offer them.
