About Us

Academic Ethos

St Edmund’s is proud of its pupil-centred and ambitious academic ethos.  We seek to foster original thinkers with the intellectual and personal skills to be leaders and decision makers in future.

We offer a variety of challenging and exciting I/GCSE and A-level courses which appeal to young people whatever their strengths and interests.  Highly-qualified teachers and small class sizes mean that young people receive inspirational instruction, with vibrant debate and individual attention colouring every classroom.

Pupils develop learning skills through project work and research opportunities such as the Extended Project Qualification and the Durrell Essay.  We encourage cross-curricular work to promote original ideas and multi-dimensional thinking.

Essentially, our pupils are encouraged throughout their time at St Edmund’s to aim for and achieve the very highest academic standards of which they are capable.
