With its excellent pupil to staff ratio, St Edmund’s School can guarantee its Scholars the personal and professional attention that their talents deserve.

The highly prized title of ‘Scholar’ exemplifies pupils who contribute to the whole of school life but will take advantage of the many extension opportunities to develop their academic abilities. Our specialist, dedicated teachers nurture this enthusiasm, inspiring pupils to reach greater heights.

 

Academic Scholars will be challenged and stimulated both within and without the confines of the curriculum. At Sixth Form level, a wide range of societies gives pupils the opportunity to make presentations and lead seminar discussions on their coursework-related studies.

Beyond the curriculum, many organised activities provide the opportunity to develop powers of initiative and leadership. The Head of Careers and Progression takes a special interest in encouraging Scholars to seek the most exciting opportunities beyond school. We offer the Extended Project Qualification – a research project much supported by top universities.
