Boarding (ages 11-18)
“The quality of boarding provision is excellent” ISI Inspection Report 2015
St Edmund’s Junior and Senior Schools offer the exciting and popular option of boarding in splendid, traditional buildings which epitomise the historic grandeur of Canterbury life. Junior boarders from the ages of 11 – 14 enjoy the homely charm of School House which has recently been refurbished and is situated in the heart of St Edmund’s School, while the Choristers of Canterbury Cathedral who are educated at St Edmund’s live in Choir House within the historic precincts of the Cathedral itself. Senior School boarding pupils from the ages of 14-18 occupy Owen and Gorsefield Houses which have fully equipped rooms, each with private study areas. All of St Edmund’s boarding boasts spectacular views over the historic city of Canterbury and access to excellent Common Room, Library and ICT facilities within the main building of the school.
Boarding life is fast paced and busy with a full range of extra-curricular activities offered at weekends. Boarders hail from the UK and overseas, integrating fully and successfully in tutorial groups and within Houses.
Flexi, weekly and full boarding options are available.
St Edmund’s School is proud of its dedicated team of resident and visiting staff. Full staff list is available here.
