St Edmund's


Senior Co-Curricular

To understand the importance of the co-curriculum is to understand what makes St Edmund’s a unique school.

We offer one of the widest and most varied co-curricular programmes in Kent; pupils can choose anything from horse riding to chess, mindfulness to debating, ground-breaking drama and outstanding musical activities, and some exceptional sporting opportunities. Our programme is flexible and constantly evolving to reflect pupils’ interests and passions, with new clubs and societies starting each term at the request of pupils, and going on to thrive.

In addition, all pupils enjoy outdoor education and work experience weeks, with many active on schemes such as Duke of Edinburgh and the Combined Cadet Force for their entire time with us. All pupils are encouraged to engage with the surrounding community, understand and develop skills for working together, and appreciate the importance of serving others.


As well as being fun, the programme has a strong focus on personal development. Pupils who involve themselves in the co-curriculum often find that they excel in their academic studies, and acquire the confidence and ability to excel professionally and personally.
