About us

Located in 400 acres of beautiful Hertfordshire countryside, St Edmund’s College and Prep School is a safe, stimulating environment for students aged 3–18, with boarding from 11.

As the oldest Catholic school in England, prayer and reflection underpin all we do, but our values are universal, and we welcome families of all faiths and none.

We’re a modern, forward-thinking school; proud of our academic standing, but grades are not our sole focus. At St Edmund’s, the spiritual, academic, pastoral and co-curricular are of equal value. These four elements combine to create an education that’s second to none.

The true measure of our success is found in the qualities of the young people we send out into the world: excellent but never arrogant; ambitious but never selfish; robust but never uncaring; and faith-filled but never intolerant.

A hidden gem, this Catholic co-ed has got acres of grounds, stunning facilities and puts wellbeing and personal development at the centre of its educational offering.
