About St Edmund’s
Located in 400 acres of beautiful Hertfordshire countryside, St Edmund’s offers a safe and stimulating environment for students age 3-18, with boarding available from age 11. We’re proud to be the oldest Catholic school in England. Prayer and reflection underpin all that we do, but our values are universal, and we welcome families of all faiths.
We are a profoundly modern and forward-thinking school. We are very proud of our academic standing, but we do not focus solely on grades. At St Edmund’s, the spiritual, academic, pastoral and co-curricular are of equal value, and these four elements come together to offer a formation which we believe is second to none.
We believe the true measure of our success is the qualities of the young men and women we send out into the world: excellent but never arrogant; ambitious but never selfish, robust but never uncaring; and faith-filled but never intolerant.
