Catholic Heritage

St Edmund’s Mission Aims and Ethos

As England’s oldest Catholic school, we draw great strength from our history, rooted in the sacrifice of the Douay martyrs. 

All our lessons start with a prayer, Mass is celebrated regularly and all students study for the GCSE (Catholic syllabus) in Religious Studies with an examined or non-examined course of study as an integral part of our post-16 provision.  ‘To propose is not to impose’ however and we are proud of the religious and cultural diversity at the College.  What we offer to all our students is a rich heritage that offers solace if needed and challenge when required; we offer up a sacramental view of society, so that in ordinary life we meet God and are touched by grace.
