St Edmund’s Mission Aims and Ethos
St Edmund’s College is many things, but it is first and foremost a school and we expect and welcome scrutiny, from within and without, of our academic credentials.
Whilst we are not prepared to cast aside all the other things we offer to focus solely on grades and pass rates, we are very proud of the College’s academic standing and we continue to work towards ensuring all our students leave us with the very best results they can achieve. Our curriculum is traditional and academic, enabling students to draw on the lessons and riches of the past to move forward into the 21st Century with confidence. A strong body of staff and excellent resources are there to support our students in the classroom and our extra-curricular provision contributes to our academic success by developing the wider thinking skills and independence of thought and action that are the traits of scholars.
