Education for the whole person

Only God knows our true capabilities; each child has a unique combination of talents to be developed for the good of all and it is our duty as teachers to ensure that we provide as many areas for our students to shine in as possible.  The extra-curricular is not optional at St Edmund’s and we provide a wealth of opportunities with both day and boarding students supported by an excellent pastoral system that monitors and supports each student’s progress in all areas of the College.  An all-round education, however, must not be used as an excuse for mediocrity: we want our children to excel, but whether they do so in one area or several, this quest for excellence must never compromise the development of the whole person.
