Welcome to boarding

At St Ed’s, boarders in our College and Sixth Form are part of a boarding community that is supportive, welcoming and happy. 

Boarders thrive at St Edmund’s. We ensure that from the moment they arrive, boarders are well-supported. When they leave us, they are confident, caring and well-rounded ‘Edmundians’ – well-prepared for the next stage in their life, and to make a real difference in the world.

Our new boarders settle in quickly, aided by our induction programme and weekend. Our experienced boarding team support students throughout their time at St Edmund’s and provide a full boarding activities programme, alongside mentoring support and supervised study.

At St Edmund’s, we emphasise the importance of educating the whole person – intellectual, physical, emotional and spiritual. For boarders of all faiths, the Chapel provides a place for reflection and prayer, as well as opportunities to take on leadership roles in the spiritual aspects of College life.

I warmly invite you to join us as a boarder at St Edmund’s,

Mr Smerdon, Head of Boarding

For many weeks of the year, St Edmund's College is a home from home for students and we aim to make their experience an enriching, happy and comfortable one.
