At St Edmund’s we understand that the first steps your child takes into the world of learning and sharing with others will guide their future development.

Our Prep School lays the foundations for a life that is ethical, inquisitive, sociable and fulfilling. We seek to nurture the spirit and light a fire of passion for life-long learning in the hearts of every child.

Pupils are offered a first-rate educational experience, helping to cultivate academic aptitude, but also sporting and musical talent. Artistic and dramatic abilities are carefully developed through specialist teaching. These academic and creative faculties are set within a nurturing pastoral framework which aims to build positive relationships with parents and children alike, ensuring St Ed’s children finish their time here as well-rounded, confident and thoughtful individuals.

Small class sizes enable focused attention to ensure that your child becomes a confident learner both inside and outside the classroom. Our facilities are shared with the College, including an indoor swimming pool, that all children from our Nursery to Year 6 use, and our committed teachers ensure all pupils access the experiences they need to develop fully in all aspects of their lives.

With a heritage and ethos deeply rooted in Catholic Social Teaching, we welcome families from all faiths and none who will appreciate the all-round education we offer.

I invite you to give your child an Ed’s start and join us as a member of the St Edmund’s Prep family.

Mr Steven Cartwright, Headmaster

Guided by the principles of our Catholic faith and acknowledging Christ as our leader and teacher, we strive for excellence and creativity in a forward-thinking education. We commit ourselves to the preparation of our children by instilling in them a sense of responsibility and ensuring that they leave St Edmund’s Prep with a solid foundation on which to build their future in the College and beyond.
We are so thankful to have found such a wonderful environment for our son. He is very happy and settling in well.
