About the school
Recognising the premium parents place on the education of their children, the St Edmund’s Junior School aims to provide with a happy and positive experience of childhood and a rich all-round education that inspires academic achievement. Although we share the same campus as the Senior School and Pre-Prep, the Junior School has an identity and experience very much of its own and we are proud of our reputation as a friendly school and the sense of family arising from co-education and a wide age-range. The attention and care which we offer each individual is made possible by small class sizes, the close links which we foster with parents, and the pastoral care which we provide. We know our boys and girls very well and we enjoy their company. In the classroom and beyond, our pupils are encouraged to discover and explore whatever aptitudes and interests they may have and this, together with the school’s positive ethos, encourages the development of confidence and a sense of self-worth and personal achievement. For younger pupils (from age 3), St Edmund’s has a prestigious reputation for the very highest standard of Nursery and Pre-Prep education. All pupils age 3 – 7 enjoy the benefits of the school’s Forest School status. Boarding at St Edmund’s (on a weekly, flexi or full basis) offers a family experience in a stimulating environment where the individual is valued.
