St Edmund’s Catholic Academy

Welcome to St. Edmund’s Catholic Academy for students aged eleven to nineteen. On 1 July 2013 St Edmund’s, The Giffard, SS Mary and John’s, St Michael’s and St Teresa’s all became academies and together we form the Bishop Cleary Catholic Multi Academy Company.

Ours is a learning community where we strive to live out the motto of our patron, Edmund Campion. We aim to make To Love and Serve the Lord a reality in our classrooms, in our academy as a whole and in the wider parish communities and Catholic MAC to which we belong. Our aim is to support the development of young people who respect themselves, others and the world in which they all live; to encourage them in their journey in faith; and to challenge and excite them through the opportunities for learning which the academy provides.

St. Edmund’s has built up a reputation for academic excellence and inclusion, for its cutting edge work in ICT, for the quality of its music and drama, for its links with other European countries, for its support of a number of charities at home and abroad and for the range of its sporting achievements. As we move to a new building nearer to Compton Road West, we aim to strengthen and develop that reputation for excellence in Catholic Education.

If you would like to visit St Edmund’s Catholic Academy, simply e-mail or telephone or write. Our pupils, students and staff will be delighted to receive you.
