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.

You are most welcome to come and see for yourself the ways in which the academy is developing on its new site. This year our Open Evening will be on Wednesday 2 October from 6pm to 8.30pm or, if you cannot make that date, our Open Mornings, from 9.15 to 10.45am, will take place on Thursday 26 September, Tuesday 8 October and Wednesday 16 October.

For those of you more interested in Y12 and Y13 the Year 11 into Sixth Form Information Evening will take place on Thursday 7 November from 6.30pm to 8.00pm (times tbc) at S Peter’s Collegiate School with which we share our Sixth Form provision.

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