– Testimonials –

Thank you so much for your wonderful donation of £894.96 which you recently raised for our charity.  We received this last week at Head Office and wanted to let you know just how much of a difference it will make to young people age 13-24 with cancer in the UK.  Amazing!

Louise Walker, Regional Fundraiser, Teenage Cancer Trust, West Midlands and Oxfordshire.

I would like to personally congratulate you on your school’s outstanding achievement of 6th and 10th place at the British Schools Gymnastics Milano Team National Finals.  I am sure it is a proud moment for you, your staff and all your pupils.

– Welcome –

I am delighted to welcome you to St Edmund’s Academy: our work, our faith and our values.

St Edmund’s is an aspirational learning community committed to the personal, spiritual and academic growth of all young people in our care. We are guided by our patron Edmund Campion “To Love & Serve the Lord” and this is felt in all aspects of our day to day lives. Our young people follow CARE values (Calm-Aspirational-Respectful-Engaged) by working hard, respecting themselves, their community and the world around them. Our students acquire knowledge, skills and academic excellence not simply for their own personal advancement, but with an awareness of how this will benefit their community and the wider world.

We have a long tradition of academic excellence and pastoral support. All of our teachers, teaching assistants and pastoral staff are highly qualified and caring professionals who are relentless in their pursuit of the best possible outcomes for our students. They are supported by excellent resources, facilities and integrated technologies to ensure all of our students can access a truly world class education.

Of course, what makes St Edmund’’s special is the time we devote to developing the whole person and so alongside our academic accomplishments you will find distinguished sporting, musical, creative, artistic, technological and scientific endeavour; established links with businesses and the world of work and the active support of local, national and international charities.

We welcome into our community all who share our vision, and who will actively support our aims and values as a Catholic Academy.
