St. Edmund’s is an independent co-educational day school for boys and girls from ages 2 to 16 years in Hindhead, Surrey.
St. Edmund's is committed to upholding traditional values of etiquette and formality, promoting a culture of mutual respect and professional courtesy among our students.
We believe in creating a positive atmosphere where students feel supported, encouraged and inspired to learn. Our spacious buildings and grounds provide ample opportunity for children to develop into their best selves, with a focus on teamwork and interaction.
We offer an innovative education that values progression, effort and commitment. Our academic programme is well-rounded, preparing our students for lifelong success with a 'give it a go' attitude that rewards effort and incentivises learning.
We believe that every student is unique. We embrace and celebrate all kinds of diversity, creating a culture that values individuality and promotes inclusivity. Our school recognises the strengths of each student, giving them the confidence to be themselves and fly high. Our students are free to express themselves and pursue their passions. We celebrate the unique character of each pupil, fostering a culture of acceptance where everyone feels valued and supported.
''The teaching at St. Ed’s is brilliant- the teachers are very much ‘on the same side of the desk’ as the children, encouraging them to do their very best and challenging them to be better. Kindness matters in the school and teachers remember that the children are individuals who need nurturing as well as teaching. Despite it being a small school St. Ed’s gives a first class education. Our son got excellent results at GCSE and he owes that to hard work as well as his teachers’ ambitious and passionate support. He looks back at his many happy years at St. Ed’s with great nostalgia and fondness. We love that St. Ed’s continues to encourage individuality and uniqueness in our children but doesn’t forgo the importance of manners, human decency and team spirit. No school can ever be perfect but we feel extremely lucky to have found a very special school that bridges excellence with bags of character and fun.
''It goes without saying that my husband and I are really proud of our son for securing his sixth form place at Charterhouse and doing so well in the exams and interview, however we also recognise and are very appreciative of how much St. Edmund's has done to support and prepare him for this next stage of his education and in helping him develop and grow from the rather shy 5 year old to the secure and confident 15 year old we have today. We hoped when we chose St Edmunds that it would prove to be the best fit for him academically and pastorally and we couldn’t have asked for a better outcome from his schooling on both fronts.''

''I just wanted to say a big thank you to the 7 teachers I spoke with tonight at Parents evening. We were so impressed by their enthusiasm, professionalism and how much they seemed to understand our daughter in such a short space of time. We found parents evening really helpful and it has reconfirmed what a great decision we made. The standard of teaching and quality of professionals we met was very impressive.''
