Private Nursery & School near Petersfield

St Edmund’s School provides a comprehensive private academic curriculum that celebrates the unique qualities and diverse talents of each child, guiding them on a journey of education which sparks their passions and enables them to achieve their best potential. Founded in 1874, the school has inspired generations of students to nurture their individual brilliance at every turn. Via the A3, students from Petersfield can take our school-run minibus to our location in Hindhead, running twice a day within the school term.

Admissions to St Edmund’s start with Little Ed’s Nursery for your child aged between 2–4 years old, following onto Reception, Form 3 (7+), and concluding their journey with our Senior School from Form 7 for ages 11 and above. With purpose-built facilities including a dedicated garden and Forest School area for our Nursery pupils, your young child will receive the best start to their educational life through our excellent school environment.

Within all three stages of the school pathway after Reception, our Lower Prep, Prep and Senior schools all share a broad & exciting curriculum, with the correct balance of support and challenge with equal opportunities to discover creative, artistic, musical and sporting talents. Spoken language receives particular attention in Lower Prep to ensure your child develops confidence and self-expression to contribute towards class discussions and further beyond the classroom.

At our school throughout all stages and year groups, we maintain a close-knit community where each and every child is acknowledged, valued and encouraged to explore their interests. By instilling a lifelong love for learning, our students will thrive whichever path they choose to go down, fully supported by our dedicated teachers and staff. Our outstanding GCSE and PSB results showcase the excellence of our progressive curriculum taught to students.

With high academic standards, our exceptional pastoral care and more individual learning with smaller class sizes, St Edmund’s is likely to be an attraction for your child. We invite you therefore to experience our vibrant school atmosphere firsthand – get in touch today through or ring 01428 609 875 to visit us at our next Opening Morning event near Petersfield and book your very own personalised tour around the school.
