Respecting Tradition

Inspiring Openness

Stimulating Curiosity

Nurturing Individuality

Pastoral Care

As children move through the Lower Prep they start to adapt to the longer school day as well as learning the art of tying a school tie for the first time! We focus very much on broadening the children’s understanding of the world, encouraging them to foster a positive attitude to learning and helping them in their ability to think for themselves.  Our Form 3 and 4 children benefit from the introduction of specialist teaching in subjects including Food Tech, DT, Art and Drama, as well as experiencing team games and competitive sport matches for the first time.

A popular segment of the timetable is "Learning Outside the Classroom" which significantly enhances the children’s ability to learn and achieve as well as increasing motivation and inspiration. As you can imagine, St. Edmund’s leafy grounds lend themselves perfectly to the long list of fun and sometimes quirky activities adopted by the LOTC team.

Our children have lessons in the following subjects:



Food Tech










DT (Form 4)




A whole host of co-curricular activities are also encouraged with Judo, Golf, Running Club, Tennis, Swimming Club and Instrumental Music lessons and Drama classes available, not forgetting of course the regular outings organised to Windsor Castle and South Downs National Park amongst others. In addition, we appreciate  that our parents have busy lives, so we therefore offer additional free after school activities in music, sport and art and crafts every day of the week.


At St. Edmund's, we firmly believe that a strong foundation in PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) is vital for the holistic development of our students. Our program, tailored around the Jigsaw PSHE framework, is carefully designed to empower students with the necessary tools to make informed decisions, cultivate positive relationships, and foster a strong sense of self-awareness. By engaging in a diverse range of interactive activities and thought-provoking discussions, our students develop resilience, empathy, and critical thinking skills, enabling them to face life's challenges with confidence.

We understand the significance of addressing key topics within PSHE, including mental health and relationships, personal safety, and well-being. To ensure an optimal learning experience, our dedicated team of experienced educators creates a safe and supportive environment, promoting open dialogue and respectful exchanges of ideas. Through this approach, we encourage students to develop a deeper understanding of themselves and the world around them.

Our Prep PSHE programme is specifically designed to inspire our students to become confident, responsible, and well-rounded individuals who are equipped to make positive contributions to society. By nurturing their social and emotional well-being, we cultivate a community of young leaders who possess the knowledge and skills to navigate the ever-changing landscape of the modern world.
