Co-Ed School & Nursery near Alton

St Edmund’s is a private independent school which continuously inspires generations of children to embark on a journey of self-discovery; nurturing their individual brilliance along the way. We recognise the unique qualities of each child and believe in providing an educational journey that ignites their passions and enables them to achieve their full potential. St Edmund’s, based in Hindhead, Surrey, serves the nearby market town of Alton through a school minibus service which runs twice a day for the school term.

Admissions to St Edmund’s typically occur at Nursery, Reception, Form 3 (7+), and Form 7 (11+), with limited availability within Form 9 (13+). Beginning with Little Ed’s Nursery for children ages 2-4, we encourage curiosity and creativity through play-based activities, with our nurturing environment fostering limitless possibilities, guided by attentive support and encouragement.

Progressing through from Lower Prep to Prep, we provide a vibrant and jovial community where boys and girls aged from 8 to 13 years old, thrive academically, socially, and more importantly, as individuals; creating a culture to embrace life and live every day to the full, within the classroom and outside of it too. Curricular activities including Sport, Music, Drama & Art, are all supported with high standards achieved in these areas.

Central to the schools’ ethos are academic excellence, exceptional pastoral care, and a commitment to experiential learning. Our outstanding GCSE and PSB results reflect the dedication of our staff and students, showcasing the excellence of our curriculum. In our 150th year and beyond, we continue to instil the timeless values of respect and humility; essential for success in today’s dynamic and ever-changing world.
