As you will read in this edition of the newsletter, we have had lots of victories/good news this term both on a local and national basis. Winning the Literature quiz for the sixth time (out of 7!) is one of the amazing achievements worth reading about.
St Edmund’s has also received two letters from the Government relating to GCSE results. We are one of the most improved and top performing schools in the country (in the top 10% nationally), as well as being nominated for a top award for our progress with disadvantaged students. Again, we at St Edmund’s have been recognised as one of the top achieving schools in the country in relation to individual student progress.
