Life of St Edmund's Prayer


Heavenly Father, as we gather in prayer, we ask for the guidance and inspiration of our school patron,
St Edmund, who led a life based on Gospel values and the belief in the power of God.

We, pray that like Edmund, each of us will personally come to believe that,
“I can do all things with the help of God who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13)
and that together our school community may grow ever closer to you and to one another.

May our school be a place that reaches out to the wider community
and is mindful of the environment around us.

We pray in union with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.                                                                     


School Trips

At St Edmund's we take pride in the range of extra-curricular activities that the school has to offer. 

We strongly believe that a greater sense of belonging, respect, and achievement can be accomplished through extra-curricular activities.

Participation in these can have a great impact on a young person's life, often unlocking hidden talents and raising self-esteem.

Clubs, trips, productions, groups and societies are diverse and tailored to meet the needs of all our students.  There is always something for everyone to get involved in during their time at St Edmund's.

"Students are happy at school, feel completely safe and very well cared for."
