Our aims and ethos

At St Edward’s Prep School for Boys, our aims are:

  • To challenge our boys to be the best they can be, providing a high-quality, broad-based education in a supportive and caring environment that gives every boy the opportunity to achieve success.
  • To prepare boys for entry to the best local grammar and independent senior schools, giving them the tools and skills they need to approach the next stage of their education with confidence and enthusiasm.
  • To inspire boys to have a love of learning, an inquisitive mind, the confidence to try new things, the resilience to pick themselves up if they don’t succeed first time and to develop boys who value politeness, good manners and a spirit of tolerance.
"St Edward's is an exceptional school with a wonderful family atmosphere...where all boys are encouraged to the the very best that they can be." Parent
