About Us

A very warm and friendly welcome to St Edward’s Prep School and Nursery. St Edward’s is a school in which children discover the world in which they live through exciting educational opportunities and an inspirational approach to learning.

They love and enjoy their time in school and leave with a passion for learning and the skills to be successful in education and in life. Our focus on valuing personal development and academic progress as equals means that St Edward’s is a place that all children thrive and excel. We are delighted to have been rated excellent in both of these areas in our recent ISI Inspection.

“Pupils are highly motivated, inquisitive and well-rounded learners who work effectively in groups and individually.”

What makes our approach unique is the family feel and innovative approach to learning that goes far beyond the National Curriculum and provides an exciting and relevant education. St Edward’s is a place where children feel they truly belong; a school and nursery that values the individual and guides learning according to their interests and needs, putting them at the heart of the process. Everyone who joins us is welcomed into our community where we celebrate difference and diversity.

“Throughout the school a strong sense of togetherness pervades and an awareness that success comes through collaboration and support for each other with kindness.”

Our move to co-education in 2021 was a very natural and successful transition for our school and we are now excited to extend this up to Year 4.

We warmly invite you to come and discover for yourself our happy and inspiring environment and find out the amazing things your child could achieve. I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our St Edward’s family.
