St Edmund's College
St Edmund's College is a 'modern, forward-thinking school; proud of our academic standing, but grades are not our sole focus. At St Edmund’s, the spiritual, academic, pastoral and co-curricular are of equal value'.
The College was founded in 1598 as the 'English College' in Douay in France, relocating to its current site during the French Revolution. The school became fully co-educational in 1986.
Headmaster Matthew Mostyn says the school's mission "has always been to send young people into the world who will, whether by mighty deeds or quiet leadership, be a force for good. There could be no greater epitaph for an Edmundian than to lead a life through which they make the world around them a little better, and the people around them a little happier."
"We want our students to be excellent but never arrogant; ambitious but never selfish; robust but never uncaring and to show conviction but never intolerance. All this in a school which genuinely believes in the education of the whole person, mind, body and spirit; a school with a remarkable history and Catholic heritage, that celebrates tradition, whilst looking to the future."
The school is a registered charity managed by a board of governors. Read more on the Charity Commission website.
The school was last inspected in November 2019. Read the inspection reports on the school's website.
Matthew Mostyn was appointed Headmaster of St Edmund's College in September 2019.
