We believe that children who come to St Edward’s have an excellent start to their education.
The warm and welcoming family feel of our school, coupled with our highly skilled staff and the high expectations we have of all who work and learn here, makes our school a special place to be.
As we understand what an important decision this is, we warmly invite you to come and see the school in action for yourselves. Please do not hesitate to contact the school office for information of future Open Days and/or school tours, and we are happy to arrange a time for you to come around on your own or with your family, you prefer.
As outlined below, we allocate a number of places to families that are not based on church attendance.
As a voluntary aided Church of England Primary school, St Edward’s follows has adopted its own admissions procedures.

72 places will be allocated to applicants based on church membership. Parents applying under this criterion must complete the Supplementary Information Form which is available below or from the school office.
18 places will be allocated to community applicants. Parents applying under this criterion must complete the Supplementary Information form as well.
