This new and improved building will be located along the
Giles Lane carpark and replace the temporary portacabins
currently situated there.
Temporary blocks and portacabins should be just that –
temporary; what we need is not another faceless ‘block’, but
an additional building that can stand in equal beauty and
stature to those that currently exist throughout our grounds.
The teaching staff at St Edmund’s are the fulcrum on which
such positive pupil experiences of school life here rest.
Throughout our long and illustrious history, so much care has
been taken to appoint teaching and support staff, from pre-
prep right through to senior level, of truly outstanding quality.
Not only are they inspiring and enthusiastic in delivering their
particular disciplines to the highest possible standard, they’re
also as keen and interested in the extra-curricular involvement
and pastoral wellbeing of their pupils.
As evinced by the words of pupils like Will and Olivia, we
pride ourselves on the exceptional quality of all of our staff
members; not only are they motivating pupils to really shine
academically, but, crucially, they are compassionate too. The
provision of a brand new, colourful and stimulating learning
environment is as necessary to allow our outstanding teachers
to prosper as it is to the pupils who trust them so implicitly.
The staff are my favourite thing about
St Edmund’s and I think the relationship
between staff and pupils is very unique to
this school. Fundamentally, they’re there
to guide and teach us, but they invest a
great deal of interest in us all as people
too and are never too busy to help.”
