St Edward's School and St Edward's Preparatory School welcome pupils from 1 - 18 years. Situated on two sites, approximately five minutes from each other, and enjoying over 45 acres of wonderful grounds, both schools share a commitment to excellence in academic study and the provision of outstanding pastoral care.
The strong Christian values of St Edward's provide the framework around which we enrich the lives of each and every student and member of our wider community. We prepare pupils to lead fulfilling and purposeful lives which will contribute to the wider world in which we live. St Edward's pupils leave both schools fully prepared for the road ahead, be that a successful transition to Senior School, or the move to university and beyond. Parents comment on the positive ethos and values of St Edward's and our pupils are grounded, intelligent, articulate, caring and responsible.
In 1987, Charlton Park School for Girls and Whitefriars School for boys merged to become St Edward’s. In the beginning the School was divided into First, Middle and Senior Sections, but in 1995 was restructured to Junior and Senior.
In 2012 pupils and staff attended Mass in Tewkesbury Abbey to celebrate the first twenty-five years of the School.
St Edward’s welcomed its first female Head when, in 2013, Mrs Pat Clayfield became Headmistress. The Current Head is Mr Matthew Burke, who joined the School in April 2020
