A Warm Welcome 

St Edmund's is a thriving, positive and happy environment where individuals achieve excellent levels of personal development.   The students and staff recognize the importance of the school's Catholic and Christian education and are committed to it in every way.    Working with students we aim to foster a growth and commitment to the love and service of Christ through the teachings of the Catholic Church.

The school show this year was once again spectacular with some star worthy performances. It was great to see so many students involved and clearly enjoying themselves.  St Edmund’s continues to have great sporting success including recent victories in the Portsmouth Sailing Regatta where we were overall winners. The Sports Personality of the Year Award was another brilliant event, where the skills, talent, achievement and teamwork of students shone through. Congratulations to all students who won awards/nominations.

We have had some wonderful spiritual retreats this half term in Years 8 and 10. A great combination of reflectiveness, prayer and inspiration in two completely contrasting experiences. We cannot underestimate these opportunities to fill our children with the holy spirit and the chance to be close to God.

Finally I would like to thank parents for their support this year with all the ‘behind the scenes’ work. It continues to be a privilege to be part of helping our children to grow up and develop. My thanks also to staff throughout the school who work tirelessly to ensure that all the children have the best education and opportunities at all times.

Next year (the school is now full to capacity), we have thirteen new teachers starting in September. This will ensure that we can maintain the quality of education and provision for all of our students. When students return in September we will have completed our summer work programme. This will include the refurbishment of all of the swimming pool changing rooms, a science laboratory and the ground floor of the Kelly block (3 classrooms). As well as new artificial grass and seating area and student walkways.

I hope you all have a restful summer and I look forward to students return in September. Good luck to Year 11 who have left us and we pray that they will continue ‘to do all things with the help of God who strengthens me.’

God Bless.
