A Prayer For Our Health Workers

It was wonderful to see so many people applauding the NHS on Thursday on their doorsteps.

Wondrous God, author of life,
you fashioned us in your likeness
and breathed into us
the life which is your own.

Be with those whose special care
is the health of mind and body.
Fill their hearts with awe
for the life which is your gift
and sustain them daily in your service,
that their hands may bring to others
the comfort of your healing touch.
Through Christ our Lord.


(Written by the Liturgy Office England and Wales 2020 Catholic Bishops' conference of England and Wales)

Wishing you all well.
I hope you all have a good weekend.
My continued prayers.

School Chaplain Fiona.

High Expectations High Outcomes 

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.

We remain the top performing school in Portsmouth with standards judged massively above average on a national basis. This is only achieved as a result of our fabulous support from parents, insistence on monitoring students and our spirituality. Our reflection, prayer and the additional opportunities for our faith to grow is our soul at the center, next to our heart of learning and achievement.

God Bless.


Mr Simon Graham - Headteacher
