Welcome from the Headteacher
It gives me great pleasure to introduce myself as Headteacher of St Edward’s Church of England Academy.
I feel privileged to be leading a school with such a long history and strong community. We are proud of our history and excited about our future.
From my first visit to St Edward’s, it was clear that this is a school with an extraordinary student body. The students are an absolute credit to St Edward’s. Parents and carers wish the upmost success for their children and I look forward to working closely together to secure the best outcomes.
April 2018 marks an exciting time for St Edward’s Church of England Academy. We have become part of the Unity Schools Partnership, an organisation with a proven track record of success. I am excited to be leading the school at such a momentous time.
At St Edward’s Church of England Academy, we are very proud of our long history. We remain dedicated to the vision of the original St Edward’s School and strive to provide the best possible education for local children of all backgrounds, abilities and beliefs. Everything we do is set within the foundation of the Christian values of love and mutual respect.
Our motto, ‘Life in all its fullness’ underpins all that we do at St Edward’s Church of England Academy. Our rich and exciting curriculum stimulates student interest and offers a broad education for all. The achievement of our students is at the centre of our vision. By working in partnership with all of our students and their families, we strive to ensure that outcomes are the best that they can possibly be. We have a commitment to the highest academic standards. Combined with a wide range of curricular and extra-curricular activities, St Edward’s Academy aims to enhance the life opportunities of all our students. It is through the foundation of success at school that students will truly experience ‘life in all it fullness’.
St Edward’s Academy is friendly and welcoming. We offer excellent care, guidance and support for our students. There are high standards of behaviour and we strive for academic achievement for all of our students. The St Edward’s family is a learning community that involves parents and carers, has strong links with the local area and values its key role in the local community. Our students are encouraged to develop pride in being part of St Edward’s and will grow and develop over their 7 years with us. We want our students to be the very best that they can be. We therefore pledge to provide a rich educational experience so that every student is able to make excellent progress, whatever their starting point may be. If you hope to educate your child in a caring environment focused on achievement, then St Edward’s Academy is the school for you.
I hope very much that you will join us on our journey to make St Edward’s Academy the only school of choice for local families. I look forward to meeting you in the future.
