St Edwards CE Academy is a Church of England Controlled School and as such we endeavour to base our everyday lives on Christian values and principles.

We are very proud of our School and its achievements. We are continually striving to provide a stimulating environment that is fully inclusive, happy and caring. An environment that enables everyone to develop skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary to build fulfilling lives.

We have a hardworking, enthusiastic and committed staff who, supported by dedicated governors, believe in the benefits of working as a team, which includes parents/carers, the Church and the wider community.  This team approach ultimately optimises learning for all our children enabling them to flourish and be all they can be.

We are very much a community school, which happily welcomes visitors.

Principal: Mrs Sue Machin
