About St. Edmund’s Girls’ School

Our vision is summed up by the phrase ‘inspired to achieve’ and we aim to ensure that  through inspiration, challenge and support, our students achieve outstanding progress and outcomes in order to fully realise their ambitions within a positive, caring environment which is underpinned by Christian values.  Our students are thus prepared to become happy, responsible and successful members of society.

St Edmund’s Girls’ School is a Church of England academy for 11-16 year olds. With approximately 900 girls on roll, we are the largest of three secondary schools situated in Laverstock, a short distance from Salisbury City Centre. In March 2015 an Ofsted inspection judged St Edmund’s as a good school.  The school became an academy on February 1st 2012, joining the two Salisbury Grammar Schools as the third converter academy in the south of Wiltshire.  In April 2017 St Edmund’s became a founder member of the Magna Learning Partnership, a multi-academy trust.

Our history of excellent results show that year on year, over 70% of students at St Edmund’s achieve five or more GCSEs at C grade or above including Maths and English. This places us as one of the most successful comprehensive schools in Wiltshire.  Our students achieve well. In the summer of 2017 74% of our girls gained 5 or more A* to C grades at GCSE including English and Mathematics, maintaining the school’s record of excellent results.

We work in partnership with the other schools in Magna Learning Partnership and we also have links with our feeder Primary schools and with the schools and colleges our girls join after leaving St Edmund’s.

We welcome prospective students and their parents on any school day.
