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. This ‘good’ judgment was confirmed in an Ofsted ‘short inspection’ in February 2018.

St Edmund’s has a long history of securing excellent progress and outcomes for the students in our care. In 2018 our students achieved record equalling GCSE results, allowing them to go on to 6th forms, colleges, apprenticeships and jobs, ensuring they step into their futures as respectful, responsible, resilient and successful young adults.

St Edmund’s became a founder member of the Magna Learning Partnership (MLP), a multi-academy trust, in April 2017. We work in partnership with the MLP and its member schools to deliver excellent outcomes for the young people in our care. In September 2017 we began working collaboratively with another MLP school, Wyvern College and together the two schools form the Wyvern St Edmund’s Learning Campus. We share teachers, class rooms and facilities while still retaining each school’s distinct character and ethos.
