As a joint church school between the Roman Catholic Diocese of Plymouth and the Church of England Diocese of Salisbury, our primary aim is to provide an education that supports parents and carers from our dioceses with their responsibility to share their faith with their children.  We believe that the spiritual development of young people is best supported if home, school and the church community the family belong to, work together for the benefit of the young person.

The school's Published Admissions Number (PAN) is 184 for Year 7 in September 2018.  The Governing Body proposes to admit students without regard to ability or aptitude in accordance with the admissions criteria.  The Governors at St Edward's are the admissions authority for the school; the Local Authority co-ordinates admissions on our behalf.  All applications must be received on the Local Authority Common Applications forms by the published closing date, 31 October 2017.  If applicants are seeking admission on religious grounds they must also complete the St Edward's VA Supplementary Information form, which must also be returned to the Local Authority in which the applicant is resident, by 31 October 2017

Our prospectus gives further information about our school, and we are happy to help with all admissions queries.  Please contact Miss E Kinzett, HR and Admissions Manager on 01202 740950 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
