St. Edward’s school opened in September 1963, and was at the time a Catholic school within the Diocese of Plymouth.
In 1991, dialogue with the Church of England resulted in the launch of the joint Church initiative which continues to this day.
St. Edward’s takes its ecumenical calling and mission seriously, and enjoys strong collaborative relationships with not only Catholic and Anglican parishes, but also with other Christian Church communities.
Whilst safeguarding the respective traditions of the two foundation Churches, St. Edward’s works with all Christians to proclaim the Gospel message to all people in the 21st Century.
We enjoy wide-ranging support from the Diocese of Plymouth and the Diocese of Salisbury in providing the very best educational environment for all of our students and staff.
