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.
We have created a complete St Edward’s School Timeline of our story from 1963 to 2020. Click on the link to read more.
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.
God Our Father,
in the Name of Christ
and in the power of the Spirit,
we commit ourselves
to you and to one another,
to Work, Learn and Pray
as one Body in Christ;
to do nothing apart
which we can do together,
to serve your purposes
of Justice, Love and Peace.
