Welcome to St Edward's College


St Edward’s College offers an inspiring and challenging Catholic education to over 1200 children from across the City and further afield. The priorities of serving the community, demonstrating commitment, caring for others and striving for success, which underpin the education provided to all pupils, are based firmly on the values promoted by Blessed Edmund Rice, the founder of the Congregation of Christian Brothers and Father James Nugent who, in 1853, established what was later to become St Edward’s College. Pupils and staff are guided by the ethos of the College in the way they conduct their lives and relate to one another - all pupils are encouraged to work hard, respect themselves and respect others.

The school is an Academy and is located on a spacious campus in East Liverpool. It is the Choir School to the Metropolitan cathedral of Christ the King and provides both boy and girl choristers. There is a strong tradition of music at the College and, each year, a number of pupils are admitted to Year Seven on Specialist Musicians Places.

The College is one of a handful of schools to have been judged by Ofsted as Outstanding in three consecutive inspections. Research published in 2011 by Education Charity the Sutton Trust confirmed St Edward’s College as one of the best schools in the country at turning A Level points into places at prestigious Universities. Of almost 2, 500 schools only 23 were rated as having both a high proportion of pupils going on to University and high acceptance rates to the country’s top 30 Universities. St Edward’s was one of only four non-selective schools to fall into this high performing category.

Academic standards and expectations are high and the curriculum offers breadth, choice and challenge at all key stages. There are over 300 pupils in Sixth Form who are able to choose from 27 A Level subjects and many of whom proceed to study at some of the country’s most prestigious universities.
