What the Good Schools Guide says...
'Teachers love the curve ball question but some had lost their nerve, teaching only to pass an exam rather than exploring their subject,' says academic director. 'That is changing'. Dead Poets Society this isn't, there is still a generous nod to the syllabus and ticking boxes – plenty of routine revision, past papers, chalk and talk during our spring visit but our guides said they're treated to...
What the school says...
St Edward's has introduced iGCSEs in core subjects, including maths, English, sciences and modern languages. We have also introduced the International Baccaulaureate. The School is a regional training centre for new teachers, and has worked with computer programmers in India to develop a customised academic registration and monitoring system that is now being pursued by other schools.
We continue to boast some of the best sport, art, music and drama in the country. We are still the well-rounded school people knew twenty-five years ago, but now we are also a beacon of academic excellence and innovation. St Edward's now has over a hundred academic scholars and exhibitioners, and has recently expanded its scholarship programme to recruit more of the academically able.
Thank the school
Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.
This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.
Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.
International Baccalaureate: diploma - the diploma is the familiar A-level equivalent.
