About St Edmund's Girls' School
St Edmund's is an oversubscribed academy situated in Laverstock, on the outskirts of the city of Salisbury. We currently have approximately 880 girls on roll (Years 7 to 11) and our students achieve well. We are especially proud of our caring but challenging Christian ethos, which runs through every aspect of school life. Just under a year ago we achieved Outstanding in all categories in our Statutory Inspection of Church Schools and in March 2015 we were graded as good by Ofsted. Our school values, Respect, Responsibility and Resilience, were chosen by the students and are reflected in every aspect of school life.
We have high expectations of student attainment and similarly we expect much from our staff. We are aiming for outstanding provision in all areas and this appointment is a key factor in ensuring that we achieve that ambition.
Our students are delightful; they embrace learning opportunities and respond well to challenge. They appreciate the very positive working relationships they have with their teachers and other staff who support them. In turn, our staff ?go the extra mile? to help girls achieve beyond expectations. Our reputation in the local community is soundly based upon the value we add to our students from the point at which they join us until their departure for sixth forms and colleges in the local area.
