About us

At St Edward’s, we want all our pupils to achieve well academically and we take great care to ensure that we have an appropriately broad and balanced curriculum and pastoral structures to allow this. The links between the pastoral care, academic achievement and enrichment opportunities are designed to enable every pupil to reach his or her potential.

To develop the whole person a myriad of extracurricular and out of classroom experiences are available from chess club to our vegetable garden, from the rugby team to our drama club. We have an opportunity for every child to demonstrate their talents or discover a new interest.

The school opened in 1981, in buildings formerly occupied by a boys’ high school and since then various alterations and extensions have been made to improve the premises. The latest developments have involved the construction of two new classrooms, the complete refurbishment of one of our labs, new roofing, renovation of the gym into a Sports hall and most recently the refurbishment of the library.

I extend a personal invitation to you, to visit us to meet with both the staff and pupils, who will demonstrate the outstanding education St Edward’s Church of England Academy, Leek has to offer to your children.

God Bless,

Katie Smith
