The College was founded by the Christian Brothers and has been educating boys on the Central Coast since 1953. The College provides a wonderfully rich education which is authentic to the values which underpin the touchstones for schools conducted in the traditions of Blessed Edmund Rice the founder of Christian Brothers schools worldwide. These touchstones being: Liberating Education, Gospel Spirituality, Inclusive Community and Justice and Solidarity.
St Edward’s first and foremost is a Catholic School which provides students with relevant and engaging opportunities to deepen their faith and spirituality. Students are encouraged to look beyond themselves putting their faith into action. Through involvement in our social justice program students are challenged to become socially conscious, counter-cultural in their thinking and empowered to contribute positively to society through the promotion of inclusivity, justice and solidarity.
The College is a learning community which provides a contemporary, holistic and liberating education that challenges, nurtures and inspires young men in years 7-12 to be aspirational regarding their future. Students are encouraged to strive to achieve their personal best, developing the necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes to flourish in an ever-changing world.
St Edward’s acknowledges that the pastoral care and well-being of students is paramount to the promotion of quality learning. We take our responsibilities for child safeguarding extremely seriously and therefore we commit to ensuring that our school has rigorous policies and practices to ensure that we are a place that is both safe and inclusive. Our child safeguarding programs are regularly updated and checked for compliance with regulatory requirements. The development of positive relationships, between teachers, students and families remains a focus, to ensure that a nurturing environment, in which all students feel safe and supported in their learning is promoted.
St Edward’s is a comprehensive school, providing a diverse range of learning experiences in the classroom through the broad range of subjects offered. These learning experiences are supported by a diverse selection of extra-curricular, sporting, cultural and religious experiences, allowing all boys to demonstrate their talents in a variety of ways.
