St Edwardâ€™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 Edwardâ€™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 â€“ 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 7 on Specialist Musicians Places.
