St Edmund’s College



In their own words

Our mission, stretching back to 1568, has always been to send young people into the world who will, whether by mighty deeds or quiet leadership, be a force for good. There could be no greater epitaph for an Edmundian than to lead a life through which they make the world around them a little better, and the people around them a little happier.


We want our students to be excellent but never arrogant; ambitious but never selfish; robust but never uncaring and to show conviction but never intolerance. All this in a school which genuinely believes in the education of the whole person, mind, body and spirit; a school with a remarkable history and Catholic heritage, that celebrates tradition, whilst looking to the future.


I am immensely proud of St Edmund’s and warmly invite you to visit us and discover more about our school.


Mr Matthew Mostyn




The school uses the CEM Select entrance exam to assess admissions. CEM Select includes particular questions types, covering Verbal Reasoning, Non-Verbal Reasoning and Mathematics, often paired with a CEM English paper. It is particularly important to practise the Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning modules, as the precise type of question varies across different exam boards.


We work with the test experts at Ready Steady Pass, to bring you the most accurate and best value CEM Selet practise material. These exams are audited by AQA and EdExcel exam markers, and ISI independent school inspectors. Tests are taken online, include unlimited resits and emailed results including answer sheets to share with tutors and parents.


Each individual exam contains a full CEM Select experience, covering Maths, Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning; and includes a CEM style English exam as standard. Buy the Bundle or Complete Collection to get the best value for money.
