An uplifting setting. An unrivalled mix of learning and culture.
Our location has a huge impact on school life:
Oxford is only 5 minutes by bus or 10 minutes by bicycle from St Edward’s. It is a compact and beautiful city, rich in culture, with opportunities to go to exhibitions, concerts, gigs, theatre, talks and cinema. St Edward’s. has strong links with academic departments at Oxford University, allowing pupils to extend their knowledge and interests beyond the curriculum. The School works with local charities and institutions and pupils enjoy volunteering and fundraising activities.
St Edward’s is located in the heart of Summertown, a lively area, featuring coffee shops, delis, the school outfitters, an artisan bread shop, a bookshop, banks, supermarkets, pharmacies and a stationer’s.
“Being close to Oxford was a huge plus — it enabled us to get out of the comfort zone of the school environment and experience real life. There was an abundance of culture to soak up.”
We have excellent transport links: two mainline train stations serve central London (one hour away) and coaches leave for London every 15 minutes. Birmingham and London Heathrow airports are both about an hour away. The Teddies Coach collects pupils from London and Beaconsfield every Sunday evening during term time.
