Being a Day Pupil
Day Pupils at St Edward’s
ay pupils are allocated rooms in Houses and are as much part of the school community as their boarding peers; there are two to three day places per House per year. Roughly 15% of the School community choose to attend St Edward’s as day pupils.
Day pupils at St Edward’s enjoy an unusual and exceptionally fulfilling day. School starts at 8.00am and will finish at either 6.30pm or 9.00pm, depending on pupils’ preference and their activities outside the classroom.
Evenings at St Edward’s offer an outstanding range of opportunities, such as talks by visiting speakers, supervised homework sessions, clubs and societies (including Medicine Society, Debating Club, Filmmaking, International Society, Dissection Club – among many others), drama, dance and music rehearsals, sports practice, and the chance to have supper and enjoy leisure time with friends. Day pupils receive equal access to these opportunities alongside their boarding peers.
All pupils at St Edward’s attend school on Saturdays. Morning lessons are followed by sports fixtures and other commitments in the afternoon.
It’s fantastic. Teaching staff have no idea whether my son is a day boy or a boarder. I think it’s really wonderful — they are so well integrated that it makes no difference. This is unusual.Current parent
