Welcome to Gaudy Week 2019


he Summer Term in any senior school has one thing in common: public exams. However, the Summer Term at St Edward’s also has an ace up its sleeve and offers something utterly unique: Gaudy Week. This seven-day celebration of all aspects of School life at Teddies is the perfect foil to the pressures of the exam season, ensuring the School draws the academic year to a close in a rapturous crescendo of vibrant entertainment.

Taking in theatrical and dance productions, art and design exhibitions, a host of musical performances, academic presentations, exhibits and trips, as well as all the sporting action from Cricket Week and the Henley Royal Regatta, the festivities conclude with the speeches and prize-giving of Gaudy itself, taking place this year on Friday 5th July
