Introduction to our school:

Runnymede St Edward's is an Independent Catholic Preparatory School for boys and girls aged 3-11 years, welcoming children of all faiths.

Come and visit us to experience the happy, inclusive and vibrant community atmosphere that pupils benefit so greatly from, here at Runnymede. We know that children learn best when they are stimulated by an exciting and challenging curriculum which motivates them to learn. We actively encourage children to be inquisitive about the world around them and we celebrate every child’s success.

We aim to nurture a life-long love of learning by building confidence, independence and resilience, in a rich and stimulating environment in which ideas and enthusiasm flourish. We work hard with our children to help them achieve their full potential.

The school is built on the tradition of our founders, the Congregation of Christian Brothers. Based on their vision, Runnymede is a place in which individuals can develop fully, contributing as happy and caring members of the school community. Children’s unique talents are valued, and they learn to live as well-mannered, self-disciplined and confident individuals. We are the Choir School for junior Choristers of the Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ The King in Liverpool.

Runnymede has a long tradition of providing an outstanding all-round education. We have high expectations of our pupils, in terms of both performance and conduct. We are extremely proud of our ongoing academic excellence and our sporting and musical achievements. Why not visit us to see for yourself all that Runnymede has to offer?

The best way to experience all that we have on offer here at Runnymede is to come and visit! To arrange a tour of our school, please call our Admissions team on 0151 281 2300.
