St Edmund’s College educates young men spiritually, academically, socially, physically and creatively in a compassionate Catholic context. Our community empowers young men to engage in critical reflection leading to positive action for our world.

St Edmund’s College seeks to provide the best possible education for our students in an environment which is permeated by the consciousness of the presence of God and the love for Christ. The staff at St Edmund’s College are committed to providing students with an educational framework suitable to the needs of boys and men. Our mission is to enable our young men to be resilient and wise enough when they leave us in Year 12 to effectively take their place in a society that is challenging, demanding and enriching. As well as striving for academic success in the classroom, we strive to develop the emotional and social skills of our students. Students need to feel that they belong to our community and that they are valued by the St Edmund’s family.


St Edmund’s College, an inclusive Catholic community, enriched by Ipswich culture and grounded in the Edmund Rice Tradition, educates and inspires young men to live simply and to make a difference.
