The School

Saint Edmund's Catholic Primary School

Saint Edmund’s Catholic Primary School was opened in April 1971 to serve the local population of the town and surrounding villages, and what was the nearby Royal Air Force Station at Lyneham. The school is on the northern side of the town of Calne, within a residential area, just off the main A3102 road from Calne to Lyneham and Swindon. It is about half a mile from the town centre and Saint Edmund’s Catholic Church.

Saint Edmund’s Catholic Primary School is committed to providing the best education for all and offers a creative and high-quality curriculum enabling children to learn and flourish through their work and play.

The school is surrounded by beautiful wooded and garden areas and the children are inspired by the natural world and are proud to be stewards of their school environment and out into the wider community.


The Friends of Saint Edmund’s (FOSE) are a group of parents who work hard to organise different events to raise funds for the school.
