We are a parent-staff committee raising monies for the direct benefit of all pupils and students at St Edward's College whilst nurturing and promoting the sense of Catholic community.

‘Swing into Summer’
Our inaugural event was held in May on what should have been a gloriously sunny Saturday afternoon! Typically the heavens opened but that did not deter the wonderful parents, pupils, students, teachers, staff, family and friends who attended (260 in all!).
We were treated to the most fabulous food by the College catering team and a welcome well stocked bar! Craft tables, a cinema, an Xbox tournament, table tennis, football, basketball, and giant connect 4 kept the young (and old) happy but the star of the day
was Upper Sixth student Matthew P and his swing band. The afternoon proved so successful we will be running this event again next year. Many thanks to all who attended and a fabulous £450 was raised, not bad for our first event!
