Meet the Head

A warm welcome from all of us at Runnymede. This website is designed to give you a flavour of the Runnymede ethos, and introduce you to some of the features that make Runnymede so special.

Here at Runnymede we know that young 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 have high expectations of our pupils, in terms of both performance and conduct. This is reflected in our academic excellence, our excellent Secondary Transfer record, and in pupils’ engagement in their own learning and development.  We look forward to working with your child and helping them to achieve their full potential.

Our community is shaped by our Catholic faith and values and it is within this context that the growth and development of our children takes place. Runnymede has a long history associated with Blessed Edmund Rice who was the founder of the Congregation of Christian Brothers, and whose ethos underpins the very fabric of our establishment. We are the Choir School for the junior boy choristers of Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral, and their beautiful voices can be heard every morning from 8am, echoing throughout the school and playground.

The very best way to appreciate what Runnymede has to offer is to come and visit; during a tour of our school visitors can experience first hand the happy, inclusive and vibrant community atmosphere that pupils benefit so greatly from. We look forward to seeing you!

With best wishes,


Bradley Slater, Head Teacher of Runnymede St Edward's School
