St Edmund's Catholic Academy is a Roman Catholic secondary school and sixth form with academy status, located in the Compton area of Wolverhampton, West Midlands, England. The Building Schools for the Future program invested £7.9 million of its £300 million budget into improving the school. A further £5 million was contributed by Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club and Redrow Homes, which used parts of the site to create a training ground and new homes, respectively. The new school building was completed in September 2013.[1][2]

The name of the school comes from the influence of St. Edmund Campion (1540 – 1581),[3] an English Jesuit priest and martyr. Its motto is "To Love and Serve the Lord".
