St Edward’s College

St Edward's College is an independent Roman Catholic secondary day school for boys, located in East Gosford, in the Central Coast region of New South Wales. Colloquially referred to as Eddies, the College caters for boys from Year 7 to Year 12. St Edward's is the only Catholic independent all-boys' secondary school located on the NSW Central Coast. It has over 100 staff and 1,000 students. The school was opened in 1953 by the Congregation of Christian Brothers.

The College has unfortunately been linked with incidents of child sexual abuse by former brothers at the school. Christian Brother Desmond Eric ("Neil") Richards' was sentenced to jail in 2016 for the  sexual abuse of three students from St Edwards College in East Gosford in the 1970s. Brother Richards is a serial paedophile who when sentenced for the three offences at St Edmond’s College, was already serving time in prison for indecently assaulting four other boys at Christian Brothers schools in Albury, Wagga Wagga and Strathfield.
