Encouraging Excellence, Nurturing Talent in Every Individual
King Edward's is one of the oldest schools in the country, older than Harrow or Eton and many of the other famous Independent Schools. King Edward's offers an all round education with a strong academic focus. We are consistently one of the top performing schools in Lincolnshire, the East Midlands and are ranked as one of the top 200 state schools in the United Kingdom.
"It is not enough to leave King Edward's with a good set of results"
All children have unique talents and we believe it is our role to identify those talents and help to develop them. We agree with the views of John Cridland the former Director of the CBI who argues that business needs -
"individuals who are both well grounded in terms of education but also
well rounded in terms of personality"
We also strongly support Professor Robert Winston's views -
"I would rather have young people around me who developed other interests at university and didn’t just focus entirely on getting that first. It’s produced a lot of useful science because we’ve worked as a group of friends, a team. That’s very much more important than almost anything else"
[Professor Robert Winston, Emeritus Professor of Fertility Studies, Imperial College London]
Ludensians leave King Edward's and enter careers in many different walks of life. The vast majority will go on to some of the best Universities in the country, Oxford, Cambridge, Durham, Bristol, Imperial College London, Nottingham, Leeds, Manchester, Exeter and many others. Many will then go on to forge high flying careers in far flung parts of the globe and our network of alumni stretches from Horncastle to Hong Kong, Market Rasen to Massachusetts and Louth to London.
