We are rightly proud of our Grammar School heritage.

As an academic institution we attract bright minds into both the student and staff body who are keen to learn and eager to share.  

 

Students who join us in Year 7 pass the 11+ and are normally performing at the highest levels in their primary school.  There is no such thing as a typical grammar school student at King Edward’s and we thrive on the social diversity that our broad catchment area provides: children join us from North East Lincolnshire; Market Rasen; Louth and its villages, and also from as far afield as Mablethorpe and Horncastle.

Our curriculum provides academic challenge both at Year 7 and entry at Year 12.  Our curriculum is built on a two year foundation KS3 in Year 7 & Year 8 in preparation for a deeper three year KS4 curriculum in Year 9,10 and 11.  By adopting this approach we have enabled able students to spend more time exploring the GCSE curriculum in a deeper way rather than accelerating them through early examinations.

 

At both GCSE and A Level we offer a broad range of subjects covering the traditional through to the more vocational/artistic such as Art, Media Studies and Photography.

 

In all year groups students enjoy academic support from expert teachers who are highly qualified subject specialists.  Many of the teaching staff are examiners and lead examiners for the main exam boards and some are also writers and researchers in their field.

 

All staff are keen to pass on their passion and enthusiasm for their subject.
