On education:

'Children, especially able children, should develop a passion  for something other than school;

if we can give our children

a skill, a hobby or an interest then you have not just an able and skilled 

      adult but an interesting team                             player  as well'                  

King Edward’s is an exciting place to be. Our school heritage goes back to 1551 and beyond and throughout that time the school has survived by listening, learning, changing and adapting. The challenges of today makes these principles all the more important to ensure that every voice in our community is valued.

King Edward’s may have been around longer than many schools but our focus is always on the future; whether that is on developing our site and our buildings or leading the way in eLearning and Webinars. We are committed to retaining the important aspects of our heritage, and aspects of the traditional grammar school ethos whilst embracing the changes of the modern world.

At the heart of the King Edward’s experience are three core values; they are the Holistic, the Academic, and a commitment to a broad Education.

Our Holistic approach means that to leave King Edward’s with only a good set of grades would be to have missed the point of being at King Edward’s.   Students can enjoy a wealth of opportunities with us in the Arts, Music, Drama, Sport, Combined Cadet Force, Duke of Edinburgh and many many more activities, trips and events.

We are of course first and foremost an academic school and proud of our grammar school heritage.  The children who join us in Year 7 and in Year 12 share a common academic bond that creates a unique relaxed atmosphere of tolerance and respect. Thanks to this academic atmosphere we are fortunate to operate as a largely self-regulating family.

We are proud and passionate about helping each individual across the finishing line.  Our expert and highly qualified staff are subject specialists, often working as examiners or lead examiners, researchers, trainers or authors in their subject area.

Finally, and most importantly all of this is wrapped up in our commitment to educate for life not just train for exams. This important but subtle distinction is at the heart of our commitment to children.
