The Curriculum

We offer (I)GCSE qualifications and a one-year pre-sixth-form course. In the sixth-form we offer the IB, alongside a new A-level programme. In 2020, an impressive 74 per cent of subjects taken in the exam were graded at the equivalent to A-level A*-B.

Games and the Arts

With first class sports facilities, our approach is very much sport for all. First class sport, music and the arts are key to our co-curricular programme. We excel in football for both boys and girls.

Pastoral Care

High quality pastoral care is central to everything we do. All pupils are attached to boarding houses under the care of a trained housemaster or housemistress and at least three resident staff, including a matron. Additionally, every pupil has a tutor who looks after their academic welfare and co-curricular programme and deals quickly with any concerns.  Food is excellent and prepared on-site. There is a well-equipped medical centre which is staffed 24 hours a day.

University Places

The vast majority of pupils proceed to Universities including Oxbridge.

Head’s Philosophy

A good education is a foundation for life. At King Edward’s this means an exciting and challenging curriculum, a broad range of sporting, artistic, social and cultural opportunities and an environment specifically created to instigate the values of independent learning, responsibility for others and the enjoyment of challenge.
