About King Edward’s

King Edward’s is the leading private school in Southampton, with its own prep school and extensive facilities.  It has been part of the educational fabric of Hampshire for over 460 years. It is renowned for academic excellence, breadth of extra-curricular opportunities, and a passion for sport and artistic endeavour.

The School has excellent facilities with over £10 million invested in these over the past ten years. These give our students extensive opportunities to develop their interests in many areas of the curriculum including a wide range of clubs, societies, sports and cultural opportunities.

The School has been based on Hill Lane since 1938. With over 13 acres it contains an extensive range of facilities including a number of new additions and major refurbishments completed over the last few years. These include a professional-standard theatre, art studios, new design technology block, a refurbished dining hall, Sixth Form centre, ICT rooms, a security and access control system, and 17 science laboratories.

We also have games fields, a sports hall, netball courts and a full astro pitch on site.  The school also benefits from fantastic facilities off-site:


The Wellington ground was purchased in 2004 from the University of Southampton. It contains thirty three acres of grounds, six tennis courts, four netball courts and a water based astro pitch. A large pavilion with eighteen changing rooms, a kitchen and catering facilities for over one hundred students is also available.
