Academic

King Edward’s has an outstanding record of academic achievement and is amongst the top co-educational independent schools in the country. Our aim is to encourage you to develop a life-long love of learning supported by a disciplined yet enjoyable approach to your studies.

The teachers are highly qualified, talented and dedicated. They will give you the skills and confidence to fulfil your potential with the focus on the pursuit of excellence and individual achievement. Small teaching groups, supported by the very latest technology and modern facilities, make for a demanding and stimulating learning environment where everyone can thrive.

The curriculum follows the normal path to GCSEs in Year 11 and A-Levels in the Sixth Form, but every effort is made to teach according to pupils’ abilities, and to stretch our pupils beyond the demands of the syllabus. The assistant Headmaster (Academic) oversees all academic matters and reports directly to the Headmaster. Teaching is organised in academic departments, details of which can be found in the menu on the left of this page.

We will endeavour to ensure that wherever your strengths lie, they are developed to the best of your ability.
