Academic

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

The teachers are highly qualified, talented and dedicated. They give pupils the skills and confidence to fulfil their potential, focusing 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 Head (Academic) oversees all academic matters and reports directly to the Head.

We endeavour to ensure that wherever a pupil’s strengths lie, these are developed to the best of their individual ability.
