During the Sixth Form many opportunities present themselves. They get the chance to lead: on the sports fields, in the school societies or as a group prefect working with younger pupils.

They also get the chance to be creative: producing and acting in plays or playing music. Travel will widen their experience of the world – recently our sixth formers have visited projects in Indonesia and South Africa. In and outside the classroom, King Edward’s sixth formers are encouraged to take the opportunities that are on offer.

6th Form Games

Every 6th Former takes part in Wednesday afternoon games program. The following list varies from term to term but gives a flavour of the range of activities available:

  • Hockey
  • Rugby
  • Canoeing
  • Climbing
  • Football
  • Cricket
  • Netball
  • Weights
  • Basketball
  • Golf
  • Squash
  • Sailing

Clubs and Societies

Sixth formers are encouraged to develop their particular interests in lunchtime clubs, such as the Historical Society, where they might make presentations to their peers. They take a leading role in the running and organisation of these clubs. The following list is by no means exhaustive!

  • Historical Society
  • English Society
  • Debating Society
  • Byron Society


Many of the sixth formers are members of the senior sporting squads, playing fixtures during the Wednesday afternoon games sessions, and also on Saturdays. We have a full fixture list in all the major sports, and sixth formers are encouraged to challenge themselves to contribute to these squads.
