We understand that choosing a school and college can sometimes seem a daunting experience but we hope that the Information Booklet below can give you a glimpse of what makes King Edward’s special. Students attend our school from all over Hampshire and our extensive bus network (including a late bus service) offers flexibility to those pupils living further afield as well as those living closer.
