King Edward VI School (“the School”) is an academically selective co-educational independent day School for pupils aged 11-18 years.
Selection is based on academic merit, assessed through an entry examination, an interview at the School and references from a candidate’s previous school or schools.
The usual points of entry are at 11+ (Year 7), 13+ (Year 9) and 16+ (Year 12) although consideration is given to candidates at other ages if a place has become available. This policy and its procedures have been authorised by the Governing Body of the School in compliance with the Education Act 2002, the Children and Families Act 2014 and SEND Code of Practice, the Equality Act 2010 and related legislation. This policy is for guidance and will be adapted by the School from time to time as circumstances require.
