A Virtual Information Evening with the Heads

On June 29 2021, we held a virtual information evening, providing information and insight into King Edward VI School and Stroud, our preparatory school, what makes them so special, an outline on school life and the 3-18 educational experience offered. Chaired by King Edward’s Registrar, Mrs Sheppard, the event was streamed live from our state-of-the-art Dobson Theatre and we were joined by Mr Parker, Head of King Edward’s and Mrs Smith, Headmistress of Stroud. We invite you to watch a recording of the session, which can be found below.

We also invite everyone to explore our school and facilities virtually with our 360 tour. If you have any questions about King Edward’s and admissions, please don’t hesitate to email Mrs Sheppard at registrar@kes.hants.sch.uk.
