Welcome to our website. We are a proudly comprehensive 11-18 high school, working in partnership with the primary and special schools in and around Bury St Edmunds, to provide great education and uplifting opportunities for children from 4 to 18.

Our school exudes a passion for learning, has high expectations of behaviour and courtesy, offers an unrivalled range of extra-curricular activities, and gains GCSE and A-level results that reflect the superb teaching of our talented staff team. But don’t take our word for it. Come and visit us.

What a half term we have had.  Our younger students have impressed and inspired us with their outlook and energy.  Our older students have demonstrated continued commitment to their GCSE and A-level preparation.  Together, they have created a happy and purposeful atmosphere in which to learn.

We are delighted with the number of students taking part in enrichment activities; they are enjoying life at King Edward VI all the more for it.  We have just launched the eleventh year of our celebrated partnership with the Yangjing-Juyuan Experimental School, Shanghai and also ‘Operation Wallacea’, our conservation research trip to Madagascar 2018.  Soon you will hear about ‘This Girl Can’ – our project aimed at building the skill, confidence and participation of girls in physical activity.

In the mean time we wish our all our students and staff a happy and restful half-term break.
