From the Headteacher

As the new school year begins we are looking forward to new opportunities, and reflecting on our hopes and aspirations for the future. We are committed to helping each and every individual at King Edward VI School to thrive. We are focused on the pursuit of the highest academic and personal standards.  We are continuing to place a huge emphasis on developing balanced individuals who demonstrate diversity of ambition, and who are keen to develop their talents across our wide-ranging curriculum.

In the coming weeks, we look forward to hosting our Fresher’s Fayre (an opportunity for students to find out about our extra-curricular and leadership opportunities), our Year 10 GCSE Information Evening (25 September), our Year 11 Exam Success Evening (10 October), and our Awards Evening (6 November). We will also be welcoming staff and students from our partner school in Shanghai for the 12th year of our International Leadership Exchange.

There are a number of opportunities for you to see us at work this term:

Open Evening

Our Open Evening is on Thursday 3 October from 6-8pm. Do come along to find out about our school, to meet our teachers and students, and to visit our school’s departments. I will make two presentations over the course of the evening giving you an insight into our school’s ethos and values.

Daytime Tours

We are running a series of daytime group tours for parents and carers of Year 6 children. If you would like to see the school in action then please contact Mrs Dunning on 01284 761393, ext. 252 or by email

Our Tour Guides are friendly, confident students in Years 7, 8 and 9 who will help you to form an impression of our wonderful school. They will show you our bespoke science, art, design and sporting facilities, as well as introducing you to members of our leadership, teaching and support teams.

Places are limited and booking is essential.

I look forward to meeting you soon.

To All our Year 11 and Year 13 students

We would love you to stay in touch with our school so that we can keep you informed of future events and news and, of course, celebrate your next steps and future achievements.

We always welcome former students at King Edward VI and the opportunity for you to share your experiences going forward would be of interest and help to the students that will come after you.
