School Tours

Thank you very much indeed to everyone who came to our recent Open Evening. We absolutely loved showing you our wonderful school. In case you couldn’t make it, students and staff are always on hand to give tours to children, along with their parents/carers, who are interested in joining us at King Edward VI School.

Our Tour Guides are friendly, confident students in Years 7, 8 and 9 who will help you 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.  Most importantly, perhaps, they will answer the questions you and your child may have about life at King Edward VI School.

We will be running the last of our October tours at 9.30am on Tuesday 30 October but please do contact us if you would like a tour at another time.

If having a relaxed walk around the school – while gaining a sense of the calm and creative atmosphere – appeals to you, then please do not hesitate to get in contact: or 01284 761393.

GCSE Results 2018:

We are thrilled to be celebrating a momentous set of results, which are 8% higher than last year’s. 76% of our 306 students achieved a 4 or better in English and Maths.This achievement is a credit to our students and staff, all of whom work incredibly hard. It is great to be part of this very special school, and to know we’ve made a real difference for these highly talented young people. We are hugely grateful to parents and carers who provide essential support and play such a crucial role throughout the journey. Results are very strong across so many of our subjects, and we are delighted that our students have embraced our core value of aspiration so wholeheartedly.
