What the school says...
As the city’s former grammar school, King Edward’s School has a very healthy tradition of nurturing academic excellence and ambition, reflected these days in the School’s consistently outstanding results which help to rank KES as one of the leading schools of its kind in the country and one of the top performing schools of any kind in the South West of England. Our pupils are bright, inquisitive and aspirational, but they also have their feet firmly on the ground and understand that individual excellence shines most brightly in the service of the collective team effort.
The ethos of the School is one that encourages all pupils to play as hard as they work and to make the most of all the wonderful opportunities here, both in and out of the classroom, that enable them to grow and thrive within a supportive and caring framework. We set the bar high, but we also give our pupils all the tools that they need to reach those ambitious standards. We aim to foster talent in all its forms and to open doors to enquiry and discovery. Independent-mindedness and creative spirit are strong suits, but so too is the sense of community that seeks to respect and value all its members.
As a family of three schools, the Pre-Prep, Junior and Senior sections of King Edward's offer an inspiring and supportive environment for children aged 3 to 18. Some join us just for the Sixth Form, many stay for their entire school career. All pupils are encouraged to be the best they can be and all are nurtured along the pathway to leading happy, fulfilled and successful lives at school and beyond. ...Read more

What The Good Schools Guide saysThe school rightly prides itself on its pastoral care. Bonding trips and activities for new groups in year 7 start a process of building a cohesive and supportive community in which pupils feel confident enough to take any concerns for themselves or others to staff. Exceptionally good collaboration between academic and pastoral staff ensures that needs are identified and supported. Oodles of teams, particularly in rugby, netball and girls’ and boys’ hockey, in fact, in just about everything except lacrosse. Sport is taken seriously...
