What the school says...

Whilst ensuring an excellent academic experience, King Edward VI School also offers a diverse and exciting co-curricular programme. Pupils and staff participate in fieldwork, charitable and sporting visits in different parts of the world from Mexico and South Africa to Canada and the Caribbean to name but a few.

Life at King Edward’s is further enriched by the many music, drama and sporting opportunities on offer. These activities remain an integral part of School life and pupils are actively encouraged to fulfil their potential in each of these areas. Many talented pupils compete or perform at extraordinarily high levels, including nationally. Over 60 clubs and societies provide students with the opportunity to get involved in a wealth of activities whilst the range of School trips on offer is exceptional. Students are also actively engaged in a wide range of charitable and community projects.

Special Education Needs

The School has limited facilities for the disabled but will do all that is reasonable to comply with its legal and moral responsibilities under the SENDA 2001 in order to accommodate the needs of pupils who have disabilities for which, with reasonable adjustments, the School can cater. On entry to the School all pupils are screened in literacy, and support is given on an individual basis by regular members of the teaching staff to those pupils who would benefit from extra assistance. There is also a limited amount of support for pupils who have difficulties with numeracy skills. All members of the teaching staff are regularly updated on the requirements and needs of pupils who are receiving support or have a particular need in the classroom. 09-09
