What says..

Masses of artwork and displays everywhere – the school is constructed to encourage this, and the whole environment is both absolutely child friendly and encourages ecological awareness. Divided from the main school by a band of trees, the site, overlooking Bath’s panorama, has a wildlife meadow, delightful wild pond and lots of wonderful stone blocks and trees for climbing. Adventure is encouraged, though carefully supervised. The latest project is the greenhouse, where children are growing their own veg – tomatoes from last year were still going when we visited...

What the school says...

The Junior School is a thriving co-educational day school. Academic standards are high and success is celebrated across all our children's achievements. Pupils are encouraged to 'have a go' and take full advantage of the wide range of opportunities available, both inside and outside the classroom. Art, drama, music and sport are all strengths of the school. The school enjoys excellent facilities and benefits greatly from access to the senior school facilities. Provision for children with learning support needs has been greatly developed in recent years and a team of four specialist staff now support children with conditions such as dyslexia, dyspraxia and autistic spectrum disorders. Children enjoy their time at King Edward's Junior School becoming confident and competent young learners ready to progress to the senior school.

King Edward's Pre-Prep and Nursery is part of the family of King Edward's Schools. The Pre-Prep and Nursery is a happy, secure and stimulating environment where young learners can thrive. Nurturing and enthusiastic teachers encourage the children providing the best start possible for happy learners. The Pre-Prep is well equipped. The attractive enclosed grounds include an environmental pond and wildlife area plus play equipment which provides the children with opportunities for quiet activities, group games, imaginative play, climbing, balancing & physical challenge. Children are encouraged to develop independence and skills at their own pace, whilst always having access to the provision of new opportunities and experiences. They receive individual support from fully qualified and dedicated staff.
