What The Good Schools Guide says..
The grounds are immaculate - bravo, that delightful gardener - and the whole campus feels pleasantly contained and smartly arranged. Arriving at reception, and we did it more than once, is a delightful experience, not only because of the welcome given from behind the counter but also the smiling, friendly pupils. Head believes in trusting people, hence BYOD (bring your own device), a policy that is believed by many, though not all, to boost self-esteem. This vastly reduces time spent policing individual use of phones, tablets and laptops...

What The Good Schools Guide says
Since 2012, Mrs Yvonne Wilkinson BA PGCE NPQH. Read Geography at Northumbria University. She was the first ever female deputy and acting head at King Edward V Five Ways during an interregnum before joining Holy Trinity School Worcester as head. Then on as head to Gateways School in Leeds, a girls only senior school where she was responsible for introducing boys (up to age 11) before being invited back to Five Ways to become the first female head.
Mrs Wilkinson is, in more ways than one, the Real Thing, and is leading the school to new heights and breadth. While it's impossible to believe her career is the result of ruthless greasy pole climbing or excessive restlessness, it seems that King Edward VI Five Ways was always her Holy Grail....
Special Education Needs
Every member of staff takes responsibility for the identification of pupils with Special Needs. Subject Staff identify individuals at both ends of the scale. Where Learning Support is needed pupils are referred to the school's Learning Support specialist where appropriate targets and strategies are then put into place. If difficulties are more specific then appropriate outside agencies are brought in. These might include Dyslexia screening, Hearing and Visual Impairment teams, and Inclusion and access agencies. Exceptionally able pupils are placed on the Able and Talented Register by Departments and Activity staff, from where they are included in the school's Able and Talented programme.
