About King Edward VI High School for Girls
King Edward VI High School for Girls is one of the country’s leading girls’ independent day schools, with a reputation for academic success and wide-ranging extra-curricular opportunities. Rated ‘excellent’ by ISI in 2010, KEHS was the first independent school to gain teaching school status in 2011. The school is located in Edgbaston on an attractive site opposite the University of Birmingham.
At KEHS we are preparing girls for a fulfilling life as 21st Century women providing students with opportunities to be independent thinkers and confident leaders. Academic scholarship, that is at the heart of KEHS, is embedded not only in practical application but in fundamental moral values that mean KEHS girls will not just be effective and successful leaders but the great leaders of the future.
At KEHS we also place a strong emphasis on Science and Technology. We are one of only a small number (around 20) of schools in the UK with a working seismometer able to detect earthquakes from around the world of magnitudes greater than 6.5. These are fairly major earthquakes and around 20 to 30 occur each year around the world. Do use our website to glimpse the many sides to life at KEHS.
