At King Edward VI School we believe that all students are entitled to educational provision which enables them to develop their full potential and to work at the highest level in line with their ability and interest. We believe this should take place across all areas of academic achievement but should also be part of their personal and social development. Our Core Values are Respect, Aspiration and Creativity. We place strong emphasis on the highest standards of behaviour and courtesy. We enjoy working with young people and preparing them to take their place as global citizens of the twenty-first century. The school has a large and vibrant sixth form with a strong record of sending students to higher education.
We also have a stunning staff team here with a strong commitment to high quality teaching and learning, backed by high quality support for students, governors and parents. We have a belief that a good school is about developing the whole person, within and beyond the classroom.
In our most recent Ofsted inspection (December 2013), the school was graded as ‘good - students show exemplary attitudes to their learning and strive to do their best. Behaviour during lessons and around the school is excellent, and students feel safe in school.’ ‘The sixth form is outstanding; the study programme is taught exceptionally well.’ Our most recent exam results show that the school continues to make good progress.
