Values and vision
The King Edward VI School prides itself on having high expectations for all its students. It offers what it considers to be a coherent, challenging and personalised curriculum which it thinks will allow students to develop their own individual skills and abilities. At the school, there is also a desire for all pupils to leave with qualifications reflecting their potential and the skills to be responsible citizens and successful learners in their lives beyond school. The school also aims for its students to accept responsibility for what they do and to demonstrate leadership qualities.
“Teachers are highly skilled and enthusiastic; they are relentless in their drive to help students to achieve their very best. Students behave extremely well in and out of classrooms. They show high levels of respect and self-discipline at all times. Excellent pastoral care ensures that they feel safe and are safe in school. Middle leaders are unwavering in their drive to bring about further improvement and learn from each other’s excellent practices.”
