Exam Results

King Edward’s is an academic school admitting pupils with a broad range of ability. In common with many top schools we do not participate in league tables of results, which we believe to be misleading. However, we understand our IB results place us among the top co-educational boarding and day schools in the UK and almost all our pupils proceed to a university of their choice.
