Overseas applicants

Pupils from 45 countries study at King Edward's

We hope they will leave us having achieved and contributed more than they could ever have expected. We truly value the contribution that our international pupils make and celebrate the richness of experience and different perspectives that they offer to the School as a whole.

Pupils come to us from 45 countries and make up around 38% of the School pupil body. They can join us at 11+, 13+ or 16+, although we will consider entry at other ages. We know what a challenge it is to arrive at a new school in a new country and we do all we can to help them settle in, make friends and feel at home. They will join the same boarding houses as English students so have plenty of opportunity to become fluent in English. Equally, they are encouraged to take part in and benefit from all that life here has to offer.
