From 3rd Form (Year 9) upwards, day and boarding pupils belong to a Senior House, under the care of a Housemaster or Housemistress, Matron and other resident staff.
The unique paired Houses, which share common rooms, a kitchen, television and music rooms, allow girls and boys to mix naturally. This is particularly valued by parents, since sons and daughters can be placed in adjacent Houses. There are four-bed rooms for 3rd and 4th Form pupils, while 5th and Lower Sixth pupils have shared study bedrooms. Upper Sixth normally have single study rooms.
Within Senior Houses there are further opportunities for developing skills in pastoral care and leadership to Prefect level. Inter-House sports, music and drama competitions are regular features of the school year. At the end of lessons each day, pupils in both Lower School and Senior Houses are welcome to stay for tea, prep and social activities within their House. For boarders, weekend leave may be taken by arrangement. King Edward’s location offers easy access to Godalming, Guildford, London and beyond.
