There is so much warmth and enthusiasm at King Edward’s, driven by our whole-School approach to pastoral care. The House system is at the heart of School life, and fundamental to pupil resilience and wellbeing. It puts your child at the centre of a network of care and support. Every member of staff within that network is there to help them live life to the full – to be bold, effective and connected in School and beyond, even into the next generation.
Although we set ourselves rigorous academic targets, our approach to learning is all about personal growth. We add value as well as knowledge. We run courses, not competitions. In all areas of school life, our goal is the achievement of a personal best. By encouraging pupils to explore different aspects of their sporting, creative, spiritual and intellectual lives, we tease out a wealth of untapped potential.
Life at King Edward’s is rich with experience because pupils are happy to be stretched. They learn not to fear failure, but to see it as part of the learning experience – an opportunity to pick themselves up and try a fresh approach.
Above all, School life here is fun. We give pupils space to be themselves – to be active, thoughtful, social, studious, mindful. In this happy environment, confidence soars, children thrive, magic happens.
