King Edward’s priority is the pupil’s well-being which is supported with a holistic approach to school life. This means an emphasis on activities that stimulate the mind, body and soul. Thanks to our enviable facilities and ample grounds we can offer opportunities for girls and boys to expand their horizons, garner experiences that complement their academic studies and develop interests that they can pursue throughout their school career and beyond.
There is a vibrant co-curricular programme at King Edward’s and it makes for a varied school life. There are a wide range of co-curricular activities in sport, art, music, drama, design technology and also a host of other options from intellectual pursuits such as Café Scientifique, mathlete training and chess to the demanding boxing fitness and Duke of Edinburgh Award and the more mindful forest school, yoga and cookery. If there is a drive and interest from pupils for additional pursuits or clubs, they will always be considered.
Beyond the school grounds, within and beyond term time, pupils can challenge themselves further and experience superb educational trips and expeditions. A broad range of opportunities are on offer including European language trips, visits to cities such as Berlin and New York and more adventurous expeditions such as the most recent trips to Russia, Iceland and India.
Please do visit our school to discover all it has to offer.
