Welcome to the King Edward’s Virtual Sixth Form Open Evening. Our YouTube live stream, featuring Sixth Form staff and pupils, will be live on this page on Wednesday 2nd December at 6:00pm. Please find below tours of our Senior Boys’ and Girls’ Houses and the whole School, as well as videos from each of our Heads of Department paired with information about their respective A-level and IB courses. For any questions relating to Sixth Form please contact Head of Sixth Form Mr Davies and for any questions relating to joining the School please contact our Admissions Department.
The Sixth Form at King Edward’s is an exciting, dynamic and incredibly diverse learning environment in which pupils from over 20 countries come together to develop the skills, knowledge and understanding that will empower them to succeed when they embark on Higher Education and build their subsequent careers. Established over 450 years ago to provide training for disadvantaged boys in London, the School has a history of innovation which it has continued by pioneering the International Baccalaureate alongside A-levels, to give pupils flexibility to follow a course that best suits them, and through transitioning to an online learning platform during the COVID pandemic. Alongside your academic endeavours you will follow a rich extracurricular programme predicated on sports, music, the arts and inter-House competitions. Staying true to the School’s founding mission, all pupils are also encouraged to complete a Service Programme where they pursue an altruistic cause, for instance improving the School’s sustainability footprint or supporting a local care home. To guide you through your learning journey, you will be supported by an experienced Sixth Form tutor as well as outstanding House staff. As you start to look ahead to the future, our dedicated Head of Careers and Higher Education is on hand to help you navigate the perils of university admissions and target your career pathway. Please scroll further down this page to see subject information for all IB and A-level options we offer.
