About King Ed’s

Proud of our history, excited by our future.

At King Ed’s our holistic approach to A level education helps to develop skills for success: year on year our students do better in Higher Education than their peers from other sectors – including fee-paying schools. We offer not just a fantastic choice of subjects, but also an education focused on creating the conditions for a successful and fulfilling life.

Our ethos is shaped by our commitment to student success. We have a team of experienced and skilled teaching staff, many of whom are experts in their fields: they design rigorous lessons, tailored to student needs, ensuring an experience that offers lots of challenge and lots of support. They are passionate about their subjects, ensuring dynamic and thought-provoking learning experiences for students. Their expertise in understanding memory and the building blocks of thinking fosters learning that is both intellectually stimulating and highly effective.

We encourage you to take risks, become unafraid of failure and to be courageous in your approach to your studies, your wider life and in your thinking about the future. Teaching, support and operational staff work hard to continually deliver their best. Their respect for and investment in their colleagues, the students and for your learning journey provides inspiration and care. Lessons are planned and delivered with passion and staff have the skill to adapt to bring the very best out of everyone. This teamwork allows us to provide students with the very best support and education we can provide. The campus provides a safe and welcoming environment for all. However, for us, it’s more about the people within and their collective approach to push the limits and to keep delivering great results and great outcomes for young people year on year.

Our curriculum is comprehensive, designed to challenge and inspire. We offer a wide range of subjects, catering to the diverse interests and aspirations of our students. From the sciences to the arts, our courses are structured to provide a deep understanding of the subject matter, while also encouraging critical thinking and creativity.

We understand that brilliance comes in many forms and proudly welcome students from all walks of life, recognising that each individual brings unique perspectives and strengths to our community. We are not just about high test scores; we care about potential, ambition, and the desire to grow.

Our students are diverse – they are artists, scientists, thinkers, and leaders, each with their own story and aspirations. This rich tapestry of backgrounds and experiences makes King Ed’s an inspiring and inclusive place to learn.

Beyond academics, King Ed’s is a hub for personal development. We believe in the holistic development of our students, providing many opportunities to engage in extracurricular activities, community work, and leadership roles. Our award-winning careers guidance helps with navigating the complexities of higher education and career choices, combining one-on-one guidance and partnerships with leading employers like HSBC and NHS to prepare students for future independence.

Our campus is designed to enhance learning and connection. It is equipped with great facilities, from modern classrooms to specialised laboratories and creative spaces. There are lots of spaces for students to engage in private study, and to spend time with friends.

We invite you to join our community of independently-minded learners, thinkers and leaders – come and do what inspires you!
