About King Ed’s

What is it that attracts people to King Edward VI College year on year?

 It’s our community, which is vibrant, diverse, and ever changing. It is the bonds we form that allow us to challenge each other, support each other, push forward and work towards the next step for everyone.

Our students form a uniquely diverse group, coming from all walks of life from across the Midlands. We celebrate our differences because it gives our vibrant community resilience and helps us to become ever more tolerant and kind. With 2400 students, you are bound to find someone like you, with the same interests and passions. Equally, you will find many more people who are different, from whom you can learn so much and learn so much about other lives. Whether in the classroom, in an enrichment session, on a sports pitch or on a trip overseas, our students work collaboratively, solving problems together, learning together, achieving together and growing together.

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.

We look forward to you starting your journey with us.
