King Edward's School Home

An independent day school for boys aged 11 to 18


During any particular week at KES the amount of music being performed and indeed written is little short of remarkable. There are 12 musical ensembles which involve boys including orchestras, bands and choirs.

All pupils are warmly encouraged to take up or continue playing a musical instrument, either taught by their existing instrumental teacher at home, or by one of our 22 visiting instrumental teachers. Learning an instrument, or joining an ensemble is not compulsory, but the experience is very rich and strongly recommended.
