King Edward’s School has been at the heart of Birmingham life since it was founded in 1552. As the city grew so did the success of the School and for over a century it has been one of the country’s leading schools; the school of Burne-Jones and Tolkien, Nobel Prizewinners Wilkins and Vane, Field Marshal Slim, Bill Oddie, Jonathan Coe and Lee Child.
