The KES Outreach Programme provides a range of free masterclasses, workshops, competitions and concerts for local primary schools. Over 13,000 children from more than 200 schools across Birmingham and the wider region take part in our Outreach Programme each year.
Due to the current restrictions placed on schools across the UK, primary school visits are currently suspended. We remain committed to resuming a full programme of Outreach activities as soon as we are able to. We are investigating ways of providing online support for our partners schools.
The aim of the Outreach Programme is to engage with children under the age of 11 across the city and to raise their aspirations. Teachers and boys from King Edward’s School are involved in the delivery of the Programme, which is constantly added to as new ideas for activities are put into practice.
There are lots of activities for schools to get involved in, from chess tournaments and science workshops to maths competitions and music concerts. Please browse through the different activities available and do get in touch if your school would like to take part.
We do not charge for any of these activities, except for the professional development training programmes where costs are spread equally between all participating schools.
In December 2015, we were very proud to receive the award for the Best Independent-Maintained School Collaboration at the TES Independent School Awards.
