Our pupils are talented academically, but they are also encouraged to be intellectually curious and questioning and to take an active role in their own learning.

Academic study at King Edward’s encourages critical thinking and interconnectivity between subjects. Results are important but we want our pupils to develop a love of learning that will stay with them for life.

Lower school

In the first three years boys study a broad curriculum alongside the core academic subjects and a great deal of time is set aside for the creative subjects: Art, Music, Design, Drama, and for Sport and PE. 

Latin is compulsory for three years and in Year 9 boys can take up Spanish, German or Ancient Greek.

“One particularly captivating subject at our school is ‘School for Thought’. This subject is truly fascinating as it stimulates and expands our thinking capabilities, allowing us to develop a more dynamic and imaginative mind.”

Boys take 10 subjects at GCSE and we firmly believe there is no need to take more than this. English language, English literature, Maths, one language and at least two sciences are compulsory and boys can choose three or four subjects from the following: Art, Ancient Greek, Design and Technology, Drama, Geography, German, History, Latin, Music, Religious Studies and Spanish.

Sixth Form

In the Sixth Form all pupils study the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, an internationally recognised education that is designed to provide an intellectual challenge and preparation for a global future.
