Part of what gives King Edward’s School its unique character is the exciting and diverse range of co-curricular opportunities on offer. We strive to have the widest range of activities so that every boy can find at least one thing that enlivens and enriches his life.
We take pride in the breadth of sport we offer, from competitive inter-school competitions to friendlier House events, we aim to make sport accessible for every pupil. Major sports offered include rugby, hockey and cricket, though there are many other options available.
The performing arts are central to the lives of many pupils at King Edward’s School and there is a wealth of music and drama opportunities for boys to get involved in throughout their time here.
Clubs and societies provide an integral part of school life for our pupils. With around 50 to choose from, including Amnesty International, Lifeguarding and Debating, there is an opportunity for everyone.
To the pleasure of teachers and pupils alike, we do not have lessons on Friday afternoons. Instead, we offer a range of activities which we hope will further the skills of our pupils.
