The school for adventurous minds
Where will yours take you?
Founded in 1552, KES has held a special place in the city for well over four and a half centuries and is now firmly established as one of the leading schools in the south-west of England. As a family of three schools, the Pre-Prep, Junior and Senior sections of King Edward's offer an inspiring and supportive environment for children age 3 to 18. All pupils are encouraged to be the best they can be and all are nurtured along the pathway to leading happy, fulfilled and successful lives at school and beyond.
As the city’s former grammar school, KES has a very healthy tradition of nurturing academic excellence and ambition, reflected these days in the School’s consistently outstanding results which routinely rank it within the top five independent schools in the south-west.
Our pupils are bright, inquisitive and aspirational, but they also have their feet firmly on the ground.
The ethos of the School is one that encourages all pupils to make the most of all the wonderful opportunities on offer, both in and out of the classroom, that enable them to grow and thrive within a supportive and caring framework. We aim to foster talent in all its forms and to open doors to enquiry and discovery. Independent-mindedness and creative spirit are strong suits, but so too is the sense of community that seeks to respect and value all its members. All pupils are encouraged to be the best they can be and all are nurtured along the pathway to leading happy, fulfilled and successful lives at school and beyond.
