About us

We take great pride in King Edward’s High School’s longstanding reputation for academic achievement. Our highly-qualified teachers look to inspire each girl’s imagination and enable her to discover and develop her intellectual passions and ambitions, alongside outstanding opportunities in music, sport, the arts and many more spheres: our rich and highly prized co-curricular programme is very much at the heart of the school. We’re delighted that the Sunday Times recently rated us number one in the Midlands Top 10 Independent Schools for our outstanding education.

We offer so much more than stellar grades and rigorous preparation for places at World Class Universities. We value each girl and help her navigate wisely the choices ahead of her at each stage, giving her the opportunities to develop her leadership and collaborative skills as well as her resilience, so that she is ready in due course to make the difference our wonderful alumnae have made over the years, on a national and global stage for girls.

KEHS is a caring and generous community, where relationships between girls and our staff are very warm. The girls are encouraged to develop a strong spirit of philanthropy, and to engage with the world outside of school. Our assisted places scheme provides us with a wonderful opportunity to offer the full breadth of our education to talented girls whatever their background.

An education at KEHS is without question an outstanding education for life, providing opportunities that few can match. You are very welcome to visit our distinctive school and meet our impressive girls and staff. I look forward to meeting you!
