Message from the Headteacher

Welcome to the website of The King Edmund School. This site will enable you to understand what we stand for – our vision and values – and to find all the information you are seeking.

We summarise our aims as a school by the phrase ‘IN PURSUIT OF EXCELLENCE’. We want every student to strive to achieve the very best they can, in every aspect of school life – from their studies, to participation in school shows, sporting activities, extra-curricular activities and so on.

The key to achieving this is home, student and school working in partnership. By working together, we can ensure students receive the right guidance, support and challenge to achieve their best.

The wellbeing of our students is something we also take seriously, since we want students to be happy, well-adjusted and resilient during their time at KES and beyond. A happy, secure student is far more likely to be successful throughout life. The opportunities on offer at KES, allow students to develop in this way and to develop the skills and attributes they need to face the future with confidence.

I hope that you find our website useful and informative. We are happy to receive feedback on any aspect of it. If you wish to give us feedback, please email it to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

I look forward to meeting you in the future, perhaps as a member of the school community or as a visitor interested in finding out more about the school.
