About us

King Edward VI High School for Girls is a high performing independent school for pupils aged 11 to 18 with the capacity to transform the lives of the bright, multi-talented girls who come here from an extraordinary range of backgrounds.

Our girls achieve outstanding results, but we are about so much more than outstanding examination results and places at top universities. We provide a richly varied and exciting education in a friendly, nurturing environment.

We want to fire girls’ imaginations and arouse their intellectual curiosity. We know our girls will be tomorrow’s leaders and we want to help them develop the drive and skills they will need for the world of work, together with the confidence to aim high and pursue their ambitions with determination and enthusiasm.

This is a unique school; the girls’ intellectual rigour, the questions they ask, the music they make, their love of sport and the interest they demonstrate for the world around them through fundraising and community links, all demonstrate what makes King Edward VI High School for Girls distinctive.

This website offers a glimpse into life at KEHS but, if you are considering our school for your daughter, the best way to find out more is to visit us and meet our inspirational staff and girls. You can find details of our Open Events on the website or contact our registrar to arrange a tour.

The website is also for those who are already part of the KEHS community. The school calendar, letters for parents, the latest news from around school and a host of other useful information can be found as you navigate around the site.
