Welcome to King Edward VI School
King Edward VI School is an 11-18 school serving the community of Lichfield and surrounding rural areas.We want everyone in school to develop to their full potential; it is our job to ensure that students leave us as confident, life-long learners who have a strong sense of responsibility for themselves and for others.
We are a learning community with a positive, supportive and friendly environment where we take the time to get to know our students so we can support their learning and their personal development. We seek to develop a strong partnership between students, parents and the school to enable this to take place.
Our overriding aim is to provide the highest quality education for all students. We believe that every individual has potential: our commitment is to help each young person to make the most of their abilities. The majority of our students seek to continue their education with us in our Sixth Form until they are 18. Our aim is to ensure that they leave us with the knowledge, skills, confidence and love of learning that is needed to successfully complete their education and throughout their life.
Our curriculum at King Edward VI School is broad, balanced and innovative. Our students are challenged to do their best and are monitored carefully to ensure that they make good progress. In return we expect a commitment to high standards of effort and behaviour.
Learning reaches far beyond the classroom; we seek to provide an all- round education for our students. Extra-curricular activities are offered in a wide range of areas such as sport and the arts. There is also an extensive range of educational visits and events both locally and further afield. Our students are able to explore their potential and develop new skills; we encourage all students to get involved with the wider life of the school and its community.
The school’s strongest assets are its staff and students. If you are considering us as a school for your son or daughter then I would encourage you to come and visit. We hold an annual Open Evening for Year 6 students early in the autumn term and a Sixth Form Open Evening in November for Year 11 students. Visits linked to in-year admissions can be arranged by appointment.
