King Edward's School Witley
King Edward's School believes in a holistic approach to education and offers a blend of forward-thinking and traditional values that provides a secure environment in which young people can be nurtured through the transition to adulthood. Pupils from a very wide variety of academic, social, economic, cultural and ethnic backgrounds are successfully integrated into a community in which all individuals can thrive and where boarding and day pupils develop and grow in an atmosphere in which co-operation, mutual respect and independence of thought are highly valued. We are a well established International Baccalaureate School and we offer the IB Diploma course in our 6th Form and a pre-IB course in Form 5.
About King Edward's School WitleyKing Edward's School is a first class independent day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 11-18, where excellent facilities and dedicated teaching promote high achievement in every sphere of life. King Edward's is a successful school. Since its foundation in 1553, King Edward's has invariably been ahead of its time without losing sight of its traditional strengths. It is a co-educational school of long standing, the entire campus has been designed with co-education in mind, and most of the school's activities are geared towards mixed groups. The unique paired houses allow boys and girls to mix naturally, and are particularly valued by parents whose sons and daughters attend the school and can be placed in adjacent accommodation. Day pupil's involvement in life on campus is completely flexible, enabling them to stay on after lessons to complete their prep, take supper and participate in the many activities open to King Edward's pupils. Accommodation is available for them to stay when necessary, whether for a single night or a week or more. Those who wish to simply finish school and go straight home are equally free to do so. This genuine equality of opportunity and treatment is a distinctive, if not unique, feature of the school, which goes as far as the inclusion of all items of uniform, games kit, books and stationery in the term fees. In such a positively motivated environment it will come as no surprise to learn that pupils with special needs or learning difficulties invariably find the environment at King Edward's, with its strong pastoral and caring philosophy, one in which they, too, can thrive. The school offers a range of scholarships and bursaries to help those with particular academic, artistic or musical abilities, and others who are specifically in need of boarding education. The fact that King Edward's School was founded in 1553 does not mean we are stuck in the past, it means that we have deeper foundations on which to build our pupils' future.

What is the collective noun for a gathering of Mayors? Some suggest the ‘Chain Gang’ and others, a ‘muster’ of Mayors. Either would have aptly described the gathering of Civic representation at King Edward’s School’s impressive Speech Day on Friday, 9th July.
