Holistic, Academic, Education


Welcome from the Headmaster

King Edward's is a very special community built on firm family foundations of trust and friendship.  We have close relationships with St James' Church in Louth and music and a choral tradition remain crucial elements of our community: over a third of the school is actively involved in music in one form or another.  


Our relationships here are best described as positive and natural and they lack the stuffiness and formality often associated with other Grammar Schools.  


                                                              It is this more liberal heritage that many Ludensians are exceptionally proud of and it is one of the many

                                                                                    reasons that parents cite when they trust us to educate their son or daughter


Ultimately we are an academic school and exceptionally proud of our achievements.  However, we believe passionately that our job is to create well rounded academically able children who are confident and interesting individuals who have a spark and a passion for more than just academia:  


                                                                                                                           all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy  


Our dedicated Combined Cadet Force are committed to offering opportunities in Leadership and outstanding life experiences through the Army and RAF: our pupils genuinely fly! Our standards in both Music and Drama are professional and many of our past students have gone on to forge careers in opera, theatre and as professional musicians. Our annual school production is open to the general public and performed on a professional stage at the Riverhead Theatre: our children literally run the show.


                                           In Sport we achieve regular accolades at county level and have pupils who represent not only the county but the country


King Edward's serves many different communities that include Louth and its surrounding villages, The Wolds and Horncastle to the South, Mablethorpe to the East, Market Rasen to the West and Grimsby to the North: over 500 pupils a day travel by bus into our vibrant and thriving community.


    King Edward's is a school for everyone where ability matters more than your postcode, the car you drive, your religious beliefs,

your heritage or the job that you do
