There are many reasons why parents choose King Edward's time and time again, but the ten points below are the reasons most often cited by parents when we asked. First and foremost parents like our balanced approach to education and individuals rather than an obsession with specifications or draconian regimes.


Our students are encouraged to be successful in all areas of life as well as the academic.  This is why we don't favour early entry and don't try and ram additional qualifications into our timetable. We believe that by doing this we are helping to develop real life skills of leadership and teamworking rather than completing another qualification. Time and again, it is the combination of excellent academic results balanced with broad enrichment opportunities in a safe family atmosphere that parents cite as the single key reason for choosing King Edward's.


We have gained a number of different accolades and achievements and these include:


  i) being rated Outstanding by OFSTED in every one of their categories


 ii) being highest out of Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire 83 secondary schools and FE Colleges for University success rates


iii) being one of the UK's top 200 Schools and a High Performing Specialist School in Science and Mathematics


iv) our International Schools Award and Gold Award for Equality and Diversity underpin our encoragement for a wider view of the world
