Founded in 1553 by Royal Charter in the City of London, the School is the operational arm of Bridewell Royal Hospital, a charitable foundation with assets in excess of £20m which provides for children in need of a boarding style of education. In 2016-17 the foundation provided support to over 100 pupils to attend the School.

King Edward's School is a co-educational boarding and day school for around 420 pupils, around 62% of whom are boarders. It caters for broadly equal numbers of boys and girls, with main entry points at 11+, 13+ and Sixth Form.

Around 35% of students are from abroad, from over 40 different countries. There is a Sixth Form of 170, most of who go on to universities, including Oxford and Cambridge. At the same time the curriculum is deliberately broad and suitable for pupils of differing abilities. The School has become known for its innovative approach, including in 2010 a move to the International Baccalaureate as its sole Sixth Form curriculum, only recently reversed with the advent of the reformed linear A-levels: King Edward’s is among the top 10 co-educational IB schools in the country and the Headmaster is a member of HMC. In its most recent inspection in 2015 the School was judged by ISI to be “Excellent” in all areas.

Further details of the School are to be found in the Independent Schools’ Year Book, or on our website www.kesw.org.
