Mission Statement

Mission Statement

King Edward VI School is committed to being the school of choice for the most able students in our locality by developing and maintaining an educational community in which we:

  • provide the context to allow all individuals to achieve success in all aspects of school life;
  • create a safe and secure environment in which self-confidence, respect for oneself and for others is valued;
  • encourage each individual to fulfil their academic potential by placing particular emphasis on challenge, teamwork, independence, creativity and enjoyment;
  • appreciate the value of extra-curricular activities and encourage – equally – wide participation and excellence;
  • use open lines of communication and engagement across all interested parties to ensure we are a
    self-evaluative school, which constantly looks to improve.

We seek to prepare our students for rewarding lives, aware of their obligation to serve the local, national and international communities in a fast changing world, and to inculcate in them a sense of pride in the unique character of Shakespeare’s School.
