Admissions Policy

Admission to K.E.S. in Year 7 is by a selective entrance procedure administered by the Local Authority on the School’s behalf. Warwickshire Admissions are also responsible for the administration of all occasional vacancy admissions to the School and should be contacted in the first instance. The School administers its own admissions to the Sixth Form, details of which can be found below.

On Thursday 6th April 2017 the Governing Body of King Edward VI School decided to raise the Published Admission Number from 81 to 87 for Year 7 Entry from September 2017.
