Open Evening - Book Now

Our annual Open Evening, which takes place in October, provides the perfect, and informal, chance for families to experience life at King Edward’s. During the event, we use the entire school site, allowing families to see all of our impressive facilities, as well as subject areas and classrooms. Visitors will be given a map of the school upon entry, and have the option to be guided around the school by one of our students, who can share their personal experience of settling into life at KES. Students will show you our brand new (opened September 2022) Sixth Form Concourse and Gym, as well as our Wellbeing Centre, sports facilities and the Library.

All staff at King Edward’s will be on-hand throughout the evening, providing families with the opportunity to ask about the curriculum, pastoral support, learning needs, applications, funding, finance and more. Mr Parker will also be providing a couple of talks from the Dobson Theatre; which families are able to book. The Senior Leadership Team, Heads of Departments and Heads of Year will also be on hand throughout the evening.

The 2022 Open Evening will take place on Friday 7th October from 6.00 pm to 8.30 pm. To secure your tickets to this event, click here
