School Facilities


There are 96 classrooms available to students at our Hill Lane site. All classrooms are large and fully equipped with technology and facilities to assist students' learning, including science labs, dedicated music practice rooms, recently extended and renovated art studios and ICT rooms. 

Sixth Form Centre 

We are delighted to have opened an award-winning, completely redeveloped concourse for all Sixth Formers in September 2022. The space provides our Sixth Form students with a modern, versatile and purpose designed hub from which students can work, socialise and relax. The centre is completely laptop friendly, with printing facilities, ample desk space, individual booths and group tables, perfect for collaborative working. The exciting addition of our brand new café provides students with the chance to make themselves drinks and snacks whenever they’re in need of a pick-me-up as well as a 'grab and go' lunch service. 

Main Hall 

The Main Hall is one of the original features at our school site, and has not changed much since 1938. Steeped in history, the walls are covered in honours boards, but today is used prominently as the school’s assembly hall. 

Dining Room

The Dining Rooms sits adjacent to the Main Hall, in the centre of the school and went underwent renovation in 2018. The space, is used by students before school for breakfast, during lunchtime and for cookery clubs. The dining hall is operated by Sodexo, who supply students with food daily.


The Lovaton Rural Study Centre was purchased in 2004. Located near Yelverton on Dartmoor, it has easy access to the moor, and was converted to provide an offsite facility for twenty-four students including accommodation, a refectory, a study areas and drying room. It is used as a base for the Duke of Edinburgh Award as well as for academic study weekends and fieldwork. 

Duke of Edinburgh 

The Duke of Edinburgh programme is hugely valued at King Edward's, and plays a big part in the co-curricular programme; we have a well-stocked, free to loan equipment store, to support students. More information about the Duke of Edingburgh award can be found here.
