King Edward VI School - Admissions

Year 7 Entry

Virtual Open Morning
Unfortunately due to the government restrictions relating to the Coronavirus, we are unable to hold our annual Open Morning for prospective students applying for entry into Year 7 in September 2021 or conduct tours of the School.

We hope, however, that the following film, as well as this website and the School's Twitter feed @KES_Stratford, gives you a flavour of the School. If you wish to receive more information, please request an information pack by clicking on the link below:
