King Edward VI Academy

King Edward VI offers every child the opportunity to fulfil their academic, creative and sporting potential to ensure each and every child achieves academic success.


We offer lots of activities and clubs so that students can discover their passions and interests inside and outside the classroom.

The academy offers a wide range of music activities, which develop the all-round potential of our students.

A range of music teachers visit the academy and lessons are offered free of charge in woodwind, brass, keyboard, guitar, percussion, violin and voice. It is our aim that, through curriculum-based lessons, our students will experience a wide variety of musical education and have ample opportunities to participate in practical and theatrical work.

The academy has the benefit of a sound and vision recording studio, which is available for use by students – especially those in music and performing arts and the local community.

Please see our news pages to find out about what are students are doing.

Community Programmes

The academy's site and buildings occupy a large area, dedicated to supporting King Edward VI students and its extended community.

We hope that, in addition to the sports facilities, the theatre and its associated arts facilities, will be able to support a wider community use. For further information please contact the academy.
