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.


Sport is a really important part of school life at King Edward.

Sport is an integral part of the academy and we try to offer the widest variety possible to our students.

The sports programme varies over the year according to season, but in addition to regular PE in the curriculum we have our enrichment programme which includes activities suitable for all ages, abilities and interests.

The Sports Enrichment Programme allows students to participate in an array of sports and experiences. Specialist coaches are regularly brought in for these sports in order to give the students the best possible experience.

We also run a vast array of house competitions throughout the year for all students to be involved in.
