We also welcome applications from parents and carers of children who are not currently in our feeder schools.

If you have any queries regarding the application process, please contact County Hall and ask for the School Admissions team.

KEVI chosen to help train the next generation of teachers

NationalTeachingSchoolThe King Edward VI School has been selected to become a National Teaching School.

Teaching Schools take a leading role in recruiting and training new entrants to the profession, identifying leadership potential and providing support for other schools, not least by exemplifying excellent standards of teaching.

The King Edward VI School is one of 52 schools in England to be granted teaching school status in the latest round.

Introduced in 2011, Teaching Schools are all rated as “outstanding”. They work with partner schools in an alliance to ensure high quality school-led initial teacher training and professional development opportunities for teachers at all stages of their career.

They raise standards through supporting other schools, engage in research and development, and ensure that the most talented school leaders are spotted and supported to become successful headteachers.
