The school selects girls by means of a competetive academic test. The curriculum provides for the needs of those girls, some of whom are exceptionally gifted and are catered for through a variety of curricular and extra curricular, formal and informal opportunities. The teaching staff are chosen as those most likely to meet the needs of academic girls. The turbulent years of adolescence mean girls will often experience emotional highs and lows and staff are committed to and experienced in supporting girls at those times, in the various forms the emotional difficulties might take.
“King Edward VI High School for Girls is one of the country’s leading girls’ schools and provides a rich and varied education that enables bright girls from a wide range of backgrounds to excel and thrive.
