The schools of King Edward VI should be rooted in the communities that they serve and be responsive to the nature of those communities. In particular, all of the schools are committed to making themselves as accessible as possible to all pupils, whatever their background or circumstances

Statement of Values

The following principles are fundamental to the Foundation and its schools:
