Welcome to King Edward’s School. Founded in 1552, KES has held a special place in Bath for well over four and a half centuries and is now firmly established as one of the leading schools of any kind in the south-west of England.

Consisting of the Pre-Prep, Junior,  Senior School and Sixth Form, KES offers an inspiring and supportive environment for children aged 3 to 18.  

As the city’s former grammar school, KES has a very healthy tradition of nurturing academic excellence and ambition, reflected these days in the School’s consistently outstanding results. Our pupils are bright, inquisitive and aspirational, but they also have their feet firmly on the ground and understand that individual excellence shines most brightly in the service of the collective team effort.

The ethos of the School is one that encourages all pupils to play as hard as they work and to make the most of all the wonderful opportunities here, both in and out of the classroom, that enable them to grow and thrive within a supportive and caring framework.
 



To find out for yourself what makes KES so special, we invite you to join us at one of our forthcoming Open Events in September 2024. Registration details below:
