About

King Edward’s is a prestigious boarding school founded by King Edward VI in 1553. The school has excellent on-site facilities including modern classrooms with smart boards, a
dance studio, and all-weather pitches across the 100-acre site.

Location

King Edward’s is located in a quiet countryside village just over an hour’s drive from central London, providing an ideal location for young summer school students. Nearby cities can be accessed easily including Brighton, Canterbury, Windsor and Oxford.

Accommodation

Student accommodation at King Edward’s is split into several boarding houses, named Edward, Tudor and Ridley. Bedrooms are made up of single, twin and 4-bed rooms, with separate female and male accommodation. Bathrooms are shared between 4-6 students. Laundry is available on site. Once per week, laundry will be collected by King Edward’s School staff and returned the next day.

History

In 1860, King Edward VI’s Bridewell Royal Hospital’s ‘House of Occupations’ was renamed to King Edward’s School. From the age of 10, boys and girls were taught reading, writing, arithmetic, geography and history.

In the 19th century, when pupils left the school, girls went into domestic service and the boys in city firms, factories and armed forces.

The boy’s school moved to the 100-acre Witley site with newly built accommodation and in 1952 admitted women into the school. With strong discipline, part of the curriculum was in workshops and learning about trade. In World War II, the school was used for top-secret war work including naval radar development where it is said that due to the school providing a camp, ‘the Battle of the Atlantic was won on the playing fields of Witley’.
