About the school
Founded in 1883, King Edward VI High School for Girls (KEHS) is one of the elite academic schools in the country....and so much more besides.
Sharing a beautiful 50-acre site in Edgbaston with King Edward's School (KES), the leading boys' school, our mission is to offer an unrivalled education to the brightest girls in and around Birmingham irrespective of their social or economic background.
Consistently outstanding results are not the sole focus of life at KEHS; they are the natural consequence of an inspiring, broad and interconnected education which enables all girls to make excellent progress and develop their individual strengths and passions.
