Description of the school

King Edward VI Five Ways School is of medium size with a large sixth form. It holds specialist status in humanities and science. The attainment of students on entry is well above average. Boys outnumber girls. Very few students are eligible for free school meals. A higher than average percentage of students are from minority ethnic groups, as is the case for students for whom English is not their first language. The percentage of students who have learning difficulties and/or disabilities is very small. Very few students join the school at points other than Year 7, although between 50 and 70 students join the sixth form from local schools. The level of deprivation in the school’s catchment area varies but overall is similar to the national average.
