King Edward's Witley
A good education is a foundation for life...
Our unique heritage and place among British co-educational independent schools means we can aim to provide the best preparation for adult life to a wider range of people than almost any other institution.
A good education is a foundation for life. At King Edward’s this means an exciting and challenging curriculum, a broad range of sporting, artistic, social and cultural opportunities and an environment which is specifically created to instigate the values of independent learning, responsibility for others and the enjoyment of challenge.
Come and see what makes King Edward’s such a distinctive and forward-looking community and such a fantastic place to live and learn. I look forward to welcoming you.

A better choice - what do parents and children want from a school?
Traditional values, beautiful surroundings, excellent facilities and wide-ranging academic, cultural and sporting opportunities are all important. But what matters most is the quality of relationships which exist in a happy, secure and caring community, where staff are dedicated to bringing out the very best in those for whom they are responsible, whatever their background or ability.
In other words, an education that gives pupils the academic qualifications to enable choice later in life, together with a set of skills, attributes and interests that will sustain them in the future.
King Edward’s history and long experience of co-education reflects what parents and pupils seek. Founded in 1553, the School has a unique place in the story of British education. Christian vision, a Tudor palace and a boy King (Edward VI) each feature in the creation of our distinctive school.
Our way of life - care and friendliness permeate our day to day life on campus.
Visitors often comment on the happy, relaxed yet purposeful and supportive atmosphere at King Edward’s. Boys and girls, some of whom are brothers and sisters, mix naturally whatever their social or cultural backgrounds. Any well-ordered community needs basic rules and leaders. We therefore try to develop leadership at all levels and an understanding of responsibility in every aspect of school life. In senior years, pupils are encouraged to take on roles within the school community to develop a sense of service to others.
Set in glorious Surrey countryside, access to the School could not be easier.
Whether you fly, drive or come by train your journey will be straightforward with excellent links to London, Heathrow and Gatwick Airports and the South Coast - all less than one hour away.
