King Edward VI Five Ways School

Scotland Lane Bartley Green Birmingham West Midlands B32 4BT

“King Edward VI Five Ways School has a distinguished history in Birmingham and beyond going back to its establishment as a King Edward Foundation Grammar School in 1883 at Five Ways in the City Centre. It has always been at the leading edge of educational progress yet conscious of its historic roots and traditions. Today we are the largest co-educational state grammar school in the West Midlands offering able girls and boys from a wide catchment area (in and outside Birmingham) the opportunity to develop and fulfil their potential in an attractive environment, with outstanding facilities. We are in the top five co-ed grammar schools nationally and we pride ourselves on the young adults who leave us prepared academically, but more importantly, possessing the skills and confidence to take their place as adults in the 21st century.”
