About the School

King Edward VI Aston School is a wonderful place to work and learn. It has been one of the schools in the King Edward VI Foundation since it opened in 1883 as a grammar school for boys, and is still located on its original site.

The school vision is to provide a first-class education to all learners in an inclusive and caring environment. Supported by an outstanding enrichment programme, their aim is to ensure that every student develops into an articulate, confident and compassionate young man. This well-rounded education is very important to King Edward VI School Aston and is driven by their four key values of diligence, honesty, integrity and kindness.

Aston has deep roots in its community and is proud to work in collaboration with a whole host of partners, including a local School Sports Partnership and the nationally acclaimed Swire Chinese Language Foundation. This wider 'family' of partners supports the fantastic teaching which takes place in their classrooms throughout the academic year. King Edward VI School Aston is insistent on the highest standards of effort, uniform and behaviour to ensure that academic outcomes are the very best they can be. Every year, students leave to attend the highest performing universities in the country.

Although the students' academic performance is incredibly important, they understand that all young people face difficulty in their lives at some point. Consequently, King Edward VI School Aston has a team of dedicated pastoral and support staff who work tirelessly to ensure that well-being, both in terms of physical and mental health, is nurtured and developed.

Success has always been a factor of teamwork and collaboration. When visitors come to Aston, they frequently comment on how friendly the school is.
