King Edward VI Lordswood School for Girls is a school that does not believe in standing still. We are constantly striving to improve on our previous best, be it with regard to the educational opportunities that we offer students, the school facilities or the range of innovative projects in which the school is involved.
King Edward VI Lordswood School for Girls joined the King Edward VI Academy Trust in September 2022. We look forward to the opportunities that this will provide to work with some of the best schools in Birmingham. Students will benefit from a broad range of activities which will enrich their education. In addition, our fantastic team of teachers will benefit from professional development and collaboration which will support our pupils to enjoy a rich and diverse curriculum.
We are very proud of our school and of students’ examination performance both at Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5.
So what are the factors that make us successful? We believe that the high expectations we have of all our students, the great importance placed on standards of behaviour, and the quality of teaching and learning, together with a strong partnership with parents and carers, are key contributors to our success. Similarly, a differentiated and varied curriculum which takes account of the needs and interests of learners enables all students to progress onto meaningful pathways, be it Post 16 or Post 18. At the end of Year 11, the majority of students progress to the Lordswood Sixth Form which also has a proven track record in examination success and in ensuring that students achieve qualifications which enable progression to training, higher education or employment.
Extracurricular activities, trips and visits, and involvement in community projects all form an integral part of the King Edward VI Lordswood School for Girls experience and all students are encouraged to participate. The school has a thriving performing arts department and an increasing number of students are now involved in concerts and productions, performing at a very high standard.
