King Edward VI Grammar School Chelmsford

Ofsted Report

"King Edward VI Grammar School is an exceptional place for pupils to learn. Pupils thrive in the school. They are challenged by staff to be the best they can be, both academically and as kind, respectful members of the community. Pupils and their parents support the school’s vision and positive values.

Pupils feel safe and are well cared for by staff. Pupils of all ages care about each other. Strong support systems help pupils if they are worried. Pupils respect each other’s differences and celebrate the school’s diverse community. Hurtful views or attitudes are not tolerated by anyone, at any time. Bullying rarely happens. If it does, it is dealt with swiftly and effectively.

Around the school, pupils’ behaviour is exemplary. Pupils know that they are at school to work hard. They enjoy school life and the rich variety of clubs, societies and experiences. From the combined cadet force to sports and chess clubs, there is something for everyone to do that interests or challenges them.

Many pupils continue their studies at the school’s sixth form. It is a warm and welcoming community. Students have highly positive attitudes to their learning. They are excellent role models for younger pupils."
