Welcome to King Edward VI Handsworth School for Girls

A very warm welcome to the King Edward VI Handsworth School for Girls website! I hope you will absorb some of our school’s special atmosphere. Academic achievement at the highest levels is at the heart of this school and girls are given every opportunity to succeed. Excellent teaching, wonderful resources and enthusiastic learners are a powerful combination. Equally important is that our girls are active members of the school community.

We provide many opportunities for involvement in extra-curricular activities including music, sport, fund raising for charity, and a variety of subject related clubs and societies; our students are encouraged to have a go, to take risks and develop their resilience. There are also opportunities for travel abroad, as well as UK based residential and day visits in the West Midlands and beyond.

We are a hard working and caring school with a passion for learning and an outstanding record of achievement.  In an atmosphere of mutual respect and trust, we encourage everyone to reach their potential. As students progress through the school they can become involved in a wide range of influential leadership opportunities.  Our Head Girl and Deputies are complemented by the Senior Prefect team, House Captains, Form Captains and form representatives in the School Council

I believe that we develop well-educated young women who are capable of independent thought. By exercising integrity and respect for others, I hope that they are able to influence the ever-changing world in which we live.
