William Edwards School is a large, highly successful, harmonious and thriving mixed 11-16 comprehensive school. Pupil outcomes across the school are significantly above the national average and the school has been judged to be ‘Outstanding’ since 2010 across two Ofsted inspections. However, life at William Edwards is about so much more than just GCSE outcomes. We are proud of our national reputation for sport, the arts are extremely strong and we are proud to boast the largest Duke of Edinburgh cohort in the East of England.
