King Edward's School Home

An independent day school for boys aged 11 to 18


Athletics caters for boys of all abilities both in School and House competitions.

The Senior, Intermediate and Junior teams participate in Saturday afternoon fixtures against schools across the Midlands and London area, with considerable success. Single year-group teams have their matches during the week against local opposition. Individual athletes regularly achieve distinction at county and national levels.

The school has its own all-weather track with jump and throw facilities at Eastern Road. This is the venue for home fixtures as well as mass participation on Thursday lunchtimes in House Competitions, with hundreds of boys of all ages doing their best in a range of events to win points for their House. The Summer Term culminates in the Athletics Sports when finals of the House competitions are held on the afternoon of Speech Day.
