King Edward's School Home

An independent day school for boys aged 11 to 18


Sailing, kayaking and windsurfing are offered to senior boys as an option for Wednesday afternoon games. At present these are available during the summer and first part of the autumn terms. Boys of any ability, beginners or experienced, are welcome onto the option. Most boys work towards the RYA or BCU award system and will receive a log book in order to record their progress, and Certificates of Achievement are awarded as they reach each level. We sail/kayak at Edgbaston Reservoir with fully qualified instructors from Edgbaston Watersports, who provide all equipment and training for us. In order to teach the boys a range of skills, there are a number of different style and size boats, kayaks, canoes and windsurf boards available.
