The Wellington sports ground was purchased in 2004 from the University of Southampton. It contains thirty three acres of grounds, six tennis courts, four netball courts and a water based astro pitch. A large pavilion with eighteen changing rooms, a kitchen and catering facilities for over one hundred students is also available.
The Lovaton Rural Study centre was purchased in 2004. Located near Yelverton on Dartmoor, it has easy access to the moor, and was converted to provide an offsite facility for 24 students including accommodation, a refectory, study area and a drying room. It is used as a base for the Duke of Edinburgh Award as well as for academic study weekends and fieldwork.
King Edward VI School
King Edward’s is a school with a long and distinguished history and it has been at the heart of Southampton for over 460 years. However, while proud of our heritage, the School is forward looking, vibrant and dynamic.
King Edward’s is very fortunate in having excellent facilities with over £10 million invested in these over the past ten years. These give our students extensive opportunities to develop their interests in many areas of the curriculum including a wide range of clubs, societies, sports and cultural opportunities.
