At King Edward VI King’s Norton School for Boys, we are proud of our journey and, with over 100 years of history, our school has many great traditions that live on in our ethos today. We maintain the best of these traditions and enhance them with the latest educational practice; this provides us with a blend of traditional values with a forward-looking approach to learning.
We are part of the King Edward VI Multi Academy Trust, which is a diverse family of schools serving Birmingham. The trust supports the school in our shared aim and values; to make Birmingham the best place to be educated.
To achieve this it is essential that we add value, academically, personally and culturally to our students journey. We are proud of our curriculum, teaching, learning and the results they enable our students to achieve. We are proud of our students and the way they develop as individuals through their interactions and experiences. We are proud of the range of opportunities that we offer which take our students out of their comfort zone and help them to build character, self-worth and resilience.
Aspiration is essential to all of this; it is the key to continually striving for improvement. Our motto is:
“Humani Semper Contendimus”. – ‘we humans are always striving’
It drives us in providing the highest quality, well-rounded education for the boys we serve.
