King Edward VII Academy


King Edward VII Academy launched on 1st September 2014, sponsored by the CWA Academy Trust.

They believe that strength comes from togetherness: each individual plays a crucial part in our overall community and in our successes. They combine the unity of their traditional house system and its exciting enrichment programme with an uncompromising focus upon individual academic success.

Their reputation for sports is a marker of the emphasis they place on developing well-rounded young adults. It also serves as a symbol of their wider aims – the pursuit of excellence in all things; pride in our academy; togetherness in all we do; fair play and outstanding behaviour; and healthy competition.

It is fitting that the traditional school motto, for more than five hundred years, is very much situated in the present, upon the progress of each student:

‘Doctrina in horas crescat’
Let him hourly increase in learning
