KES—The Future

King Edward VII School

Only two weeks to collect views from parents on what they value about KES VII school and what about its ethos is important to them and their children.

A Google form has been set up for this so please please do all fill it in – it’s only a small number of questions but this is the only way we get to have a say in a process that is very out of our hands. 

The form is here: The Future Campaign

Please note this questionnaire forms part of the KES – The Future campaign, which was set up by a group of parents following the Ofsted inspection and academisation order. Please do not share any personal identifiable information about your child on this form. Any concerns over a child’s safety or welfare should be passed on to the school or through the relevant authorities.



Chris Packham addresses over 1400 students and teachers at the Schools’ Climate Assembly held at King Edward VII School.

On the 20th of October 2022, over 1400 students and over 45 schools from across the country met at King Edward VII School for the second-ever Schools Climate Assembly. Chris Packham’s passionate words fell upon young ears as he tip-toed the fine line between the harsh reality of global rising temperatures and the hope and determination that young people must share in order to fight it.

Their visit to Downing Street coincided with the start of the COP 27 conference in Egypt. This means that they had a unique opportunity to make real change, and possibly influence the talks and decisions of world leaders at COP 27; a chance for young people to make an impact on a global scale.
