Principal’s Message

King Edwards is a welcoming, supportive and high achieving college – a college that is built on delivering success for all. As a long established provider of sixth form education, we are passionate about providing the highest quality student experience, delivered by committed staff who believe wholeheartedly in our values of always being ambitious, supportive, genuine and involved.

As a college we are proud of our history and tradition. Our goal is to provide a truly 21st century education built upon innovation, creativity, academic rigour, personal development and a belief in the potential of every person. As an organisation we are forward facing and focused on providing both the qualifications and skills needed to unlock the most successful futures possible.

At King Edwards we are committed to the student experience. Students work alongside staff on all aspects of the college’s operations and future direction. Student leadership and student voice are not add-ons to how we do our work but key components of our institutional DNA. We value student opinions and believe that collaboration is key to all our success.


This is an exciting time to be a part of King Edwards. We have recently formed the Better Futures Multi-Academy Trust with Bilborough Sixth Form College in Nottingham and Gateway College in Leicester. This partnership will enable each college to share best practice and work together to be outstanding. We are privileged that the Trust is sponsored by Coventry University, who provide us with knowledge, skills and resources unrivalled in the sixth form sector.I would invite you to find out more about our wonderful institution. If you are looking to study at the college, why not take a look at the study programmes on our website and see the comprehensive range of courses we offer.

Every course is the best in its field and offers progression routes to university, apprenticeships and careers. If you would like to find out what’s happening at college, take a moment to read through our latest news and social media feeds and take the opportunity to visit one of our Open Events to find out how we can help you reach your potential.

We are an ambitious college, with high aspirations for students and ourselves. I am proud to be the Principal of a college which inspires, challenges and supports its young people to gain the skills they need to thrive both now and in the future. I look forward to welcoming you to join us.

Stuart Noss – Principal
