Sustainability

King Edward’s believes that protection of the environment is an integral part of good institutional practice and that it has a duty to satisfy itself that all of its operations are conducted with proper regard for the environment. It is committed to maintaining, and wherever possible, improving the quality of this environment both for the people who live and work in the School, and for the wider community now and in the future.

In May of 2012 the school was awarded the "Green Flag".
