“KEGS is one of England’s leading state grammar schools, and it has a history dating back to its foundation in 1551, and origins prior to that.  Its reputation is built on sustained outstanding examination results, an ethos of equality and openness to students of all social and ethnic backgrounds who are admitted, and a deep concern to support young people in developing their personal talents and interests and in learning to work with others.  It mixes a traditional emphasis on courtesy, personal conduct and respect for others, with a modern interest in the latest educational research.”
