King Edward VI Five Ways School, a selective co-educational grammar school in the West Midlands and one of the top five state co-educational grammar schools.
By an Act of Parliament in 1831 the Governors were empowered to create other schools and between 1838 and 1853 eight elementary schools were opened. However, by the 1870s the elementary schools had outlasted their usefulness, and the pressing need was for grammar schools. The structure of the Foundation was changed once more. Grammar schools were created at Aston, Camp Hill (Boys and Girls), Five Ways and Handsworth whilst King Edward's School acquired a sister - the High School for Girls, housed in an adjoining building.
All but Aston and Handsworth now function from sites to which they were transferred after 1936. Originally independent, financial considerations persuaded the Grammar schools to become voluntary aided in the 1940s. The formula thus created, of two independent and five grammar schools, has endured to the present day: the former admitting fee-paying students, the latter offering free education.
It has been a formula for success. All the schools enjoy excellent reputations both in the city and beyond. They currently educate over 5, 600 pupils from a complete cross section of society and have produced men and women of distinction in many fields.
