The King Edward VI Foundation operates the following grammar schools in Birmingham:
We set aside 25% of places for children eligible for the Pupil Premium who meet the qualifying score because we are committed to ensuring our selective schools are accessible to children from all backgrounds. Our catchment areas ensure that all children eligible for the Pupil Premium who achieve a standard qualifying score and who live in the catchment area will be able attend their local selective school if they want.
A map of the catchment areas for each school can be accessed through the school policy links on this page.
