Edgbaston High School for Girls

In their own words

Futures without limits

Edgbaston High is an ambitious school, providing a broad, modern and inspiring education. We aim to give girls the confidence, independence and motivation to succeed, here and throughout their lives.

A good education should, of course, include achieving excellent qualifications, and our dedicated staff help girls expand their academic horizons and realise their potential. However, at EHS, we believe children should never be defined by their exam results. An outstanding education goes far beyond this. It inspires young people to achieve in many areas, and to enjoy the process as much as the end result.

We also teach students to understand the impact they have on others, and the responsibility they have to give their time and talents to the wider community. We foster an environment where girls can expand their minds, think flexibly, develop leadership skills and grow as individuals. They should be – and deserve to be – empowered, inspired and challenged throughout their education, so they leave school fully equipped to succeed in whatever they decide to pursue.

EHS pupils never fail to impress me with their achievements and the genuine desire to help others. This truly is a school that lives by its motto, Fideliter, Fortiter, Feliciter, ‘Faithfully, Boldly, Successfully’.

Come and see EHS for yourself. I very much look forward to welcoming you.

The school uses the CEM Select entrance exam to assess admissions. CEM Select includes particular questions types, covering Verbal Reasoning, Non-Verbal Reasoning and Mathematics, often paired with a CEM English paper. It is particularly important to practise the Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning modules, as the precise type of question varies across different exam boards.

We work with the test experts at Ready Steady Pass, to bring you the most accurate and best value CEM Selet practise material. These exams are audited by AQA and EdExcel exam markers, and ISI independent school inspectors. Tests are taken online, include unlimited resits and emailed results including answer sheets to share with tutors and parents.

Each individual exam contains a full CEM Select experience, covering Maths, Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning; and includes a CEM style English exam as standard. Buy the Bundle or Complete Collection to get the best value for money.
