The Education Act of 1944 - King Edward VI School, Stratford-upon-Avon 1944-1963
The Education Act of 1944 saw for the first time in England and Wales the universal provision of state secondary education, and in Stratford KES was to participate in this provision.
The school evolved from a fee-paying boarding school to one which admitted local day-boys free of charge on the basis of their results in the 'eleven-plus' examination. The preparatory school closed and education was restricted to eleven to eighteen-year-olds.
