Five Ways Edwardians
The Five Ways Edwardians Association was founded in 1979 by Mr E.L Osmend on his retirement from teaching at the school for 40 years. The Association has more than 2000 members who reside in all parts of this country and various parts of the world!
The Association exists to provide “the primary means by which the school and former pupils, staff and friends maintain contact for their mutual interest and benefit and continue to contribute to their school.”.
We welcome support from alumni to engage with the careers programme at the school and regularly have ex-students deliver talks on a wide variety of career sectors.
The Chair of the Five Ways Edwardians Association is Peter Grace
Callum Denning works as an AV producer at Birmingham City FC, as well as freelancing at Global Radio’s LBC as a studio manager and assistant producer
Five Ways Edwardians can be found around the globe and the Five Ways Old Edwardians Association provides a focus for past students and staff as well as providing facilities for the school. Recent alumni include Kate Ashfield (actress), Keith Fielding (international sportsman), Tom Parsons, Dan Fox and Mark Aldred (Olympians), Ben McCarthy and Ben Wright (BBC Journalists), David Cannadine (Historian), Michael Checkland (ex Director General of the BBC), Tom Butler (Bishop of Southwark) and David Parsons (England Cricket Coach).

We are partnered with Future First who provide our alumni platform.
The Hub is intended to be a go to space to reconnect with former classmates and teachers but also a place where alumni can offer advice, expertise and time to current students to help them on their career journeys.
You’ll be able to register for in person and virtual volunteering opportunities at KEFW as well as access and promote opportunities and resources from your sector. We’re really excited to harness the power of our alumni community and a build a network that benefits all!
