SMK King Edward VIISMK King Edward VII (31 August, 2015)

King Edward VII School (GPS: 4.85642, 100.73553) is the oldest English school in the Federated Malay States. It was founded in 1883 and was called Central School. When the present school building was completed in 1905, it was renamed after the British monarch of that time, King Edward VII (reign 1901-1910).

King Edward VII School excelled in sports, particularly rugby, which was introduced to the school by TJ Thomas in 1923. In 1933, King Edward VII School beat the Penang Free School in the first interschool rugby tournament, making King Edward VII School synonymous with rugby prowess.

The Second World War was a bleak chapter in the school's history, as it was made the headquarters of the Malayan Kempetai. Classrooms were converted into torture chambers. Life returned to normal when the war was over, and the school reopened with an increased enrolment. In 1954, King Edward VII school became the first school in the district to have a 6th form, and students from the surrounding region came here to attend class.
