The North East Inter-Schools Classics Quiz

On Saturday 20th January, nine students from KEVI represented the school at the prestigious North East Inter-Schools Classics Quiz.

We competed against students from The Royal Grammar School, Newcastle High School for Girls, Sacred Heart, Durham School and many more, answering some tough questions on Latin grammar, ancient history and mythology.

Whilst we did not come home with a prize, students put up a formidable performance, winning a number of rounds against departments that are much larger than our own.

Many congratulations to Leyla Webbe, Sam Campbell (Y13), Morgan Brown, Helena Marley, Jessica Hawkins, Aidan Campbell (Y11), Victoria Smyth (Y10) and Joshua White (Y9) for an excellent effort and exemplary behaviour throughout the event.

Sixth Form Application Entry for September 2018

Any student wishing to apply for entry into our Sixth Form should complete this online application form.

Students should check the entry requirements in the Sixth Form at King Edward’s prospectus, these are found on page 17. The entry requirements are a guide, and our informed judgement on what level of attainment at GCSE will mean successful progress and attainment at A Level. Do not let the entry requirements deter you from an application; be aspirational and let them be a motivator for your Summer exams. Every application, after results, will be judged on its own individual merit. All applicants will be considered and be invited to interview after results in August.

You should also check that your chosen combination of subjects are possible within the timetable. Use the latest option pool document to check. Applicants are invited to choose three A Level subjects from the four option pools. These pools are provisional at present. If your combination of subjects does not work, make a note on the application form and we will investigate and try our best. In the very small number of incidents where combinations of subjects cannot be accommodated, applicants will be invited for a meeting to discuss.

Bridging Week will take place during the week beginning 9 July, where students will try their chosen subjects for a week. This is an excellent week where students will get to know Sixth Form and our staff.

Following GCSE results in August, all students should confirm their final subject choices using an online form which will be available on our website on results day.

Applicants from Other Schools

If you would like a personal discussion and a tour of the school, please contact us via our email,

We will send out further information during the year, but we would expect you to attend Bridging Week and a presentation afternoon on Friday 6 July.

Follow our social media channels to get a taste of Sixth Form life here at King Edward’s.

Memoirs of a Geisha

This week Ms Bowey recommends ‘Memoirs of a Geisha’ by Arthur Golden.

“It is a fascinating take on a completely different culture. Incredibly well-researched with a really gripping narrative.”

Lunch Menu

The lunch menu will be displayed on the plasma screen in main reception throughout the day, including vegetarian and non vegetarian food options.
