A Level Poet Visit

Sinéad Morrissey, poet of ‘Genetics’ visited Year 12 and 13 English Literature students and led a fascinating and detailed discussion of her poem and other poems in the anthology.

A Level students benefited from developing their understanding of the poem in greater depth by discovering the influences behind the poem and hidden meanings and purposes of Morrissey’s villanelle.

Sixth Form Honour Morpeth Suffragette

Some of our Sixth Form girls got the amazing opportunity to honour Morpeth heroine Emily Wilding Davison and reflect on the legacy of the suffrage movement in an extensive interview with Sky News.

Over the course of the interview the students reflected on what the vote means to them, the strides made by the pioneering suffragettes as well as current issues affecting women such as the #MeTo campaign.

We were absolutely delighted Sky News approach our Sixth Form for this piece and the students spoke articulately and with passion about the issue.

The piece is due to air on Sky News on Tuesday 6 February.

Regional Netball Finals

Well done to the Under 16 and Under 14 Netball teams who represented the school at the Regional Netball Finals on Saturday.

The girls played extremely well and came seventh overall in North East.

Well done girls!

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, sixthformkevi@the3rivers.net

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.
