National Careers Week 2019

The week 4 – 8 March sees the return of these hugely successful annual events. In school we are supporting them in a number of ways. Assemblies for this week will be ‘futures’ focused and there are a wealth of resources for students and parents/carers on the ‘Your Future – KEVI Careers’ website. This is currently under construction and will be launched during the week.

Over the course of the week there are a number of exciting opportunities which have been arranged for students: visits, workshops and talks. The full programme is available to view here. We ask that students and any parents/carers wanting to attend the parent session on Monday 4 March to sign up using the Google Form. If students prefer they can sign up and register with Mrs J Schreier in the Careers Office.

Careers Education and a future focus is constant within and across school, the preparation of students for their next stage happens throughout the academic year and different year groups. Our Student Mentors are available for one to one conversations at all times, students have access to quality careers advice outside of National Careers Week. In the spirit of Careers Week, we are aiming to raise awareness of opportunities that can enrich the learning experience and enhance any CV.   

You can also follow us on social media or search twitter using #NCW2019 and #NAW2019 to gain further insight into the breadth of events during the week.

Sixth Form Applications for September 2019 OPEN

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 15 and 16. 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 the entry requirements 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.

To create our timetable we organise subjects into pools, this is reflected in the application form. You should 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/Level 3 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 to meet the need. 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 8 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. We are aware that some students will be on the NCS Summer programme during this week. Please just keep the Sixth Form team informed once you have your offer of a place. 

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 5 July.

Check out our Sixth Form website http://sixthformkevi.the3rivers.net/ for more information and follow our social media channels to get a taste of Sixth Form life here at King Edward’s. 

First Edition

A team of students worked together to get their vision of a school newspaper up and running. The self-starting group have shown great determination and resilience to get together the content for their first edition, even meeting with a marketing and branding expert for advice.

The editorial team includes all year groups, but is led by one of our Year 12 students. Getting the first edition together has been a real accomplishment and we look forward to their second edition scheduled for release in February.
