GCSE Success

IMG_9606Congratulations to the class of 2015 for a superb set of GCSE results.

The students worked extremely hard to achieve results well above the national averages across the whole curriculum.

This year an amazing 20% of the cohort received 7 of more A* – A grades, with 70% of students achieving five or more A* – C grades including English and maths.

Good luck to those students who are leaving KEVI to pursue apprenticeships and courses elsewhere, and we look forward to welcoming our new Sixth Form cohort in September.

A Level Celebrations

A20Students at KEVI are celebrating another fantastic year of A level success.

There were 659 exam entries from 215 students across 33 subjects, representing one of the largest Sixth Form cohorts across the region.

Almost 50% of all grades were at A* – B grades, and there are many wonderful success stories across the whole year group.

Congratulations and best wishes to all students for their future, from all the staff at KEVI.

Harker the hero but no happy ending

NUFCYear 11 student Nathan Harker has been putting his goalkeeping skills to good use.

Newcastle United played in the U17 section of the Gothia Cup – a youth tournament staged in the Swedish city of Gothenburg.

Although they didn’t get into the top 4, Nathan was commended for his goalkeeping – especially in a shoot-out against Swedish side Halmstads BK.
