The King Edward VI School is reporting another set of excellent GCSE results today.

Clare Savage, Headteacher said, “I would like to congratulate all Year 11 students and staff on an excellent set of GCSE results which is testament to our Year 11’s positive attitudes, determination and hard work.

I am proud of every one of our students who have worked so hard to achieve such fantastic grades. They have had a challenging time during the past two years, but they have been committed to their studies and sat their exams with confidence and determination. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all staff on behalf of our students for all the support they have given them. “

Jack Quinlan, Head of Year stated “This was a great year group with a really positive work ethic. They fully deserve these wonderful results and I wish them the very best for the next step in their educational journey.”

80% of students achieved a grade 4 or above in both English and Maths.  The majority of King Edward’s students will be joining their Sixth form in September whilst others will follow other further education courses or apprenticeship opportunities.
