The King Edward VI School students have once again achieved excellent results today.

Headteacher, Clare Savage commented: 

“Congratulations to our Year 11 students, for their hard work over the last three years at King Edward’s and particularly for how well they have handled the many challenges they have faced over the last 18 months.

We know it has not been easy for them but they have done fantastically well to get through such a difficult period of uncertainty. As a school community we are proud of their efforts and achievements and look forward to welcoming the majority of our students back into our 6th Form (We still have space for September see our website for details).  We wish all our students all the very best in their future endeavours and look forward to hearing of their future successes.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all  staff and parents on behalf of all our students for all the support they have given them, particularly over the last few months.”

Adele Tansey, Year 11 Lead stated

I am very pleased to congratulate our Year 11 students on their excellent GCSE results.  Our students have worked incredibly hard over the last two years and thoroughly deserve the results that they have been awarded, which are the conclusion to many 100’s of hours of face to face teaching, online learning and classroom assessment.  I am particularly pleased that a significant number of our students have achieved top grades, notably Ruby Holton and Joe Lennox who both excelled and gained 9’s in all their subjects.

We look forward to seeing many of our students return to King Edward’s in September and to hearing how others have been successful in gaining places on various college courses and apprenticeships. I want them to know how proud we are of them and to wish them the very best for the next step in their educational journey.
