The King Edward VI School A Level students have once again, achieved excellent results today. The school is delighted that over three-quarters of students are now moving into higher education at university including many Russell Group institutions. Many others have secured quality apprenticeships and employment during this economically challenging time.
Students have places in a broad range of courses and disciplines from traditional Engineering and medicine courses, to ethical hacking, interior design and Film and TV Production. Students moving into employment and apprenticeships will be working in construction, healthcare, retail, engineering and the Armed Forces to name a few.
Headteacher, Clare Savage commented:
This year in particular we are also celebrating the resilience and determination of our students in these unprecedented times. They have faced challenges never before experienced, and have had to deal with really difficult conditions of study. As a school community we are proud of their efforts and achievements. I also want to extend my thanks to all of the teachers, school staff, and parents who have supported our students along the way. Congratulations to all King Edward’s Leavers 2021. We wish all of our students every success in their future endeavours. ”
This year centres were asked to make their assessment, using a broad range of evidence from across their full programme of study.
As Head of Sixth Form Leanne Johnston explained:
“This is a process that has never been attempted before and was forced by circumstances which nobody could possibly have foreseen. Staff have worked diligently to provide grades for students. Although these grades are awarded using a different method they fully reflect the hard work of our students throughout their time at King Edward’s.”
