Sixth Form at The King Edward VI School goes from strength to strength.

Mark Simpson states, “This year sees our best ever attainment figure for A* to B at 62% and our second best ever Value Added figure. This means that on average students in Sixth Form achieve half a grade higher at A level, than their GCSE performance would suggest.”

“This is an amazing achievement across 34 subjects, almost 200 students  and with over 600 exam entries, and is testament to the hugely positive work ethic of our Year 13 students and the dedication of our staff.”

Our overall pass rate of 99.5% is also unprecedented and shows that our inclusive entry policy, exclusive experiences and outstanding advice and guidance sets students up for success.  The staff at King Edward’s would like to congratulate this year group on a fantastic set of results, and we wish them every success in the future, whether moving into Higher Education, undertaking an Apprenticeship or entering employment.

Leanne Johnston, Head of Sixth Form stated, “Our results are especially pleasing given that this year represents the biggest change in A Level courses across the country. Furthermore, given the significant funding challenges faced by education, we are really pleased to still be able to offer a broad curriculum with music, arts, humanities, social sciences and STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) equally represented.”

Kate O’Neill, Head of Year is impressed with the hard work, perseverance and determination with this year group to succeed. She is really proud of them and is looking forward to welcoming our new Year 12 in September.

We do still have places available for starting Year 12 in September 2018. Please contact sixthformkevi@the3rivers.net with any enquiries.
