Parent Forum

As the new Headteacher of King Edward VI School, I am seeking the views of as many members of the community as possible regarding how the school should move forward.  As such, I would like to invite you, the families of our students, to a Parent Forum.  You will hear a little more about my educational vision, and you will have a chance to say what you think the school should keep doing, what should change, and what might be developed in the future.

The Parent Forum will run on Wednesday 21 and Tuesday 27 June, starting at 7pm in the Lower Hall. Please note that the second evening will be a repeat of the first, so you only need attend one.

To reserve a place on either evening, please contact (Subject: Parent Forum), or telephone the school (01284 761393).

With best wishes,

Lee Walker


Summer Soirée:

Tickets are now available for our Summer Soirée taking place on Monday 10 July at 7pm.  You will have the opportunity to hear our major ensembles perform alongside our chamber ensembles and soloists. We will be celebrating a year of superb music-making, and saying farewell, and thank you, to those students for whom it will be their last King Edward’s Concert.  Tickets cost £5/4.


A Midsummer Night’s Dream:

Tickets are also now available for our summer production of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, taking place on Wednesday 12 July at 7pm. This is an open air theatre event, so remember your blanket and picnic! Tickets are priced at £5, and include a programme and soft drink. We will have a traditional ice cream cart providing a selection of delicious ice creams for sale.


Come for a tour…

Since 1550, we have been known as ‘schola buriensis’ – the school of Bury St Edmunds. With the best GCSE results in a decade, our largest, most thriving Sixth Form, all the benefits of older students working with younger students, top academic staff teaching the full age range, and excellent, purpose-built facilities, we have a lot to share with you.

We are feeling hugely proud as we near the end of our first year as a full 11-18 secondary school, and we would love you to come on a tour to find out why.

To arrange a tour please telephone Debbie Dunning on 01284 761393 (Ext 252), or email
