Musical Excellence: Our students on tour this summer in Belgium

The school is now closed following a momentous year. In the past fortnight alone we have held an inspiring sports festival for 1000 students, taken 66 students on a Music tour of Belgium, praised the achievements of our Year 9 award winners, seen our debating team at Eton, welcomed 660 new Year 7, 8 and 9 students, held a range of Gifted & Talented student events at Cambridge University, and completed more than £1.5 million of refurbishment.

As Headteacher, all I can do is to thank students, parents, staff and governors for your magnificent support. We truly have a dream team.

Forthcoming dates:

Thursday 18 August:
- Year 13 A-level results, 9am
- Year 12 AS results, 10am
Thursday 25 August:
- Year 11 GCSE results, 10am

- Years 7, 8 and 12: Monday 5 September
- Years 7, 8, 9, 12 an 13: Tuesday 6 September
- All year groups: Wednesday 7 September

From the beginning of the autumn term many of the bus services running to and from King Edward VI School will be changing to reflect the new school structure in Bury St. Edmunds. You can make yourself aware of the changes by going to the Suffolkonboard website. We suggest that you also check this at the end of the summer as we are aware that some of the detail is still being finalised.

As always, thanks for your support for our work and values. See our latest edition of 'Celebrate!' here. Follow all our Facebook news here.
