Are the school holidays too long?

You can get excited about the future. The past won’t mind

Well done to our Year 11 students on gaining our best GCSE results in a decade. Some 69% of students have achieved the basics – a grade C or higher in English AND Mathematics and 45% grades are B or higher.

Start-of-Term arrangements:

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

On our Facebook page during the coming week, we will post details of start-of-term arrangements. As we begin a new era, we will be presenting a complimentary pencil-case (containing pen, pencil, ruler and rubber) to all students in Years 7-11 on their first day back.

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.
