Thursday’s Food:

We are pleased to report that the Scenes of Crime officers have finished their investigatory work and that we can now access the school’s kitchen.

The Catering Team have committed to clearing, cleaning and sorting their workspace in time to resume their normal and full catering service from tomorrow morning.

We are hugely grateful to them for their efforts, and feel lucky to have such resilient and resourceful colleagues.

Our students have been mature and helpful over the course of a logistically tricky day, and we thank them for their forbearance.

From the Headteacher

Although there is just a short time until the Summer holiday, we still have plenty of excitement ahead. In these final few weeks, we are looking forward to our Paris trip, two PSHE conferences, a careers event, a Duke of Edinburgh Silver expedition, a Maths trip to Norwich Castle, a cross-curricular Dance/Science day, a track and field competition and, finally, our three transition days at the end of term for our new Year 7 students.

The Summer Soirée, hosted by the Music Department, was a resounding success. Once again, we were treated to a wide variety of music, performed by students from all years.  From Wolfgang Mozart to Stevie Wonder, via Les Misérables and ‘One Day More’, the audience was treated to a truly brilliant spectacle. Thank you to all involved.  We are already looking forward to next year’s events.

King Edward VI School is a thriving community. There is an awful lot going on here every day. We value the acquisition of knowledge, spiritual and moral development, kindness and creativity. Above all else we want everyone in our community to be happy and to enjoy their time here. If you are keen for your child to study at King Edward VI in the future we would be delighted to meet you and to show you and your child what we do. Please contact our Senior Administrator for Admissions, Debbie Dunning, for further details ( or 01284 761393 ext.252).

With very best wishes,

Lee Walker
