Open Evening: 4 October 2018, 6-8pm

We very much look forward to welcoming you to this year’s Open Evening which will be held on Thursday 4 October from 6-8pm.

You will be able to explore our wonderful school site, meet and talk to students and staff members, discover our purpose-built classrooms and laboratories, listen to some of our musical ensembles perform and rehearse, watch subject demonstrations and try your hand at a number of exciting practical skills.

Headteacher, Lee Walker, will be delivering a presentation all about life at King Edward VI School at both 6.15pm and 7.00pm in the Lower Hall.

No booking is required for our Open Evening, please just make your way to Reception where you will be warmly welcomed.

School Tours – September and October 2018:

Students and staff are always on hand to give tours to children, along with their parents/carers, who are interested in joining us at King Edward VI School. Our Tour Guides are friendly, confident students in Years 7 and 8 who will help you form an impression of our wonderful school. They will show you our bespoke science, art, design and sporting facilities, as well as introducing you to members of our leadership, teaching and support teams.  Most importantly, perhaps, they will answer the questions you and your child may have about life at King Edward VI School.

We will be running tours at 9.30am on the following dates:

Friday 14 September

Thursday 20 September

Thursday 27 September

Tuesday 2 October

Monday 8 October

Thursday 18 October

If having a relaxed walk around the school – while gaining a sense of the calm and creative atmosphere – appeals to you, then please do not hesitate to get in contact: DD@king-ed.suffolk.sch.uk or 01284 761393.

 

GCSE Results 2018

We are thrilled to be celebrating a momentous set of results, which are 8% higher than last year’s. 76% of our 306 students achieved a 4 or better in English and Maths.This achievement is a credit to our students and staff, all of whom work incredibly hard. It is great to be part of this very special school, and to know we’ve made a real difference for these highly talented young people. We are hugely grateful to parents and carers who provide essential support and play such a crucial role throughout the journey. Results are very strong across so many of our subjects, and we are delighted that our students have embraced our core value of aspiration so wholeheartedly.
