From the Headteacher
The Summer term is underway, and we are looking forward to a range of events in the coming weeks. Our students will be busy once again preparing and performing for a number of high-profile artistic events this term, including a showcase for our Arts Award ‘Gold’ students, and our Summer Soirée on 4 July. There will also be expeditions for Bronze and Silver Duke of Edinburgh students, as well as Geography field trips, and our annual Bushcraft trip for Year 7 students.
We are also looking forward to welcoming, at our upcoming Transition evenings, the current Year 6 pupils and their families who will be starting with us in September. We are in the process of planning for our three Transition days which will take place at the end of this term. During these Transition days our new Year 7 cohort officially start as King Edward VI students and find out all about life at the school, in readiness for September.
We are holding a series of tours this term for families with primary-age children who might be interested in joining us in the future. Visitors will have the opportunity to meet staff and current students, and to look round the school on a typical working day. Anyone interested in taking part in a tour should please contact our Senior Administrator for Admissions, Debbie Dunning, who will be delighted to help (DD@king-ed.suffolk.sch.uk or 01284 761393 ext.252).
Finally, we send our very best wishes to all students who are embarking on public examinations in the coming weeks. We are here to support them (and their parents) every step of the way, and trust that they will be rewarded for all their hard work.
With very best wishes,
