There will be no badminton club on Thursday.

From the Headteacher

Our Year 11 and 13 students have now sat their Trial Examinations and received their results, and they are now busy working hard to prepare for their final examinations which they will sit in the Summer. On our website there is a wealth of information available to help support students, and their parents/carers, as they prepare for what lies ahead. Detailed guidance on revision is available here (

We are looking forward to our Year 9 Options Evening which will take place on 13 February 2020. Over the course of the evening students and their families will be able to find out about the full range of GCSE and other courses we offer at Key Stage 4, and begin the process of choosing which to study in Years 10 and 11. We are using an excellent online system for Option choices this year, about which our team of tutors has more information.

Our Year 11 Food and Nutrition students have been cooking up some mouth-watering menus as part of their final GCSE assessment. I have been lucky enough to sample several different dishes from their repertoire – very tasty they were too! You can see the results of their work on our Food and Nutrition Instagram page

Some events to look out for in the coming weeks:

Thursday 6 February – Year 13 Parents’ Evening
Friday 7 February – FOKES Wine Tasting Evening
Monday 10 – Friday 14 February – Careers Week
Thursday 13 February – Year 9 Options Evening
Monday 2 March – Schools Celebration of Music, Snape Maltings
Thursday 5 March – As if it’s the 90s! – the Music Department’s Spring Concert
Thursday 12 March – Festival of Dance, the Apex
Thursday 26 March – Year 10 Parents’ Evening

Our vision at King Edward VI is simple – to be a school rooted in Christian values, in which students access a broad, challenging and enriching curriculum in a safe and secure environment. If you would like to come and see us in action, we would be delighted to meet you. To arrange a tour, please contact our Admissions Officer Debbie Dunning (

I wish you all a very happy New Year,

Lee Walker


To All our Year 11 and Year 13 students

We would love you to stay in touch with our school so that we can keep you informed of future events and news and, of course, celebrate your next steps and future achievements.

We always welcome former students at King Edward VI and the opportunity for you to share your experiences going forward would be of interest and help to the students that will come after you.
