Friday 20 September 2024
5.30pm - 8.00pm

Our Sixth Form A Level results help to rank King Edward’s as one of the leading schools of its kind in the country and one of the top performing schools of any kind in the south-west of England.

But beyond the delights of superb A Level grades, we remain rightly proud of the fantastic partnerships and relationships that are forged here and of all the wonderful virtues and qualities of our pupils that help to make the Sixth Form at KES such a dynamic and enjoyable place to be.

Visit us on our Open Evening on 20th September to find out more about life in King Edward’s Sixth Form.


During our Open Evening, families will be able to tour the School with pupils, speak to experienced teaching staff and enjoy some refreshments in our fantastic Sixth Form Centre. If the weather looks to be inclement, please bring an umbrella, as some of the tour will be outside. Families will also have the opportunity to meet our Sixth Form team.
