King Edward VI offers every child the opportunity to fulfil their academic, creative and sporting potential to ensure each and every child achieves academic success.

Sixth Form Expectations

Sixth Form is a really important part of a young person's career and at King Edward VI we have very high expectations of everyone:

  • Strong attendance and punctuality
  • Commitment to get involved in your House
  • Smart uniform
  • Limiting hours worked part time outside Sixth Form to a reasonable level that doesn’t restrict progress in A Levels
  • Setting a strong example in terms of getting involved, behaviour and attitudes to the academy as a whole
  • Using time for independent study effectively

The profile of Sixth Formers is enhanced through:

  • Leading Year 7 induction events
  • Assisting in academy trips for lower school
  • Organising termly ‘in house competitions
  • Organising fundraising events for their chosen charity
  • Holding a weekly lunch ‘drop in’ session or sports club for Year 7 and Year 8 students

All students are required to wear a Sixth Form uniform, which has been chosen by our students.
