King Edward VI High School for girls is one of the country’s top independent day schools, consistently achieving outstanding GCSE and A-level results. Founded in 1883, KEHS has the capacity to transform the lives of bright, multi-talented girls who come to the school from an extraordinary range of backgrounds. It offers girls a richly varied and exciting education in a friendly and nurturing environment.
Its academic successes are illustrated by the fact that in August 2017 it was ranked third on The Times national league tables, which is a brilliant achievement.
“Our high achievers are not simply outstanding academics either. Mosthave played a full part in the life of the school, excelling at sport, music,dance, debating and a whole range of other activities.”
At GCSE level 97.6 per cent of pupils gained A*- A with 83 per cent gaining the top grade. The results were excellent at A-level too with 89 per cent of students achieving A*-B grades. Principal Ann Clark is delighted with the fantastic results which she says are a tribute to the girls’ hard work and the dedication of the staff.
Indeed, developing other interests outside the classroom is important to staff as they aim to give girls a rounded education.
There is a very full programme of extracurricular activities, ranging from sport, music and drama to creative writing, GCSE astronomy, living history club and Amnesty International.
There will be an open evening on June 23, 2018, from 9.30am to 12.30pm.
