Sixth Form Information Evening

The Sixth Form Information Evening will take place on Thursday 17 October 2019 starting at 7.00pm. 

 Fifth Year (Year 11) pupils both currently at King Edward’s and those considering joining KES for the Sixth Form are invited to attend. This is a chance to discuss with teaching staff the different A level courses offered, the course content, and what to expect in each subject to help you make the right choices. Current Sixth Form students will be on hand to discuss life in the Sixth Form and the Admissions Office will be available to answer any questions that you may have. The Director of Sixth Form and the Deputy Head (Curriculum) will also give a talk to visitors.

If you are not currently at King Edward’s and would like to attend or require further information, please contact the Registrar on 023 8079 9216 or

For detailed information regarding the Sixth Form Curriculum and FAQs please follow this link. Application forms for new entrants to King Edward’s can be obtained by contacting the registrar.

Students will choose four subjects from the following:




History *





Classical Civilisation


Computer Science*


Design Technology *


Economics *


English Language

Politics *

English Literature




Further Mathematics – see note 3

Sports Science *

Geography *

Theatre Studies*


1. You may study the subjects marked * whether or not you have taken them as GCSE courses. It may be helpful to talk to the head of department about such a choice.

2. You will not normally be allowed to study three new subjects at A Level; in many cases it may be advisable not to choose more than one subject [to follow to full A level] which you have not previously studied at GCSE.

3. Further Mathematics is only to be chosen as a fourth full A level and must be combined with Mathematics. By choosing it you are committing yourself to following Route 2 and taking four subjects in the Upper Sixth.

4. The availability of subjects is dependent on sufficient uptake, and the School reserves the right to make such amendments as necessary, in response to demand and in the light of practical considerations. We cannot guarantee that all subject combinations will be available.
