Sixth Form Virtual Information Evening

The Sixth Form Virtual Information Evening took place on Thursday 22 October 2020.

Fifth Year (Year 11) pupils both currently at King Edward’s and those considering joining KES for the Sixth Form were invited to attend. Subject talks by Heads of Department for all of the subjects that we offer at A Level were held throughout the evening. 

The talks consisted of a short presentation and then an opportunity to ask questions. If you didn't attend the evening, or would like to ask additional questions, then please contact the relevant Head of Department who will then arrange to talk to you at a later date.

Below is a series of information videos given by Mr Parker, Head, Mr Culver, Director of Sixth Form, Mrs Millar, Deputy Director of Sixth Form, Mrs Searles and Mr Havers, Heads of Year, Ms King, the General Studies Co-ordinator and current Sixth Form students...

Below is a short presentation with the available subjects, key dates, and a look at a typical sixth form timetable...

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. 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.
