In an unprecedented and exceptional year in education in which examinations were cancelled, we are extremely proud of the hard work and commitment of our teachers and students. In the context of a global pandemic, our teachers met the demands of an ever-changing landscape to deliver a full and diverse curriculum in adverse circumstances. We are so incredibly proud of our students and all they have achieved during their time at King Edward VI College.
Across the college students celebrated their achievements, including students who will become the first in their family to gain a university degree, students enrolling on apprenticeship courses and management schemes, and students taking a gap year to undertake charitable work.
King Edward VI College has the largest cohort of A-level students in the area; with 947 students receiving results today. We are delighted that 73 students from this large cohort achieved straight A*/A grades. Principal Remley Mann said, ‘We are proud of the achievements of our students who faced the challenges of finishing their A-levels during a global pandemic. I commend the tremendous diligence, scholarship and tenacity of our students and the hard work, expertise and dedication of our teachers. We wish our students every happiness and continued success in their next steps.’
