Year 7 self-isolation

Updated: 22nd October 2020 @ 10:35 am

We have been advised by Public Health England that there has been a confirmed case of COVID-19 within the school.The Year 7 student was last in school on the 19/10/2020 and we received confirmation last night that they have tested positive for Coronavirus. We have followed the national guidance and have identified that your child, who is in the Year 7 bubble would have potentially been in close contact with the affected child.

In line with the national guidance we recommend that your child now stay at home and self-isolate until Monday 2nd November. All Year 7 students are to return to school on Tuesday 3rd November if they are not demonstrating any symptoms of Coronavirus. For the remainder of this week, and also Monday 2nd November, Year 7 students will follow their full timetable with live lessons being held on Microsoft TEAMs.We will not be setting work over the half term break.

Another fantastic year for students at KESH Sixth Form; the AS and A-Level grades secured are the best ever!

Our students have once again been very successful in their A-Level studies and have secured the best grades ever, 56% of A-Level results were a grade B or better, with nearly 90% of A-Level students securing a grade C or better! As a result, the vast majority of our students are able to continue with their studies in their first choice of University and this includes some very prestigious universities and courses:

  • Medicine at the University of Birmingham and Aston University (three students in total)
  • Mathematics at the University of Birmingham
  • Economics at the University of Birmingham
  • Civil Engineering at the University of Birmingham
  • Mathematics with Economics at the University of Birmingham
  • Biological Sciences at the University of Warwick

Students in Year 12 performed really well with 54% of AS results being at grade B or better and 78% being at grade C or better!

We are proud of what our students have achieved and we wish them the very best for their future.
