Sixth Form Applications for Sept 2017

Any student wishing to apply for entry into our Sixth Form should complete this online application form.

Students should check the entry requirements in the Post 16 prospectus first and then check that combinations of subjects are possible using this latest option pool document. Students should choose one subject from each of the four option columns, even if you intend to only follow three A Levels.

46 Points

The online application will ask you if you are predicted 46 points or not (see prospectus about how to calculate). The range of subject choices will depend on your answer. If your prediction suggests you will narrowly miss 46 points, then click that you have 46 points to give you access to the full range of subjects. Following your GCSE results in August, if you do not achieve 46 points an interview, with a member of the 6th form team, will take place on the 5 September to discuss which subjects are possible.

Bridging Week will take place during the week beginning 10 July, where students will try their chosen subjects for a week.

Following GCSE results in August, all students should confirm their final subject choices using an online form which will be available on our website on results day.

External Applicants

If you would like a personal discussion and a tour of the school, please contact us via our email,

We will send out further information during the year, but we would expect you to attend Bridging Week and a presentation afternoon on Friday 7 July.



National Performance Tables 2016

 Level Results 2016Once again the National Performance Tables show that King Edward’s remains very strong at both GCSE and A Level.

At GCSE King Edward’s were amongst the top performing schools in the North East region for the key attainment measures of 5A*-C and A*-C for English and Maths combined.

At A Level we had another extremely successful year for Value Added, which measures the progress each student makes from their GCSE starting point to their A Level results. Our figure of 0.26 places us in the top 10 for all schools in the North East region, including independent schools.

Very well done to all staff and students for their hard work and dedication.

KEVI vs QEHS – County Cup Final 2016

Written by 20161206_182501Captain Alex Donaghy

On 6 December, KEVI u15’s boys rugby team won the county cup for the third year in succession, beating Queen Elizabeth’s High School, Hexham 53-17.

The game opened with a  tense few minutes as both teams tried to settle their nerves, but it was KEVI to score first with Alex Donaghy putting Fergus Simpson through a  gaping hole in the defence to open the scoring. Hexham immediately hit back scoring from the kick off. This was a wake up call for KEVI. The next 20 minutes was a gruelling physical battle of defence with no side wanting to concede. However, Owen Priest managed to shrug off the challenge of three defenders and finished well in the corner for a nice try.
