Two confirmed COVID-19 cases

Updated: 20 September 2020 @ 16:25

We were notified today (20 September 2020) of two confirmed cases of COVID-19. We have taken advice from Public Health England and asked our Year 12 and 13 bubble to self isolate. All other pupils should attend school as normal providing they are well.

The period of isolation for Year 12 and 13 will run from Tuesday 15th September - Tuesday 29th September. Year 12 and Year 13 will therefore return on Wednesday 30th September.

All lessons will be delivered live for Year 12 and Year 13 during their period of isolation via Microsoft Teams. Students should log on and expect a live lesson at the normal timetabled time.

Parental Letters

Face covering

You should be aware that local restrictions in Birmingham, Sandwell and Solihull are now in place. The default position for areas in national government intervention is that education and childcare settings will remain open. An area moving into national intervention with restrictions short of education and childcare closure is described as ‘tier 1’. There are no changes to childcare, and the only difference in education settings is that where pupils in year 7 and above are educated, face coverings should be worn by adults and pupils when moving around the premises, outside of classrooms, such as in corridors and communal areas where social distancing cannot easily be maintained.

From Monday 14th September all pupils and staff must wear a face covering when not in the classroom. Please ensure your child comes to school with a suitable face covering. Click on the link below to see the guidance on wearing and removing a face covering safely.

Return to school - September 2020

As students return to the Academy in September 2020, we have made plans to make sure our Academy is as safe as possible. It is important that everyone is aware of the plans we have put in place.

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.
