Free school meal vouchers

Dear Parent/Carers, we are exploring how we might be able to provide vouchers for students entitled to free school meals whilst the Academy is closed to the majority of students. The planning is in the early stages and would involve using an on-line solution. In order to help us decide whether this is feasible can you please complete the following form.

VERY IMPORTANT: the form below should be completed one per child, i.e. if you have 2 children who are entitled to FSM, the form should be completed twice, once for each child.

King Edward VI Sheldon Heath Academy is committed to developing responsible, aspirational, independent, happy and well-rounded young people with the self-belief to reach their goals. Our work is underpinned by our core values and driven by our unequivocal belief in equality and tolerance. This is secured through inspirational and enthusiastic teaching, the provision of a broad, challenging curriculum and excellent support and care. We want to ensure our young people fulfil and exceed their potential, are proud of who they are, are committed to lifelong learning and leave well-equipped to navigate their way through the challenges of the 21st Century positively contributing to society both economically and socially.

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.
