To take part and book meetings with your child’s teachers you will need to log on to https://keshacademy.schoolcloud.co.uk and create an account – if you did this last year your account should still be active. There is a help sheet attached that will guide you through the process. If you have any difficulties getting set up please contact Miss Lanham or Mr Blair at the Academy.
Please find attached a letter from the NHS COVID-19 Children’s Vaccination Team, there is a link you can access should you wish your child to have their 1st vaccination and information regarding 2nd dose in Academy for those that have previously been vaccinated.

At King Edward VI Sheldon Heath Academy, we are committed to our set of core values. Students were asked to define these core values; Compassion, Aspiration, Respect and Equality. This is what they said. Click on the video to make it full screen. Alternatively, download the poster below.

Sixth Form Results Update - Summer 2021
KESH Academy Sixth Form is pleased to report some outstanding achievements by its students in their GCE and other level 3 qualifications this summer.
This year, following the cancellation of exams, grades were awarded through a process of teacher assessed grades (TAGs), against a national standard and were approved and awarded by the exam boards. The government is not publishing performance data for any schools or colleges this year due to the varying impact of the pandemic.
We are immensely proud of our students, who secured grades A*-B in 72% of the A-Levels studied, especially after such a difficult and disrupted year. 75% of our students have already secured a place in their first-choice university, and we expect this figure to exceed 90% by the end of the week. Over a third of our students secured a place in a Russell Group university. Students have been successful with their applications to study some very aspirational courses, including medicine, engineering, law and health related studies.
Our teachers have worked hard to ensure students are able to progress onto further education and study and we look forward to seeing what they will achieve in the future.
There are still places available in our Sixth Form for September 2021 – for more information click here.
