You will be aware that following government guidance published this week, students can begin to return to face to face education from the 8th March. We are currently working on plans to welcome all students back to the Academy in line with this guidance and will share further detail with you by Tuesday 2nd March.
As part of the government’s plan to supress this virus we have been advised that all secondary school students will be offered COVID-19 lateral flow tests upon their return which will take place at the Academy
If you are happy for your child to be tested, please fill in the form below and the enclosed consent statement (one per student) and submit the fully completed form by pressing the submit button at the end.
Consent forms must be completed no later than 4pm on Monday 1st March. Students must wear full school uniform when attending the Academy to have their COVID-19 Lateral Flow Test
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.
This information is intended to provide clarity and transparency to students and parents or carers about what to expect from remote education if local restrictions require entire cohorts (or bubbles) to remain at home.
The Academy is the process of preparing the Academy site in order to take part in the Governments COVID-19 mass testing programme.
A short video clip demonstrates the self-swabbing process that students will need to undertake under the guidance of Academy staff to enable them to take part in the testing programme. All of the resources and equipment required will be provided by the Academy. Further details of how to register for the programme and the timeframe for testing to commence will be released shortly.
Due to COVID-19 we will be running parents evening online. Please check out the link below for information on how to book appointments, and the requirements for joining the video call.
Thank you to all parents/carers for your support with live lessons. Pupils need regular opportunities to move away from the screen for short periods. Consequently from Monday 25th Jan, we are adding two additional short wellbeing breaks to our school day to facilitate this. The timings of two lessons will be adjusted to accommodate the change. Please see letter below.

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:
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.
