Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to King Edward VI Sheldon Heath Academy. KESH is an oversubscribed 11-18 academy serving a vibrant and diverse community. As part of King Edward VI Multi-Academy Trust, our vision is to enable students to reach the highest personal and academic standards.

Our state of the art facilities and broad curriculum provide a fantastic environment in which to learn. We encourage students to be aspirational, believe in themselves and work hard, and our skilled staff provide excellent academic and pastoral support. At KESH we celebrate success through rewards assemblies, the House system and whole academy celebrations. Academy attendance is above national average demonstrating that students enjoy coming to school and feel part of our community.

Students have the opportunity to participate in a range of activities and events beyond the classroom including clubs, sporting fixtures, music, trips and visits, and our ethos, built around tolerance, respect, and resilience ensures students are well equipped to thrive, both on their journey through school and in the world beyond.
