Par­ent home: Lat­est news

Sum­mer Let­ter July 2021

Dear Par­ents and Carers

It is hard to believe that we are finally com­plet­ing this strange school year. It has been one of chal­lenge but remark­able sto­ries of resilience, team­work, com­mu­nity, learn­ing new ways of work­ing and utter deter­mi­na­tion from our stu­dents, par­ents, car­ers and staff. I com­mend you all.

Stu­dents have hugely impressed us. They have worked with tenac­ity and have adapted to all the rules and sys­tems and remote learn­ing we have had to intro­duce. I have been par­tic­u­larly impressed by how they have looked out for each other and their com­mu­nity with indi­vid­ual com­mu­nity projects such as sewing masks, run­ning allot­ments and small busi­nesses, sup­port­ing vul­ner­a­ble mem­bers of our com­mu­nity and char­i­ties such as our local food bank and vast amounts of vol­un­teer­ing through the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme. Equally impres­sive have been their col­lec­tive projects such as our bril­liant 6th form Busi­ness stu­dents and their work to raise aware­ness and funds for the Young Minds men­tal health char­ity, as well as their events to sup­port stu­dent well­be­ing. Recent pre­fect inter­views with Y10 and Y12 brought home how pas­sion­ately they feel about look­ing after each other in the KES fam­ily and look­ing out for younger stu­dents too; I was so proud of them all. KS3 stu­dents have also been log­ging a vast range of bril­liant evi­dence and activ­i­ties for their LORIC portfolios.

IB Results Day 2021

King Ethel­bert School are cel­e­brat­ing another year of fan­tas­tic Year 13 results!

Vicky Willis, Head­teacher said “We are thrilled with the fan­tas­tic IB results from our Y13 stu­dents. 95% passed
and 13% were at the very high­est grades of 7 and 6. Stu­dents have worked through chal­leng­ing and chang­ing
cir­cum­stances this year. They are a ter­rific bunch of young peo­ple who have shown immense char­ac­ter,
espe­cially in the last few months, and we are really proud of them. Today stu­dents have received their IB Diploma
results and their Reflec­tive Project grades and they will receive their BTEC results for the applied career related
com­po­nents of their IBCP course in August. 20% are antic­i­pated to have secured over 200 UCAS points. Once
again we have seen how the IBCP pro­gramme sup­ports our young peo­ple in really find­ing their pas­sions and
devel­op­ing their wider skills along­side rig­or­ous, aca­d­e­mic stud­ies. Our stu­dents are off to a wide range of excit­ing
and chal­leng­ing next steps.”
