Headteacher at King Edwards, Margaret Reeve said, “We are delighted by the sheer hard work, drive and commitment of our students who have been ably supported by parents and staff. This success reflects their determination to succeed in terms of exam accreditation and further education and career choices. We look forward to seeing many students return to our Sixth Form in September to continue with their successful studies. Last week we celebrated 100% of our Sixth Form students achieving at least two A grade equivalent with 95% achieving 3 or more A grades equivalent and Jade Stubbins achieving 4 A levels at A grade, which is a tremendous achievement and a credit to their effort to succeed in this difficult economic climate”.
