Just thought I would share some links on KE VI Handsworth for those of you considering it.

If anyone has a dd there, you're welcome to comment on your experience too.

News article: http://www.birminghammail.co.uk/news/lo ... rd-6106390

GCSE results: http://www.kingedwardvi.bham.sch.uk/exa ... l-ranking/

(It is good that they've copied this as the Times has a paywall...yes KEVIH comes 13th on the country, KECHG 20th...)


A level results: http://www.kingedwardvi.bham.sch.uk/exa ... l-ranking/

(KEVIH is 18th, KECHG 26th...and KECHB is 2nd!)

Scores needed to get into CHG:

Years exam taken (2004-2012 for entry 2005-2013)

323, 329, 321, 325, 330, 328, 222, 225, 229
(108)(110)(107)(109)(110)(110)(111)(113)(115)

So last year 229 and 225 the year before that.

My dd was having a cry tonight :( - it's been an emotional week - and we looked on the website in an attempt to cheer her up.

By the end (and particularly once she'd noticed the knitting club :roll: ), she was getting rather worried that she might get into KECHG instead :lol:

Um, I just noticed your post on your DDs score. She did very well! Surely her score might make it for CHG, she's above last years minimum. Although I don't know if they have a knitting club :)....

We're rather fond of the knitting club thank you very much - don't knock until you've tried it :lol: :lol: :wink:

Ah, the knitting club! But also, during lessons, the girls make some great stuff you know- credit to their textile's teacher. :wink: So far dd1 has made a bag for her gran, a woolly hat for her sister, a purse for her cousin and a really comfy set of pyjamas for me too! :D

With regard to KEVIHS and our experience: out of all the KE schools that we know of, I know I really appreciate KEVIHS the most. And this is because of what the school does & cultivate, and how evidently happy the girls are there. I know my dd1 has her heart set on 2 careers: a paediatrician or a teacher. And if she does become a teacher, she wants to work at KEVIHS! :lol:

Tbh, any girl who secures a place at any KE school is very fortunate as there are plenty of dds out there who really wanted it, but couldn't manage to secure a grammar place at all. :(

Best wishes.

Just wanted to say that KE Handsworth has an open morning this Wednesday. I believe that you have to book.
