Can you make the grade and shine at KEHS?

KING Edward VI High School for Girls (KEHS) enjoyed another crop of excellent grades in 2011.

KEHS is one of two independent day schools in the King Edward VI Foundation, which is also responsible for five grammar schools and one academy around the city of Birmingham.

At A-level, overall students achieved 100 per cent pass rate with 75 per cent of A* and As, and over 89 per cent at A* to B. Individual highlights included Eleanor Davidson of Harborne, who achieved eight A* in general studies, Greek, Latin, maths, further maths, additional further maths, religious studies and a special project.

Alongside her studies, she has also achieved her diploma in ballet and a diploma in cello in the same year, as well as mentoring younger students in maths. She will be going to New College, Oxford, to read maths.

Gabrielle Chan and Jaspreet Khaira also achieved all A* results with six and five respectively.

Twins Aarti and Jyoti Sehdev had three A* and eight As between them and are the last of a family of four girls to attend KEHS.

For GSCEs, 61 per cent of grades were at A* and 89 per cent were at A* and A. Identical twins Alexandra and Rebecca Morton were celebrating having both achieved 11 A* a piece.

Their results came in the eight compulsory GCSE subjects that the school requires its students to sit - English, English literature, French, Latin, maths, physics, chemistry and biology.

Alexandra also achieved A* in history, Russian and art & design. Rebecca matched her sibling pace-for-pace with art & design, Greek and history.

The school attracts the brightest young minds in the Midlands and offers means-tested bursary provision to ensure eligible youngsters can benefit from attending the school, irrespective of parental income.

Closing dates for applications are January 19 for 11-plus and February 5 for 16-plus.
