Information about the School
King Edward VI Grammar School is a selective boys' state school with a mixed Sixth Form and an exceptional academic and extra-curricular reputation based in Chelmsford. As a school specifically providing specialist education to very able young people, there is a strong focus on academic achievement, with the vast majority of students (both those boys who join in Year 7, and students, including girls, who join for the sixth form) going on to top universities. There is a serious work ethic at KEGS which derives from highly motivated students and dedicated staff. Recent results have put us near the top of national GCSE and A level rankings, and twenty-four students who left us in Summer 2014 gained places at Oxford or Cambridge. However, league tables are not our guiding principle – we value breadth of study as well – and such tables can be very misleading because of what they include or don't include – for example the Science IGCSEs we currently use counted in Government measures in 2013, won't count in 2014 or 2015, will count in 2016 and 2017, but then won't count in 2018 ! We also focus significant effort on the progress of students who may find a particular subject area more challenging than others, and we have an extensive programme of mentor support.
