A Good School and a Great Place to Learn - Ofsted 2013
King Edward VI Community College staff and students are delighted that Ofsted has recognised the huge progress that the College has made in the last two years. Not only has Ofsted rated the College as resoundingly ‘good’ in all four inspections areas: achievement of pupils, quality of teaching, behaviour and safety, and leadership and management.
At KEVICC, we believe that learning is a journey, preparation for life’s rollercoaster adventures.Our destination is achievement and there are many different pathways, challenges and opportunities to explore and discover along the way.

Kennicott Sixth Form
Take your studies further, with our thriving and successful Sixth Form.
We are based in Kennicott House, which is close to, but separate from, the rest of the College. We offer a friendly, more adult atmosphere in which to study.
Gifted & Talented
Ensuring the development of Gifted and Talented learners forms an intrinsic part of KEVICC’s commitment to meeting the needs of every learner.
KEVICC has a rich history of providing extension and enrichment opportunities for Gifted and Talented learners. Recently we have been taking a whole college approach to Gifted and Talented identification and provision.
The Global Dimension flourishes at KEVICC
In October 2013 KEVICC was re-accredited with the International School Award for 2013-2016 in recognition of our many and varied connections with other schools around the world and of the way the global dimension is embedded in several curriculum areas.
During this period we are involving our students in an even greater number of projects that widens their understanding of different nations and their cultures. We will be doing this through many curriculum-based schemes of work, and collapsed timetable days where students spend a focussed amount of time looking at different aspects of the Global Dimension.
The International School Award (www.globalgateway.org/isa) seeks to celebrate, develop, recognise and accredit outstanding practice in the international dimensions of teaching and learning.
Fostering an international dimension in the curriculum is at the heart of the British Council’s work with schools, so that young people gain the cultural understanding and skills they need to live and work as global citizens.
