Y7 Admissions

We are looking forward to welcoming your child to King Edward VI Community College (KEVICC) and are delighted that they will be joining our school for the next chapter in their school life. Rest assured, they will be well looked after and are going to have an amazing and successful time at KEVICC.

Starting secondary school is a very exciting time but it can also be a little bit daunting, especially where students are transferring from a relatively small school to a larger one. We also realise at the moment that you and your child may be a bit more anxious as schools and education have been significantly disrupted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please don’t worry though, we are here to fully support their transition journey and will be using this website and other interactive resources to make your child’s introduction to KEVICC a safe, smooth and special one.

Many families have a lot of the same questions and concerns surrounding transition and we are committed to working with you to address any issues, so you'll find lots of information available here (please scroll down to see this) about the transition process and how we will support you and your child before they start here in September.   

Those of you who have already been allocated a place to start in Year 7 in September should have also received an email from us directing you to this information, which also contains a link to our online Admissions Form.  Please complete this form as soon as possible as this ensures we have the most up to date information about you and your child.

For anyone who missed the Welcome Evening presentation, held on 15 March, the presentation can be found below.

If you have any questions or need any more information, please contact us either by phone on 01803 869200 or by email at 

We look forward to meeting you all soon.
