Join our Sixth Form

This year's Sixth Form Open Evening will be held on Wednesday 18th October 2023. Students currently attending other schools in Year 11 are also  welcome to come along and find out more about life in our Sixth Form. If you are unable to make our Open Evening and would like to visit our Sixth Form during the school day, please contact Mrs Ramdin on the details below.

If you would like information on the courses available, please take a look at our course guide in the downloads section below. 

A large proportion of our Year 11 students continue their studies in our Sixth Form, however, we also welcome applications from students in Year 11 in other schools across Essex and Southend. We also take students in Year 12 who wish to transfer from their current provider. 

All Year 11 students at KES will be invited into KES with their parents to provide them with the opportunity to discuss their KS5 options in more detail with key members of staff.

Students currently at other schools, are able to attend our Externals Open Day in February 2024. This event is a fantastic opportunity for students to spend the day with us, experiencing a typical Sixth Form lesson in the subject areas they are interested in studying and also meeting current students and the Sixth Form Team.

If you wish to join us, please complete the application form in the downloads below, return it to Mrs Ramdin via and we will then send you further details of the event.

We fully appreciate that looking ahead to post 16 education can be daunting, especially if you are joining a new school, but we are here to ensure we support your transition, with events in school specifically designed to ensure you have made the right course decision as well as making friends before September.
