Join the Sixth Form

Applications are welcomed from students in Year 11 across Essex and Southend. We also take students in Year 12 who wish to transfer from their current provider.

Our 2018 Open Evening was held on Wednesday 17 October 2018. If you did not make the event and would like to look around during the school day prior to making an application please contact or telephone to make an appointment. The presentation from the event is available to download below.

Year 11 students who are currently at KES and wish to join the Sixth Form in September 2019 will complete their application in the second half of the Autumn Term. We hold informal meetings with all students and parents between November and January where we discuss post 16 options available to them. Application forms for entry into our Sixth Form will need to be completed at these meetings and a confirmation of a place will be given at this point.

Students from other schools and colleges need to download and complete an external student application form - see downloads below. On receipt of the form we will invite students to our external students’ introductions event on Tuesday 12 February 2019.

Final enrolment takes place each August on the day that students receive their GCSE results.

External students are given a buddy who will show them around for the first few weeks to help them acclimatise to the new environment. We pride ourselves on having a friendly and supportive Sixth Form and find that students settle really quickly.
