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.

For Year 11 students who wish to join KES Sixth Form in September 2020 and were unable to attend results day, you still have time to enrol by coming into school on Wednesday 2nd September 2020 between 9am and 11am. Please report to visitor reception and bring the enrolment forms that you were emailed in the summer. Students from other schools are also welcome to attend on this day. Please contact Mrs Griffiths on 01702 545771, extension 3222, or by email to for further information.

Students who are currently at KES and wish to join the Sixth Form complete their applications 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 need to be completed at these meetings and a confirmation of a place is given at this point.

Students from other schools and colleges need to download and complete an external student application form - see downloads below. External students’ are then invited to an introductions event in February. 

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.
