King Edward VI High School has launched a brand new app for smartphones and tablets called "My Ed". The My Ed app shows you up to date information about all aspects of your child’s school life. It allows you to view information and keep up to date with what’s going on in school; it allows you to view key information about your child’s school activity and send and receive FREE messages to and from school via your mobile device. It will be the easiest and best way to find out everything you need to know about your child's performance in school and to get access to some of the most important information.
The app is free to download and can be accessed via the Apple App Store or Google Play Store on Android devices. Headteacher, Mr Christey, has said "We are always looking at new ways to keep parents and carers informed about their child's performance in school and share their achievements. This new app will help us do that and will be a fast and efficient method of communication with parents and carers as well as being a source of useful and important information, so you will always be up-to-date with all the great and exciting things going on in school".
To download, visit your app store, search for "My Ed", download the app and follow the instructions. If you are having any difficulties contact our IT Support Team at email@example.com or on 01785 258546. For more information visit the My Ed website at www.myedschoolapp.com.
Macmillan Coffee Morning took place in the Food Technology rooms on Friday 30th September 2016. This was a fundraising event supported by Mrs Katabalwa, Mrs Essery and children of all years who helped supervise the event. There were many cakes that were made throughout the morning and visitors were able to eat these cakes through the day. Pupils did a raffle and they had many prizes and entries throughout the school. They raised a fantastic amount of over £600. There were three slot sessions that lasted an hour long. The Macmillan coffee morning happened all over Britain and the money that was raised will go to research into Cancer. Everybody who went had a fantastic time and really enjoyed themselves. Hopefully next year they can raise even more money.
