On 16th December the Year 11 Business & Economics classes went on a visit to Cadbury World to find out what type of business Cadbury is, its history and about its recent takeover by Mondeléz International. We were also shown part of the Cadbury factory – learning how they make, decorate and package chocolate, ready to be sold.
The visit was educational as we learned about production in a large company which linked in to our Business lessons. We also learned about the humble beginnings of the company and the many advertising campaigns they’ve used over the years. However the visit was also fun, with a 4D cinema experience, singers outside the factory and, of course, lots of chocolate.

King Edward VI High School is pleased to announce record-breaking examination results - with over a third of all students attaining at A*-A grades in at least one of their GCSE subjects.
There are far too many students to single out for their outstanding achievement, however a particular mention must be made for the achievement of Beth Poynton who achieved a fantastic nine A*s and three As.
Mr Christey, in his first year as Headteacher, was delighted with improvements in attainment and commended the "excellent achievement of our talented students" and congratulated staff and students on their hard work and commitment.
A Level Results Day will be held in the Main Hall on Thursday 13th August 2015 and GCSE Results Day will be held in the Main Hall on Thursday 20th August 2015. School will open from 9.00am until 12.00pm. If you are unable to collect the results yourself, please send in a stamped addressed envelope (A5 size). Alternatively you may wish to send a relative to collect them on your behalf. If doing this, please ensure you send them with written permission to do so, they will need to sign on your behalf.
Look forward to seeing you on results day.
