What The Good Schools Guide says..
Classes are still taught in the half-timbered ‘big school’ where Shakespeare himself would have studied – a fabulous room with an extraordinary beamed and cantilevered ceiling and ancient desks pitted with centuries worth of schoolboy initials, all still in situ. This sits directly over the Guildhall, where Shakespeare’s father presided as the high bailiff...
What the school says...
Converted to an academy 2011.
Thank the school
Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.
This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.
Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

What The Good Schools Guide says
Since 2010, Mr Bennet Carr BA FRGS (40s). Undergraduate studies in geography at Queen Mary’s College, London, then PGCE at Institute of Education, followed by The Bishop’s Stortford High School (head of geography and sixth form, assistant head). Influential deputy headmaster of St Olave’s Grammar School, London, for eight years.
Enjoys the independence that has come with academy status and likes being at a small school where he can get to know pupils and be 'at every production, every concert and every match.' Fanatical about small details making a big difference (shirts tucked in, skirting boards retouched every Friday evening). Parents say he has hugely improved communication. Married with two daughters.
GCSE and A level results are very strong. In 2016, 75 per cent of GCSEs were A*/A. At A...
Special Education Needs
At KES we have a Learning Support Coordinator, who is also a full-time member of staff. His role is to support any boy who has specific learning difficulties. The form this support takes will of course vary, but in essence it means that he creates individual education plans (IEPs) with the pupil, and monitors these where needed. He also liaises with any necessary outside support agency, and acts as a facilitator for meetings involving agencies, the parents and the school. There is also a Gifted and talented Coordinator, just appointed, who will be responsible for organising and monitoring activities to support our most able pupils. Although the school has very few pupils requiring specialist support, we would always be ready and willing to provide support where needed, and if at all possible.
