KES Community Issue 10

It has been a delight to welcome staff and boys back to school this term, and for the school to regain some sense of normality. I have taken particular pleasure in seeing and hearing the boys enjoying spending time with their peers. Of course, school doesn’t look quite as they left it in March due to the necessary adjustments to make it Covid-secure, but the boys’ desire to learn, enthusiasm to contribute, and keenness to connect with each other is as evident as ever.

In this special half term edition of KES Community, you will be able to read about some of the things that boys have been doing this term. From the Shells beginning their journey with us to the Founder’s Day prize-giving ceremony and everything in between, it really has been wonderful to see the vibrancy of school life return to campus.

I offer my warm wishes to staff, boys and parents for a restful half term break.

Dr Katy Ricks
Chief Master

Collected during the first six months of lockdown, KE Spirit provides a snapshot as to what our entire community – pupils, staff, parents and alumni from KES and KEHS – decided to do with the time that was given to them. Read KE Spirit.
