Info about KEVIGS for PORG

2. 11. 2017

Dear School in Prague,

I’m writing to you to tell you a bit about our school and the sort of things that happen here. So first of all let me introduce you to the school, KEVIGS, or more formally known as King Edward VI Grammar School.


As you can tell by the name we are a grammar school, which means in order to get a place at our school you have to pass a test called the 11+, you take the test in your last year of primary school (10-11 year old). You start the school in year 7 (11-12 year old) and stay here until year 11 (15-16 year old).


In a typical school day we have five periods (lessons) that are all an hour long and have 5 minutes between each lesson as changeover time. Our day starts at 8:50 and ends at 3:45, with a 20 minute break and an hour lunch. Our day goes a bit like this:

  • Form time (15 mins)
  • Period 1 (hour)
  • Period 2 (hour)
  • Break (20 mins)
  • Period 3 (hour)
  • Lunch (hour)
  • Period 4 (hour)
  • Period 5 (hour)
  • Home time!


We study a wide range of subjects like religious education, physical education, languages, food tech, English, maths, science, art and many more. My personal favourites are: Graphics, drama and history. We have lots of opportunities to get involved in lots of different things, for example: cadets, school plays (drama), sports teams (football, netball, rugby etc. etc.), school trips (like skiing in America), poetry competitions and more. We also have a smart uniform, which personally I really like. This is what our uniform consists of:

  • A blazer
  • A yellow tie for lower school (years 7 and 8)
  • A red tie for upper school (years 9,10 and 11)
  • A white shirt
  • A grey skirt or grey trousers
  • Black tights or white socks
  • Black shoes

In my opinion I think I am very lucky to be able to attend King Edward VI Grammar School. I hope you’ve learned a bit about our school and we look forward to hearing back from you,

Yours sincerely a y9 pupil
