Ian Metcalfe (1976)
My older brother and I were both at a state junior school. Dad was a shift charge engineer at Hams Hall Power Station. He could not have afforded to send us to a fee-paying school, but fortunately we both passed the KES exam at such a level that Solihull LEA funded our fees.
So much of what our extended family has today we owe to the extraordinary education we enjoyed at KES.
