Bring your reading book to school!

Regular reading can improve your vocabulary, spelling and maths scores, and research has shown that reading has more of a positive impact on your overall exam results in secondary school than other influences.

For this reason, you must bring a reading book to school with you as part of your day-to-day essential equipment

If you are in Year 7-11, make sure you have your reading book ready from Monday 6th November!

 

 

Squash Success

Abd-Allah Eissa 7J played in the British Junior Closed (which is the biggest National Junior Squash Tournament in the calendar) last weekend. Despite his knee injury, he managed to reach the semi-finals of the U13s category. This has led to the opportunity for consideration in representing England in the European championship next year

YEAR 10 PARENTS’ MEETING

 THURSDAY 14th SEPTEMBER, 2017

UPPER SCHOOL HALL 7.00PM. - “LIFE IN UPPER SCHOOL”

 

I would like to invite all parents and carers of Year 10 students to the above meeting, intended to give information about important issues which will arise for students in Years 10 and 11.  We will also outline the school’s expectations of students during this time and give you an overview of the structure of Years 10 and 11. There will be opportunities for you to ask questions and to meet tutors and senior staff.

 

Communication between parents and teachers becomes increasingly important in Years 10 and 11 and we hope that this evening will mark the beginning of a successful partnership.

 

I do hope that you will be able to join us for this event, but if you cannot do so, please do not hesitate to make contact if you need information.

Year 13 Parents Evening

Thursday 13th October 5 - 8 pm. Kenilworth Sixth Form, Rouncil Lane

 

Dear all 

Across the country many schools are becoming academies and the Government recently stated that they wish all schools to become academies before the end of the current parliament The governors have begun to explore what this means for Kenilworth School and we want to tell you at this very early stage what we are doing. At our meeting on 24 November 2015 the Governing Body discussed the issue of academy status and how this might affect Kenilworth School and Sixth Form. A working party of governors was set up and they have been gathering relevant information on academy conversion. 

 

At our meeting on 8 March 2016, governors agreed to register our interest in academy conversion with the Department for Education (DfE). This does not commit the school to becoming an academy.  However, it does mean that the DfE will provide the school with a named contact who will help the Governing Body access the information needed in order to make an informed decision as to whether applying for academy status is in the best interests of Kenilworth School. Governors will carry out a due diligence exercise so we can understand both the risks and opportunities of academy conversion. 

 

Once this exercise is complete we will carry out a full and open consultation and make available the relevant information to all interested parties including staff, parents, students, local schools, the local authority and the local community, before the Governing Body makes a final decision.  

 

In the meantime if you would like to comment on the idea please write to the Chair of Governors at the school or send an email to chair.governors@ksnadmin.ksn.org.ukPlease mark your correspondence Academy. If there are any particular questions you would like the working party to find the answer to, please also use these communication channels. 

 

Governors are committed to seeking the views of all interested parties and we will continue to keep you informed through the school newsletter and the school website.

Chair of Governors, Kenilworth School and Sixth Form
