    • Slides from Year 11 Information Evening
      Thank you to our amazing Year 11 students and their parents/carers who demonstrated their commitment to their future by attending and participating in our Y11 Information Evening.  Working together we are championing the potential of all our Year 11 students! 

     

    • Change of Tutor Group - 7.5
      Letter to parents and carers of students in tutor group 7.5 regarding a change of tutor group

     

    • Year 11 Mock Interviews
      Kingsdown School offers the opportunity for all Year 11 to take part in a Mock interview with external interviewers. This will be on Wednesday 18th October and will involve students preparing a letter of application and a CV for a job chosen from a range of suggestions - from lawyer or nurse to IT support worker, from accountant or engineer to mechanic or childcare assistant.

      Students will come to school in smart clothes appropriate for an interview; they will need to attend the specified venue on time and after the interview will receive supportive feedback. This is an important part of preparing our Year 11s for their next step - all will face interviews in the coming year - whether for College; part-time jobs or apprenticeships.

      Kingsdown School is extremely grateful to our volunteers from the local business community who give up their time to support our students.

    • Invitation to parents and carers of Year 11 to the Keystage 4 Information Evening at 6.30pm Wednesday 11th October.  All Year 11 students are expected to attend.  Please use the contact details in the following linked letter if you're not able to attend with your child.

     

    • School is closing early on 27th September due to Open Evening.  Students will be dismissed at 1pm.
