On Wednesday 12 September we had our first ‘Girls Active’ extra-curricular club night at KHS.
Students in Year 5 & 6 from Oliver Goldsmith, Kingsbury Green, Fryent & Roe Green primary schools came to the Upper School site to take part in various sporting activities such as football, netball & cricket.
We have a team of ‘Girls Active’ leaders in Year 6 who worked together to promote the club in their schools by leading assemblies and making posters to advertise it.
The activities were then led by their mentors – a mixture of our Year 10 and 13 students. The club is running every Wednesday until the 10 October and there will be a variety of activities for to the girls to try each week.
Year 12 started with an inspiring talk from a former student who now works as Head of Events for the largest event management company in Europe. His tips were: be nice and polite (employers want this); work hard at getting the grades (it will be needed to get you an interview); and learn your craft (if you have an interest or career in mind).
Then students chose their extra-curricular opportunities followed by talking with alumni about careers. Year 12 enjoyed the leadership training along with registering with Unifrog to research university courses and Pathways CTM for career opportunities and apprenticeships.
KHS Sixth Form sixth form achieved 61% A*-B in 2018 so our A level results were outstanding for the 3rd year running. Biology and Chemistry achieved over 70% A*-B which the medical students were pleased to know. Our Sixth Form is rated in the top 10% nationally: so students have joined a successful centre. We welcomed over thirty new students to the Sixth Form from other centres which has significantly increased from 2017. Over 60% of Year 11 enrolled with us and nearly all of our top students at GCSE decided to stay with us. With four students securing Oxbridge places and three off to Medical school, students were assured they can get top grades at KHS as well as experience an amazing extra-curricular package.
Enjoy Year 12 everyone.

On Wednesday 18th July, a group of forty Year 8 Accelerated Readers (AR) were invited to their Awards Ceremony to celebrate their fantastic achievement in reading. Collectively, during this academic year, our students have read 1 696 155 words and they have passed 330 quizzes. Also, according to the student voice survey, they have developed a real passion for reading and they feel more confident about their reading skills.
Well done to all AR students!!!!
A big thank you to Marcia Vernon and Tracey Fidalgo for running and supporting inspiring reading sessions and all members of staff who have assisted us during this academic year.
Thank you to all staff particularly those that ran an event. We had a great turn out and the weather was fantastic, the students showed great determination in the heat to perform to the best of their ability. The winners for each year group were:
Yr 7 – B
Yr 8 – Y
Yr 9 – Y
Yr 10 – S
These scores will be put together with their interform scores to determine our best sporting form group in each year, a trophy will be presented to each winning form during the first week back in September.
Year 13 received their awards for excellence in lessons and engagement in the wider life of the School. Staff, governors and parents attended the event on Monday 02 July. Many thanks to Miss Hollingworth and Mrs Cox for their work getting the evening together as well as Erik for the video highlights.
It was the perfect way for some of the KHS teacher to cool down during the heatwave! Year 8 students organised the ‘Soak the teacher’ event, as part of one of their many charity events they were holding this year.
Thank you to all the teachers that volunteered to take part.
