Year 11 Final Assembly

On Wednesday 17th May, Year 11 students attended a final assembly before their GCSE examinations commenced.
The day started with traditional shirt signings in their forms followed by an emotional assembly in the School Hall. The occasion was filled with a mixture of sentiments as the students were taken through their five years at Kingsbury High School. Students took to the floor to thank their form tutors and then after a musical interlude, they were send-off filled with emotions.

Stage Leader, Mr Das added “At Kingsbury we celebrate this important moment in their lives, confident that they are ready and able to take the next step. I look forward to their future with a great sense of optimism, and wish Year 11 good health, happiness and every success.”
A special thank you to Latalia, Antanaye, Ozioma and Ayomide for their dance performance as well as Anatanaye and Ayomide (singers), Gautam (bass), Fred (guitar) and Atrin (drums) for their Musical performance.

We wish all our Year 11s all the best for their exams and their future.

All staff barn dance

On Friday 12 May one of KHS’ PE teachers, Sian High organised an all staff barn dance in order to raise money for the charity CALM. (Campaign Against Living Miserably)
This is part of her fundraising campaign during which she is also set to do a 44km walk from Crowley to Brighton.
‘I’m doing this walk in memory of my friend John Nemrova who recently took his own life. It breaks my heart to think that we couldn’t help him and didn’t recognise the signs.’ Sian said. ‘I want to try and raise awareness of the silent epidemic that is male suicide.’
The barn dance raised £180 and if you would like to help her raise money, you can use the link below to donate:

Young Enterprise – final destination West London

Our Young Enterprisers have been recognised with the Most Innovative Product award at the West London Final last night against fierce competition. Unfortunately this meant that this was not enough to reach the next round of the Young Enterprise contest, but we are proud of their valiant efforts to get this far.

A special mention must go to the winners from Greenford High School, who won with their idea of a children’s book helping to explain the plight of refugee children.

Please congratulate the Sixth Formers on their efforts if you see them, they will continue to sell ‘I Meme It’ after their exams, so please be on the lookout. Massive thanks to Rachel Kitley and Michael Senior for attending and lending their support on the night.

EPQ presentations

On Friday 28th April, ten A level students had the opportunity to showcase their excellent work during the annual EPQ presentations. It was a proud and emotional day for the students and, as with the brilliant HPQ evening earlier in the month, a great occasion for the school in celebrating intellectual curiosity, the pursuit of academic research and individual student achievements.

The projects covered a diverse range of topics, including ‘Woman in Afghanistan’, ‘Transracial adoption’ and ‘India’s economic development’. During the outstanding presentations the students gave an overview of their research methods, explained often personal reasons for choosing specific topics,set out their conclusions as well as educating the audience. All ten students gave an exceptional performance, showing remarkable knowledge and interest in their chosen areas of research.

Year 9 Higher Project Qualification

On Wednesday 19th April 2017, 120 of our most gifted and able students in Year 9 spent the evening presenting on some of the most intelligible topics they have researched. Since September, the students have been completing the Level 2 Higher Project Qualification. As one of the core requirements of the qualification, students were to present the research and the essay of their academic topic to a board of assessors.

Ranging from women’s rights to whether war could be justified, students’ presentations were thought provoking, captivating and exciting. Despite a few nerves, throughout the evening all students displayed confidence and overcame some of their biggest fears: presenting in front of a large crowd. The evening was thoroughly enjoyed by a wide range of parents and staff. We wish Year 9 all the best with the rest of their Level 2 Higher Project Qualification and that they get the result they deserve!
