Year 8 Graduation

On Tuesday 11th July, Year 8 students graduated from the foundation stage of a two year programme entitled the ‘Kingsbury Curriculum’. As part of this curriculum, a series of experiences, called the ‘Kingsbury Guarantee’, were offered to students to allow them to explore their talents and abilities. Students completed extended homework projects and community work, organised events and took part in residential activities.
On the evening of the graduation guests were invited to view a short film with clips showing scenes and photos from the various projects in the Tyler’s Hall followed by the graduation ceremony.

The Co-Headteachers opened the ceremony welcoming parents, family, friends and carers to the school. Then the Head Boy and Head Girl hosted the ceremony introducing the form tutors who announced the students and their grades. The Year 8 students arrived on stage from a red carpet, to receive their graduation gift bags and, shortly afterwards, their framed graduation certificate.

Guests were treated to three performances from our exceptionally talented students, Khalid and Lujein and their touching performance of Hallelujah, Xane (Miles) and his thoughtful poet and finally our energetic dancers Ruxandra, Ariana, Denisa and Bianca.
The evening culminated in the unveiling of the 2017 honours board in the Tylers Hall. Jay Parekh and Abhishna Yogarajan.received the trophies for the most highly praised boy and girl graduates.

On Tuesday 7th July, Year 8 students graduated from the foundation stage of a two year programme entitled the ‘Kingsbury Curriculum’. As part of this curriculum, a series of experiences, called the ‘Kingsbury Guarantee’, were offered to students to allow them to explore their talents and abilities. Students completed extended homework projects and community work, organised events and took part in residential activities. This year, Challenge 271, gave them the opportunity to take part in a number of charity events to help Mr Froy raise money for Kidney Research UK. They documented their progress online and in their ‘Kingsbury Guarantee’ booklet.

On the evening of the graduation invited guests enjoyed canapés in the Quiet Garden whilst they were entertained with musical performances. They were then led to the Tylers Hall where the graduation ceremony took place.

Kingsbury High School’s newly appointed Head Boy and Head Girl opened the ceremony followed by Year 8 students arriving at the stage, through a balloon arch and onto a red carpet, to receive their graduation gift bags and, shortly afterwards, their framed graduation certificate.

The evening culminated in the unveiling of honours boards in the Tylers Hall, provided by a legacy Nigel Jamieson left the school when he retired last summer. Hristu (Andrei) Roman and Duvina Toolsee received the new individual trophies for the most highly praised boy and girl graduates.

Five hundred parents and family members attended.
