Kingsbury Students conquer Mount Snowdon!
On Saturday 4th July Mr Cope, Miss Davies and Mr Warren took several of the year 10 and 11 students going to Ecuador next summer on a sponsored climb of Mount Snowdon.
The students were raising money to help them with the four week community project they are involved with in Ecuador in the summer of 2016. In total it took the group 5 hours 36 minutes to complete the climb with students embracing the weather conditions.

High acheivers in art
A group of our arts students have produced some fantastic pieces of art work over the course of the year.
Opting to take Art GCSE at Kingsbury School is a challenge as students have to complete the course in one school year. Standards and expectations are high and the most successful students are those who can work independently, are dedicated to the course, want to improve and have drive to achieve their target grades and beyond. This year has been no exception and students have achieved some fantastic results.
The course is intense and the volume and standard of work required is always a shock for students at the beginning of the year. However, those who are determined to succeed constantly improve their skills and the quality of their work throughout the year. This means giving up hours of their free time in school and staying behind after school each week to continue with work and receive 1:1 tuition and support. Quality and standard of work is extremely high this year and this is down to the individual ideas and range of skills students have demonstrated.
Bethany Blundell- Bethany is a triplet and her and her 2 sisters have all completed the course this year and all 3 of them are expected to achieve beyond their initial target grade due to their commitment to their studies. Bethany’s drawing of her dog is created in pencil crayon, this was an additional piece of work she created at the end of the course. It is based on a photograph she has taken.
Shannon Carter- Shannon’s painting in acrylic is her final piece for her coursework. The coursework element is worth 60% of students overall GCSE grade and this year was based on ‘Colour’. Shannon used artist research as inspiration and her own photography to create this piece which is a bold ending to her project. Shannon is in Year 10 and hadn’t had any art lessons for a year up until the start of the course. She has worked hard all year to improve and achieve work of a consistently high standard.
