Announcement regarding Erudition Schools Trust
As you know, Kingsbury School became an Academy as part of the Erudition Schools Trust (EST) in March this year.
You may also be aware that EST is backed by a company called K12, based in the US. Unfortunately K12 has informed EST and the board of governors of their intention to withdraw from their arrangement to host EST next year.
Although this decision is unexpected we are confident that, working in conjunction with EST, the Department for Education (DFE) and Warwickshire County Council (WCC), we will be able to identify a similar academy support structure and ensure a smooth transition over the next few months. We would like to reassure you that during this process there will be no impact upon your children or on the school’s funding and the day-to-day operation of the school will not be affected.
Please be assured that we will be keeping our staff and parents fully informed throughout the process. If you have any concerns please don’t hesitate to contact school.

Year 7 residential trip to Whitemoor Lakes a huge success.
Monday 21st to Wednesday 23rd September saw our annual residential trip for year 7's to Whitemoor Lakes.
During our stay at Whitemoor Lake our year 7’s showed a fantastic attitude and determination when facing a number of challenges presented to them. Their behaviour was exemplary throughout the three days spent at the residential centre. During the activities the pupils learnt valuable skills such as team work, enthusiasm and more importantly perseverance when placed in groups with pupils they have had little or no contact with. They developed their social skills making new friendships, which was the aim of the trip for the new year 7’s.
The Whitemoor Lake staff were very positive with their comments about the pupils from Kingsbury School particularly with their behaviour.
Specific pupils were awarded with certificates for enthusiasm, team work and effort, which our team leader stated that more of our pupils should have been awarded these certificates.
Again I was immensely proud of our pupils who all made it a worthwhile trip and are all a great representation of what Kingsbury School aims to promote.
Well done to all of the pupils who attended the 2015 Whitemoor Lakes trip.
