Teacher Training Day 16 October 2015
May we take this opportunity to thank parents/carers for making arrangements on Friday 16th October so that our school staff could take part in training/professional development.
We were pleased to host Hywell Roberts from Independent Thinking who delivered an inspirational day related to teaching and learning. At Kingsbury, we are committed to teaching and learning development and remaining at the cutting edge of our profession.
New bus service from Tamworth via Fazeley & Dosthill
We are pleased to be able to confirm that Central Buses are to introduce a new additional service from Tamworth to Kingsbury School commencing on Monday 2nd November 2015.
Two additional journeys serving school will be added in order to address the overcrowding of the Arriva 115 service which currently runs and will continue to operate. A Central Buses bus will depart from the school car park at 15.20 and travel towards Tamworth via Dosthill and Two Gates. The service will accept Your Staffordshire cards allowing students to travel for £1.20 maximum fare (some local fares will be less than this). An inward service will operate from Tamworth in the mornings.
The additional service is shown highlighted yellow on the attached timetable.
Year 7 footballers celebrate 8-0 win.
The Year 7 team took on Shipston in the Warwickshire School's Cup competition and I am delighted to report they were victors with a fantastic 8-0 score line!
As you can imagine as a manager I am very proud of the commitment and passion that was shown by all those that represented our school, but even more so by the empathy and compassion they showed towards our opponents. It quickly became evident that we were a much better team than Shipston (enforced the ‘Mercy Rule’ at 8-0), however at no time did our lads show any arrogance or bad sportsmanship, which made me very proud and this was also mentioned to me at the end of the game by the opposing manager. All of the players got some time on the pitch and gave me 100% as I had asked for. A special mention goes to the goal scorers, however the whole team need to be congratulated. We now look forward to a Quarter Final match-up away at Bilton School in Rugby.
Well done lads on a great start to your football career at Kingsbury School.
Year 10 footballers win 8-0
The year 10's started this season with an emphatic 8-0 win over Shipston School in the Warwickshire county cup.
The goal scorers were Louis Hemming, James Oakley, Oliver Burgundy, Oliver Lyons all getting a brace each. The pupils showed great sportsmanship throughout the game. Another thank you to Nick Ball who came out of his way to support his year group and be a linesman. Well done. – Mr McAteer
