Kingsbury raises over £1,000 for Children in Need
On Friday 18th November the whole school supported Children in Need with various fundraising activities.
In addition to pupils wearing their own clothes in return for a donation there were cake sales, an opportunity to throw wet sponges at a teacher, and guess the name of the bear to name but three. In total we raised over £1,000 for this worthwhile cause.
In addition, Mr Field (Science teacher, head of year 11 and head of Polaris house) and Mr Leach (Head of Science) agreed that if the school raised over £1,000 they would shave their heads. During lunchtime today (25 November 2016) students could raise further money for Children in Need by paying £1.00 to watch them have their head shaved.
Well done to all students and staff for this fantastic effort and particularly to Mr Field and Mr Leach.

Year 9 – Harvey Smith- continues to excel at chosen sport of Powerboat Racing
As a school, Kingsbury is always keen to hear about achievements of our students outside school.
For sometime now Harvey Smith (Year 9) has been celebrating success in his chosen sport of Powerboat racing. Recently he has had some excellent results in races both in the UK and abroad. Over the last few weeks he has competed in Norway (finishing 1st overall), Chasewater (finishing 3rd overall), and the Estonia (finishing 7th overall). Racing at this level is extremely competitive and requires dedication and commitment.

More success for Year 7 Footballers
The year 7 boys football team is keeping up with the success of the girls team with a semi-final win last week.
The tournament was held at Ash green School.
The boys won the semi-final tournament, and are now in the finals that will take place next week at Nicholas Chamberlain School.
Not only did they play great football, but they were also exemplary in their behaviour and attitude as well.
Special mention to Bertie Brown who was Captain and led from the front, but well done to all of the lads who were involved representing Kingsbury School for the first time. We’re very proud of you.
