Induction Day

We had a great day with our new intake, who will be joining us in September.

During the New Year 7 Induction Day, our new students received a warm welcome from Headteacher Mrs Lowe, met their form tutors and got to enjoy various activities around the school, such as making rainbow fizz in science and a name badge in design technology; as well as maths and English classes. They also tested out the food on offer in the school canteens.

We look forward to welcoming all our new students back in September!

Post 16 Evening

Year 10 Post 16 Evening was a huge success with a wide variety of exhibitors including colleges, sixth forms, training agencies, employers and the Armed Forces.

We had a good turnout of students and parents who are now thinking about what happens after secondary school. We hope all who attended found the evening inspiring and interesting and that you may have left with more ideas about your options than when you arrived.

All our exhibitors were very impressed with the interest and the questions asked on the evening.

Primary Electronics

A group of Year 5 pupils from Meadowbank Primary School attended an afternoon Electronics session at The Kingsway School.

The main objectives were to learn about components and how to put together a circuit onto prototype board. They watched a video and then worked in teams using a circuit diagram to build and test an alarm circuit which reacted to light. They were really excited when they got the circuit functioning and the classroom filled with the sound of sirens as each alarm was successfully tested and working.

The pupils were then confident to develop their circuits to meet their needs such as the alarm reacting to moisture, darkness and dryness. They took away their circuits and circuit diagrams with them to show their fellow peers.

It was a pleasure to meet the pupils and their teachers, and it was an enjoyable afternoon for all.

Local MP Visit

On Friday 8th June we had a lovely visit from our local MP Mary Robinson. Mary is a great supporter of the work we are doing here at Kingsway, in particular in relation to our academic pathways in to STEM careers.

During her visit Mary saw some super bright Year 8 mathematicians solving angle problems, a class of skilled Year 7 students who were loving the electronics curriculum available here and a group of gifted Year 9 students who had made rockets in their lab and were testing them out on the field.

One of the Year 9 students, Ella Stirling, who was Stockport’s Youth Parliament rep last year talked to Mary about her career plan to be a political journalist. Mary was really impressed with not only the standard of STEM education taking place at Kingsway, but also the broad and balanced curriculum we are offering to support our students’ future success in a range of careers.
