Extra! Extra! Read all about it!
The great news kept rolling in last week…
Firstly, from Miss Wildgoose, who was very proud of our girls badminton team who lost out to Bramhall in the County Finals last week. The girls were fantastic and a credit to Kingsway showing great skill and sportsmanship. Congratulations to Rocio McGilvary, Freya James, Katie jackson and Abigail Fung.
Also last week, our students attended the first Year 10 in the GMHAP (Greater Manchester High Achievers Programme) - a Debating Evening at Loreto College. Mrs Flood, who accompanied the students, was pulled aside at the end of the evening by the vice Principal who was so impressed with our students and commented on their maturity and how well they represented our school. Well done to Connie Gwilt, Charlotte Green, Hassan Nawaz, Amy West, Ella Stirling, Callum Grayson, Lily Fogwill, Ruby Conroy, Olivia Ashmore, Sarah Morgan, Pippa Woods and Megan Evans.
We also received the results of the external Food exam last week; congratulations to the 26 Year 11 students who successfully passed the course and 12 students who achieved a DISTINCTION. Mrs Guess was delighted with results! There were some amazing individual achievements by Fatou Guei, Sarah Mather, Joel Thomas, Crystal Woods, Joshua Naughton, Ella-Louise Holmes, Amelia Ogden, Tamzin Moore, Mac Pieterse, Grace Ashton, Brooke Newman, and Bryn Thomas.
Some other news from last week will of course be our Ofsted Inspection on Wednesday. We are unable to share the outcome of the inspection until the report has been formally released by Ofsted. I will write to parents with details of the inspection once we have been given the approval to do so. However, I would like to say how proud I was of our staff and students on the day who understood the importance of the day for our school and ensured that Inspectors saw how proud they were of our school. Thank you too to the many, many parents who contributed to the inspection and shared their positive views of the school.
On a similar note, can we remind parents that as part of our drive to increase communication between home and school, that we have subscribed to Class Charts. Class Charts is a programme which can be used on a website or the app enabling you to track your son/daughter’s school day on a daily basis. As well as giving immediate feedback on merits for work and positive conduct around class, it enables you to see areas which have been addressed by staff, such as demerits and sanctions such as detentions. All parents have been provided with personalised log in facilities, but if you have lost this please contact your child's Pastoral Head of Year to request a replacement. We hope as many parents as possible will use this line of communication but if you have any difficulties please let us know.
Have a great week everyone,
Mrs J. Lowe
