End of Term 2016

School will close to all students at 12:15pm on Wednesday 20th July for the summer break. There will be a lunch service available if required. The school’s Learning Zone will be open until 2.45pm for students wishing to stay to catch up with work.  

We have been liaising with the bus company regarding the Scholar buses and can confirm the following:

  • The 849 to High Spen and the 847 to Lobley Hill will be at school for pick up at 12.15pm.
  • There will be NO 848 to Bensham or 846 to the Teams on this day; therefore students will be required to make their way home using alternative methods.    

The new school term starts on Wednesday 7th September 2016 for students in Years 8 – 11. Students joining Year 7 will start the day before (Tuesday 6th September 2016) to get used to the procedures in their new school.  All students are expected to be in school promptly by 8.30 am each day.

Students wishing to join our Sixth Form will be required to complete their enrolment during the week commencing Tuesday 6th September 2016 and therefore they should make themselves available.

We would like to thank you for your ongoing support of our school and we wish your son/daughter a restful and safe summer break.

Sixth Form Enrolment – 14th July

Students who wish to attend Kingsmeadow Sixth Form are invited to attend an enrolment event on Thursday 14th July here in school.  The event will begin at 9.45am and offers students the chance to begin preparing for life in sixth form, which can be both an exciting and a daunting prospect.


We will issue reading lists and key information about uniform, standards and expectations as well as starting the administration process (with this in mind, students should bring contact and medical details). This is also another opportunity for students to discuss subject options.

Year 11 students who are unable to attend this event are advised to contact Amanda Weatherill in the Sixth Form Centre who will arrange for them to be sent an information pack including an enrolment appointment for Tuesday September 6th.
