End of Term Arrangements

Kingsmeadow will close for the Christmas holidays on Friday 16th December, with students being dismissed at 12:15pm and during the final week of term there are a few events taking place which you might want to make a note of.

Wednesday 14th December – Christmas Jumper Day in aid of Save the Children

Students are invited to take part in the day and wear their favourite Christmas jumper to school, by making a £1 donation, payable to their tutor. All money donated will go to Save the Children UK.

Students must wear their school trousers or skirt with their Christmas jumper and students who do not want to take part must wear their full school uniform as normal.

We are immensely proud of the students who represented Kingsmeadow, who all showed a vast amount of courage to perform their routine in front of 15 other schools and more than spectators.

The routine consisted of tumbling and complex acrobatics skills and our gymnasts executed it to a high standard, showing quality throughout.

REAL Exhibition Showcase

Kingsmeadow will host a REAL Exhibition Showcase over two nights, on Thursday 1st December from 6pm-7:15pm and Friday 2nd December from 5pm-6:15pm.

REAL is our innovative project based learning programme that promotes and enhances character traits and life skills to prepare our students to become independent learners for the 21st century.

This year’s first REAL Exhibition Showcase will feature a performance of drama, poetry, dance and song  by our Year 7 & Year 8 REAL classes to showcase their learning in our first REAL project of this academic year; Pride of Place.
