David Dein visit

October 8, 2014 in Front Page News, Uncategorized by Mrs K Rose

On 7th October we were thrilled to welcome football entrepreneur and businessman David Dein to school. The former Vice Chairman of Arsenal FC and the FA and president of Arsenal Ladies FC spent time with students in a Q&A session before delivering an inspiring assembly to Year 11. David was one of the architects of the Premier League in 1992 and has been at the forefront of many of the important changes in football including the introduction of Goal Line Technology. He engaged and entertained students and staff with his presentation, in which he highlighted the success factors in football and how these apply equally to education and life in general. We thought that one of his quotes in particular sums up our ethos at Kingsbury: “Be better tomorrow than today.” A big Thank You to David and Speakers for Schools for organising this inspirational event.

For help and support with plans Connexions have a number of outreach centres to support students when they have finished Year 11. It is a good idea to ring first to check opening hours and availability :

http://www.connexions-bs.co.uk/main.php?section=6063

If you are looking for an Apprenticeship then you should be actively searching and applying now. The start date for most vacancies is now the end of June onwards. The main website is:   www.apprenticeships.org.uk

Students can also contact Training Providers direct and Colleges to register for Apprenticeships.

Students who have applied for full time courses at sixth forms / colleges must ensure that they attend enrolment over the summer. They should receive a letter to confirm when this will be. It is usually after GCSE results but may vary. If in doubt they should contact the institution direct.

Students who have applied for full time courses, and still have not heard whether they have a place, should be contacting the institution direct to check on their application.
