As the Head of Kingsbury School and Sports College, I am delighted to welcome you to our website. I hope it provides you with useful information about our school. I am proud of the many improvements and successes the school has had in recent years and look forward to leading us on to further success in partnership with staff, students, parents/carers and governors. At Kingsbury School we are committed to high standards, student progress and inclusion.
This week Kingsbury played host to a visit from the Brummy artist internationally celebrated for his minute artwork – Willard Wigan.
Willard took time out of his busy schedule to visit the school and talk inspirationally to students about what has driven him towards excellence and influenced his work. Students listened to Willard’s account of growing up in Birmingham and discovering and then developing his talent for creating works smaller and smaller. They heard about the role his mother played in encouraging him to make things smaller and then his reputation would become bigger.
Everyone was amazed by Willard’s artwork and inspirational story.
Thank you Mr Wigan, a Brummy like us who has risen to international acclaim. It shows anything is possible if you foster a talent and work hard.
An exhibition of Willard Wigan’s work is currently taking place in Birmingham Central Library.
During the first weeks of term students have been involved in a number of artistic visits and experiences.
On Friday 16.1.15 a group of students visited the artist’s Willard Wigan’s exhibition – artwork within the eye of an needle. This week the Kingsbury will be hosting a visit from Willard, who is Birmingham based with an international reputation. He will be speaking to students about his work as an artist and the decisions he had to make along the way to get to where he is now.
On Friday 23.1.15 all Year 7 students will be participating in a visit to see the CBSO as part of Kingsbury’s ongoing partnership work with the orchestra.
