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.
An extensive programme of revision classes are running throughout the holiday for Year 11 students. All students have been provided with information and a copy has been posted home to parents/carers.
Students – Make sure you attend all the classes required on time and follow a well planned revision timetable at home. Make use of all the advice and guidance that is available and refer to the weekly Study Guru for further tips and hints (see link below on the website).
Parents/Carers – Please discuss the schedule with your child and make sure they attend. Students should also have a revision timetable they are following at home. The two weeks’ holiday is a crucial time for students to ensure they revisit prior learning and prepare for the forthcoming exams. All Year 11 students have recently received their marks from their latest mock exams, so they have a clear idea of what they need to do to improve their final grades.
The final exams are not far away. Students will be supported in lessons throughout the exam period in school. There is no Study Leave during the exam period. Students must attend school until the end of Year 11.
Thursday 1st May we will be running a Study Support Evening for Year 11 Students (6pm) and Year 10 Students (6.30pm) and their parents/carers.
School restarts for all students on Monday 28.4.14 at 8.40 am
There will be a Staff Training Day on Tuesday 6th May 2014. School will be closed to all students except for selected Year 11 students.
As students approach their exams it is important that they use their time effectively so that they are fully prepared and can approach the examinations with confidence. The Study Guru is a set of weekly tips that will support students in this preparation. To access these tips visit the student or parent tabs on the website and hover over study support.

Once again we are collecting vouchers to buy sports and activity equipment and healthy eating resources. These vouchers really do make a difference and we would be grateful if you would send any vouchers to school. Thank You. Miss Stevens
Birmingham City Council is currently consulting on the future of the Outdoor Learning Service. This a service that many schools like Kingsbury access to support students’ learning beyond the classroom and school site. The link below provides more information about the Service and the opportunity for parents/carers and young people in the city to have their say to inform future decision making. I would encourage our students and parents/carers to participate in the consultation.
Over the past weeks, as a school we have been working with students to raise awareness of the potential risks in the use of the internet and social media. Please find link to recent Internet Safety 22.11.13 - letter to Parents / Carers.
Last night students, parents/carers and staff enjoyed a great evening of entertainment. A carnival of singing, dancing, poetry, fashion and music celebrated our history, our achievements and our diversity as a community.
Many nations – one school = Kingsbury!
In this year’s GCSE results, we have a number of real success stories with several students achieving the highest grades possible and exceeding their expectations. Against a national backdrop of turbulence in the exam system, we continue to work hard to add value for our students. Among the notable success stories, our top achiever was Raha Shazad with Eight A*, Three A’s , One Distinction* and a Merit, with Joel Phipps picking up an A* and 5 A’s.
Kingsbury School and Sports College will be using a new Biometric Cashless Catering System, as of the week commencing 15 July 2013.
We believe that this will enable us to provide a more secure and efficient service to our students.
