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.

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.
Year 7 students have made an excellent start to the year and have settled in well. Over 100 students attended our summer camp during the holidays where they took part in a range of activities with the theme of ‘heroes’. Next week they will be attending Year 7 camp where they will continue to get to know staff and make new friends.
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 :
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 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.
Kingsbury School and Sports College will be using a new Biometric Cashless Catering System, as of the week commencing 15 July 2013.
