Year 11 Careers Reminders

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.

Congratulations

June 3, 2014 in Front Page News by Miss L Millward

Well Done to Ryan Phipps and Kirsty Minchin who have gained Bronze medals from the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music. Year 7 student Ryan passed (with excellence) the Level 1 Award in Music Performance with the Flute, and Year 9′s Kirsty passed the same award with the Clarinet.
The students will be part of a group from Kingsbury performing at the Library of Birmingham tomorrow (4th June) and we are looking forward to hearing them again at our school concert in July.
The students have worked very hard and should be very proud of their achievements. Pictured: Ryan and Kirsty with Miss Millward and music teacher Miss Woodcock.
If any other students are interested in learning a musical instrument, they should contact Miss Millward.
