Welcome To Kingsbury School

As the new Headteacher of Kingsbury School & Sports College I am delighted to welcome you to our website. The website provides you with useful information about our school and will be updated over the coming months. The school is now being led by the Fairfax Multi-Academy in a school to school agreement in conjunction with Birmingham Local Authority. It is an exciting time for the school as it prepares to become a sponsored academy within the Fairfax group of schools.


At Kingsbury School we are committed to high standards of presentation, behaviour and achievement. A calm purposeful environment is the key to successful learning & achievement.

The school has unlimited potential and it is well supported by parents, local primary schools and the community.

Potential parents are welcome to visit the school at any time where they can meet the Headteacher and visit classrooms to see the school in action.

Please contact the Headteachers’s PA if you would like to organise a visit.

Year 11 English IGCSE Speaking Tests

Parents/carers and students in Year 11, please take note of the date/time and venue of the IGCSE English speaking tests which begin on Monday 14th March.

These tests represent 20% of the overall grade in English language and it is a vital part of the assessment that can make all the difference. The test is marked out of 30 and is reported also as a separate grade on GCSE certificates. This will enable colleges and employers to understand an applicant’s speaking and listening skills.

You can find the schedule below and the mark scheme. There are further examples on the English department’s Google Classroom site which all students can access.

World Book Day – 3/3/16

We have a range of activities taking place today to celebrate World Book Day. At Kingsbury, we value reading: our students read in tutor time, we have allocated periods where Everybody Reads In Class (ERIC Time) and we have an extensive Accelerated Reader programme – with some of our Year 7 students having read over a million words already! We even have a Staff Reading List to continue our teachers’ and leaders’ professional development. In short, everybody reads!


Today, all students have completed a quiz in tutor time with a special prize going to the winner.
