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.
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.
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!

We believe that this will enable us to provide a more secure and efficient service to our students.
