Wednesday 9th January 5.00pm – 8.00pm Year 11 Parents’ Evening

Dear Parents/Guardians

Please find below the details for the forthcoming Year 11 Parents’ Evening. The evening will be held on Wednesday 9th January.

This Parents’ Evening will give you the opportunity to discuss your child’s progress with individual members of staff. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer appointments at this evening for parents to see teachers of PSHEE.  This is due to the fact that most teachers of PSHEE will also have responsibility for classes in another subject area.  Any queries regarding PSHEE should be directed to your child’s teacher either via a telephone call or, if necessary, in writing.

You will be able to book via our online Parents’ Evening booking system using the link below from Thursday 20th December at 7pm. The booking system will close on Tuesday 8th January at 12noon. Appointments will start at 5:00pm running to 8:00pm with each appointment slot lasting 5 minutes. You will be able to book your appointment with the relevant teachers via our online booking facility which you can access via the following link:  https://kingswinchester.parentseveningsystem.co.uk/

You will need your child’s date of birth to access the site along with your email address to receive confirmation of your appointment.

Please try to access the system prior to bookings being opened if possible to identify any login issues. All being well you will receive a message telling you the evening is locked.  Once the bookings have opened and you have logged in, you will be presented with your child’s teachers to make appointments.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all parents/guardians for their continued support.

Yours faithfully,

Mr A Chainey

Head of Year 11

 

Danemark ready for teaching

We are delighted that our new classrooms, named Danemark after our predecessor school, will be ready for teaching at the start of the new term.  This building has four very modern classrooms that will be used to teach Business, Enterprise and Employability.  Each classroom is named after people famous in the fields of computing, science and enterprise.  On the top floor we have Vaughan named after Dorothy Vaughan, a mathematician and human computer who worked for the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, and NASA and significant contributor to the space programme and Baylis, named after Trevor Baylis an entrepreneur whose inventions included the wind up radio.  On the ground floor we have Hawking, no explanation necessary and Roddick of Body Shop fame.

Our classrooms are all equipped with the latest in technology.  Each desk has a computer and the teacher will teach the class using smart screen technology at the front.  The building is designed to have a very low environmental footprint.  Each space is air conditioned and the building is supplied with electricity from the solar panels on the roof.  Danemark is equipped with a  lift for wheelchairs and is fully accessible throughout.

A short video of the whole of the build can be seen here…

 

Headteachers Newsletter

December 2018

Dear Parents/Guardians

Happy Christmas! I hope you and your whole family are about to enjoy wonderful holidays. It has been a long and busy term but, I hope, a highly successful one.

Show Your Appreciation Scheme

I hope you will have received the letter from Colin Williams, our Chair of Governors. In recognition of the fantastic hard work that the staff team at Kings’ puts in, governors suggested that parents might want to donate gifts. His letter said:

“The idea is that parents could donate a gift and there would be a regular “Prize Draw”, with every single member of the staff team included.

We think it would be inappropriate to have cash prizes, but that almost anything else might be included – it could be something very general, like a bottle of wine or a box of chocolates, or it could be something more specialist, such as a meal for two at a restaurant, or a ticket to the opera! We hope that parents might be both generous and imaginative, so that each prize would be memorable.

Parents would not be allowed to nominate a recipient – Kings’ staff work as a team, in the spirit of “Una Laborantes”! This would mean that anyone, from the Site Manager to the Head of Science and from the Dining Room Assistants to the Deputy Headteacher, might win anything.”

I am delighted to say that we have now held out first draw – here are some of the lucky winners:

 

Winners, so far:

Sparx Beauty Gift Voucher – won by Mr Holdsworth, who works in our small Finance Team Reiki Treatment Voucher – won by Mrs Ripley, who is one of our Dining Room Assistants Amazon Gift Card – won by Mrs Chandler, Head of PSHEE and Geography Teacher Merci Chocolates – Mr Humphries – won by Mrs Challis, our Pupil Support Administrator Mulled Wine – won by Ms Dean, who is one of our Learning Support Assistants Poinsettia – won by Mrs Russell, English Teacher Christmas Wreath – won by Mr Wooldridge, our Catering Manager Beanbag – won by Mrs Lee, Head of German Hamper – won by Mrs Bright, who is a member of the Site Team Hamper – won by Mrs Martin, who is our School Business Co-ordinator Prosecco Gift Pack – won by Mrs Dawe, Art Teacher

As you can see, we have been given a splendidly varied selection of gifts; our winners are a representative cross-section of our brilliant staff team. They were all thrilled that their hard work has been recognised.

If you would like to say thank you in this way, do please consider sending a gift into Reception.

Staff changes

We are very sad to be saying goodbye to several friends and colleagues this term. Jane Marsh joined Montgomery of Alamein School, Kings’ predecessor in September 1984. She has served Kings’ School since it opened as a Science Teacher, as Head of Science and, since 2007, as Deputy Headteacher. She is one of a very small number of people who have made the school what it is and we will miss her wisdom, her judgement and her enormous experience more than I can say. I know that any parent who has had contact with her will join me and her colleagues in wishing her all the very best for her retirement.

Sadly, a number of other colleagues are also leaving us. From RS, we are to say a fond farewell to Mrs Harvey; from the SEND team, to Mrs McGuinness and from Science, to Mrs Harman. I would like to thank all of them for the service they have given to Kings’.

If your daughter/ son has been taught by any of these colleagues this term, they should have been told who is taking over in January.

Working in the holidays

This is quite a short holiday (we come back on Monday 7 January). I do not think there is any reason for any pupil in Year 7, 8 or 10 to do any school work at all; it is possible that some Year 11 pupils may have assignments to complete but they, too, should aim to take a complete break. Pupils in Year 9 have exams starting on Tuesday 8 January – we advised them to aim for a total of 15-20 hours of revision from Monday 10 December through to the end of the exam week and asked teachers not to set any other homework during this time. As such, there really should be no need even for Year 9 pupils to do very much studying before we come back.

We do have some useful resources on the website to support pupils’ revision:

Danemark Block

We were delighted to take possession of the shiny new Danemark Block earlier this month. Pupils will be in there from January 2019; we will hold a proper opening ceremony a bit later in the year; in the meantime, here is Site Manager Steve receiving the keys! 

It has been great to work with Hampshire Architects and with the team at Brymor on this project. We are on budget and (very, very nearly) on schedule and the new classrooms look fabulous.

Locker Amnesty

The school currently has 1390 lockers for all our 1687 pupils – not quite enough to go round and we do have a waiting list. We are sure that many lockers have been paid for by parents and yet have never been used. We would be grateful if any pupils who do not use their lockers let their parents know. If these parents could then inform us by email kings.school@kings-winchester.hants.sch.uk we will arrange a prorata refund of the locker fee once the key has been returned. A locker currently costs £17 for all five years and we would be happy to refund any non-users £3.50 for every full year left of their locker rental.

Kings’ Scribe

Intrepid Year 10 reporters have been dabbling in (almost) professional journalism in the school’s newest initiative to expose pupils to potential careers: The Kings’ Scribe, a magazine written by students, for students. With the kind support and sponsorship of The University of Winchester, our novice correspondents have penned, produced and promoted their magazine, from which they have donated all profits to Winchester Churches’ Night Shelter. Issues covered range from school news to political debates, international sporting events to humorous satire. For instance, Isaac Ling has amalgamated both of the latter, with his ‘Dummies Guide to Wimbledon’ and the like. By taking part in the process, pupils have worked hard, met deadlines like real writers and uncovered interesting, little known stories about the local area (a highlight is always Ren Foley’s ‘Blind Spot’ column, discussing topics such as Winchester Prison reforms and homelessness in the city). The pupils have shown the utmost self-discipline and maturity in their work; their writing is always outstanding – well beyond the expected standard of their fourteen years – and they have collaborated well to proof read and edit each other’s work. If you would like a copy, or just to find out more about how your child could become involved, please contact Miss Gifford in the English Department.

School meals

I am sorry to report that some school food will be slightly more expensive as from January. The flagship “Meal Deal” will be £2.30 – many other prices are unchanged – you can find a complete list on the Kings’ Catering section of our website at this link here

The spring term catering newsletter can be found by clicking here.

Transport matters

1. We have been contacted by a parent who lives in Eastleigh (postcode SO50) who is interested in investigating a shared approach to the journey to school. He mentions private minibuses or car sharing and asked me to find out whether there are any other parents who might like to be involved. If you would like me to put you in touch with him, please email me at school.

2. Late Bus users may have heard that we are now using a different coach company. Sadly, the new company is charging us rather more; as a result, we will have to increase the daily fare from £3 to £5 from September. I realise this is expensive, especially considering the short distances involved; however, even at £5 the school will not be covering its costs.

3. Reminder to motorists – PLEASE don’t park on Sarum View or turn round in the Winchester Golf Club car park.

Contacting you in an emergency

It is good for us to have more than one contact number in case we need to phone you in an emergency; ideally, we like to have three. You can check and update the records we hold using the “School Gateway” app; instructions for registering are below.

Using the School Gateway

1. Go to https://schoolgateway.co.uk/get-started/

2. Register using your same email address and mobile number held by the school

3. School Gateway will send you a text with a 4digit PIN

4. Login – you are ready to go.

5. The School Gateway app can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play – full instructions are at the link above.

Parenting Support

Some of you will have heard our colleague Lorraine Lee talk on the challenges of parenting – I hope you will agree that she offers excellent advice in an engaging way. Lorraine is offering a series workshops at the Middle Brook Centre – please see her leaflet, here.

If you would like to go, but the price is a problem, do please contact your child’s Head of Year in confidence – we might well be able to help.

Important dates:

Friday 21 December Pupils finish school at 12.25pm Monday 7 January School term starts W/c Monday 7 January Year 9 exams start Wednesday 9 January Year 11 Parent’s Evening Friday 25 January Inset Day Thursday 31 January Year 7 Pastoral Evening Wednesday 6 February Year 9 Options Evening Monday 18 February Half term Friday 5 April Inset Day

We will look forward to welcoming everyone back to school at 8.45am on Monday 7 January 2019 – have a super Christmas!

Yours faithfully

7th January 2019 Year 9 Exams

Dear Parents/Guardians,

As we all approach the excitement of the Christmas holidays, I am writing to communicate the details of the Year 9 Examinations which pupils will be starting week beginning Monday 7th January 2019. I hope to clarify the arrangements for the examinations and help to alleviate any pupil anxiety, ensure timely preparation and promote a relaxing and enjoyable holiday for all.

The majority of the examinations will be undertaken in the pupils’ regular teaching groups, during normal timetabled lessons in the usual classroom setting; they will start from Tuesday 8th January. English and Science examinations will, however, be undertaken in the Sports Hall to help prepare pupils for future examination experiences; these exams will take place on Wednesday 9th January. Any examinations missed will be taken during the timetabled lessons over the following week.

In preparation for the examinations, teaching staff will be providing revision guidance during lessons and homework and giving information about the topics that pupils will be required to revise. Mr Leeming has spoken to all pupils during Year 9 Assembly and has given advice and guidance on sensible revision expectations over the Christmas break. We have advised the following:

 2-3 hours for core subjects; 1 hour for each non-core subject; equating to 15-20 hours over the Christmas break.

I do hope you find this information helpful. Please let me take this opportunity to wish you and your family a very happy Christmas and New Year.

Yours faithfully,

Miss S Clarkson & Mr E Owusu

Oliver Twist Production Review

 

Lional Bart’s adaptation of Charles Dicken’s Oliver Twist stomped onto the stage at Kings’ School recently, full of energy, fun and cheer! With over 100 actors, singers, dancers and musicians, our hugely talented cast, aged between 11 – 15, have shown incredible commitment and dedication over the last 20 weeks, recreating well-known musical numbers and engaging characters for a sell-out audience.

Abbey Warren recreated the strong and spirited Nancy, naturally portraying the warm-hearted London girl whose kindness is stopped short by the sinister and brutish Bill Sykes, played by Freddie Scott. Jacob Love created a manipulative, sly Fagin with a cunning heart and thirst for all that sparkles, which compliments the cheeky and energetic misdemeanours of Zeth Franco in the role of the Artful Dodger. The title role is a very physical one for any child, as Oliver is kidnapped, threatened, locked in a coffin and so on. Alfie Stokes gave a touching and engaging performance in the lead role as we saw him take on Vincent Brown’s interpretation of the formidable Mr Bumble in well-known numbers including Food Glorious Food as well as Consider Yourself, Oom Pah Pah and many more. The entire cast worked with professionalism, dedication and enthusiasm.

Poverty crime and grime were at the heart of this production, with a stunning set by M3 Productions, over 200 costume changes, created by costume designer Jenni Sundheim and a live band performed by our very own pupils. As the audience were swept along on a journey through the streets of Victorian London, there was an ominous sense of the battle between good and bad in an action-packed, thrilling show with just the right amount of audience interaction to engage and entertain.

The Drama and Music departments were delighted to have had the opportunity to host such a fantastic production! Our pupils applied themselves with maturity rising to every challenge they have been set. It has been a wonderful experience, working alongside a huge number of incredibly supportive pupils, staff & parents to host this spectacle. Our pupils are a real credit to themselves and Kings’ School.

2018 GCSE results

We are really delighted with the grades our pupils have achieved. For many subjects this was the first year of the new exam courses, but results in Science, History, Geography and Languages appear to be very good – we think that 47% of pupils achieved the full “EBacc”, which would be a new record for us. Results among the high attainers appear to be very strong generally, with 41% of the new numerical grades being 7, 8 or 9 (equivalent to A or A*) and 37% of pupils achieving at least 5 Grade 7s/As. Overall, 81% of pupils achieved what are now called “The Basics” (standard passes in English and Maths).

It is early days and the calculations are complicated, but our progress figure is looking higher than it did at this point last year.

We had lots of outstanding individual performances, including two pupils who achieved Grade 9s in every subject they took. I would like to congratulate them and all the other pupils and staff whose hard work has led to these great results.

This team have grafted very hard since September and to a man gave it 110% in a hard fought and physical final. Their performance was typical of their dogged and physical style and they are very deserved winners of this title. The school is proud of these boys, but moreover they should be very proud of themselves.

New Items of Kings’ Uniform September 2018

Dear Parent/Guardian

We are excited to be able to announce that we have additional uniform items available on our Uniform Shop website.  Please read the following regarding these items:

  • Games Jersey’s – Our existing supplier has now stopped manufacturing the games jerseys that we have had had in stock for many years. This has meant that we have had to source an alternative and the new ones can now be found on our website and in our shop.  We hope you agree that the bespoke and lightweight material makes it a great design.  Initially, these will be sold to all of our new year 7 starters in September 2018. We expect that this will then gradually follow across the rest of the school, as the olds one naturally need replacing for the next size up.

 

  • Netball Skort’s – Kings’ School has now introduced skorts to replace the old style games skirt. This follows suggestion from the pupils and the school is sure that this will be a really smart alternative.  Initially, these will be sold to the new year 7 starters for September 2018 as a compulsory item.  However, they will also be available to buy for all of the other girls when they are wanting to replace their netball skirts.  There is, however, no pressure to do this immediately.

 

  • Trousers – Kings’ are pleased to announce that we are now giving girls’ the option to wear trousers as an alternative to the grey skirt. Girls’ can choose to pick either or both the skirt and trousers.  Only one style of trousers will be considered acceptable uniform and so buying skirts or trousers from the Uniform Shop will be compulsory.

 

To make sure we achieve a uniform standard we will also be making it compulsory to buy boys’ trousers from our uniform shop too.  For new starters in September this will be with immediate effect.  We expect that all other year groups will follow the move to uniform trousers within the school year.

We are unable to hold stock covering the very wide variation of waist sizes and lengths in the uniform shop.  In order to purchase trousers you should place an order with the uniform shop either online or at the shop.  We will then order from the suppliers on the 25th of each month (except December when the order will be placed on Monday 17th).  This may mean that if you place an order just after the deadline then you may need to wait for up to a month before the next order is submitted.    We will do our best to ensure they are available as soon as possible.  These will then need to be collected from the shop during it’s normal opening hours (notes will be sent out to pupil’s classes reminding them, when they are ready).  In the event of an urgent need for trousers then please contact the Uniform Shop since small, priority orders attract extra delivery charges.

Online Uniform Shop

If you have any further questions, then please phone Kings’ on 01962 861 161 and ask for Miss Merrett, I will be more than happy to assist.

 

 

Kind regards

 

Kim Merrett

Kings’ Uniform Shop Administrator
