A comprehensive list is available to download below on this page.
Duke of Edinburgh
We have had a high success rate with our Duke of Edinburgh scheme in the school. As a centre we hold a 100% pass rate at bronze level and have been recognised by the County for this. This year in year 9 we have been able to offer 25 students a chance to enrol on the scheme after receiving 75 applications. At silver level we have a group of 21 students enrolled for this year’s scheme. Last year, 9 students at gold level completed their award, the highest number in the County.
Creative and Performing Arts
Students have been making the most of opportunities to develop their creativity and entertain us. A large number of students across all year groups were involved with both the dance show in February 2019 and the School Will Rock You performance in December 2018.
The school runs a successful KJ Art Academy. Students benefit from a ‘rich’ offer including the LAMDA qualifications and the expertise of professional instructors in the creative and performing arts faculty.
Trips and Visits
Students have been making the most of opportunities for trips and visits. In 2017/18 we offered 68 different trips and visits with 3908 places on these trips. In 2018*19 so far we have offered 24 different trips with 980 places available.
