With many children competing in local inter-school competitions this year, we are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our competitions possible. As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas of participation, competition, workforce and clubs, and we are pleased that the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded this year.
Thank you to every single member of staff and parents that have made this possible.
We look forward to applying once again in 2020!
Thank you to all the children that participated in a very successful multi ability festival at Kingshill School on Tuesday 17th September. Everyone experienced a carousel of different activities ranging from adapted table tennis, New Age Kurling, Boccia, Tchoukball and even parachute games. A brilliant time was had by all the children with a few very hot faces at the end!
Thank you to Mrs Pauling and the Kingshill School year 8s for helping run, organise and make up the numbers in the event.
