Young Enterprise Team Impress

Congratulations to Team SIMMER, our Young Enterprise team who went to trade their specially designed product at  Spitalfields Market on 12th February as part of the Young Enterprise Challenge.

The team ensured that their trade stand was visually attractive with the product well presented.  Alisa Jastrub brought an outfit especially for the occasion, reflecting the Chinese theme of the product, and acted as our company mascot.  They were seen by a number of judges as well as the general public and they were well-mannered, articulate and informative, impressing all who came into contact with them.  Alisa was interviewed on her own by a journalist who took an interest in the product and was attentive, thoughtful and clear in her responses.

This all resulted in the team being given a Special Recognition award!  This is something of an outstanding achievement considering that a team from Kingsmead has never received an award at the end of the Spitalfields event and that there were only 4 main awards to be given (we were one of only two teams to gain this recognition outside of the top 4 teams) and also that over 25 teams competed.  Well done to team members Alisa Jastrub, Abidur Rahman, Holly Allwright, Rebecca Gilchrist and Naran Oyuntsetseg.

Inspirational Visit by London Marathon Hero

On 11th March, Claire Lomas gave an inspirational talk to Year 13 Media students and Year 10 students.  Claire is a wheelchair user who was left paralysed from the chest down after a freak horse-riding accident.  Her zest for life and determination never to give up were illustrated by her use of a special bodysuit that restored her ability to walk and allowed her complete the London Marathon last year, despite it taking her 17 gruelling days!  Claire is soon to begin her next venture - cycling around Britain raising money for spinal research.  The students were left with a clear message from Claire to follow their dreams and never give up.  Year 10 students were so inspired by Claire's visit that they intend to raise funds for spinal research and the Nicholls Foundation.

Instrumental & Vocal Lessons at Kingsmead

Each week, over 120 instrumental and vocal lessons taught by staff from Enfield Arts Support Service (EASS) take place at Kingsmead within the Music Department.  We have a brilliant team of 15 visiting teachers from EASS who work with our students in this capacity, at all key stages.

There are all kinds of skills and positive experiences students can gain from this tuition, not least the possibility of taking external, additional music exams and furthering student involvement in the extended curriculum.  Learning Director of Music, Mr Elia can offer students (and parents) all sorts of information on the benefits of learning an instrument or taking voice lessons.

Most lessons are not free; there are differing charges for lessons depending on the length of the lesson and whether they take place in a group or individually.  Some of the lessons are funded by the school, some by parents and some by a recently obtained grant from EASS.

For further information please contact Mr Elia.

Calling ex-students

Kingsmead School is working with Future First to build a network of former Kingsmead students (or ‘alumni’) around the school to inform, advise and inspire current Kingsmead students as they make important decisions about their futures.

Kingsmead alumni will be interviewed to build a profile on a private website that Future First is building for the school, where students can research the different career paths that people from their very school have gone on to take. The alumni can also take part in school events, big and small, where they can meet current students in person and share their experiences since they left Kingsmead School.

Future First is looking to recruit alumni from a wide range of careers so that there are role models for every student and to showcase the incredible range of amazing careers that Kingsmead students pursue. We already have lots of alumni on board – from psychiatrists to policemen and even a budding journalist: Kingsmead students really do go on to do it all. We’re excited to hear from even more Kingsmead alumni who have gone on to do really interesting things: dancers or doctors, builders or barristers – we want the lot!

To sign up, go to http://networks.futurefirst.org.uk/signup/kingsmead
