    Getting to Know You!

    Dear Parent/Carer

    We hope that you and your families are all keeping well and staying safe.

    As part of our ongoing Transition programme, we would like your child to complete a special form called Transition – Year 6 Journey to The Bridge ‘Getting to Know You’ form.

     We would love to know a little bit about what your child likes to do and what they are most looking forward to, as well as what they are a little bit unsure or worried about, before we get the chance to meet them in person. You can access this form via the Year 6 – Journey to The Bridge website page, or Click Here to take you straight there.

    Every student that completes the form will receive a President Kennedy pump bag full of goodies for their first day in The Bridge!

    We shall look forward to seeing all of the comments and will use any concerns or worries raised in an FAQs online assembly very soon.

    Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any urgent questions for the Year 7 team, either by calling us on (02476) 661416 or by emailing transition@pks.coventry.sch.uk.

    Kind regards,

    The Bridge Team.


    Welcome Year 6 students and Year 6 parents.  

    I am The Director of The Bridge, Mrs Alexander-Weller, who oversees everything in Year 7. I have been at President Kennedy School for thirteen years and this is my fifth year as a College Director.

    This first year spent in The Bridge is such an important time for Year 7 students, as they embark on their career with us at President Kennedy school. We recognise this is a huge milestone for Year 7s and their parents therefore, we work closely with you to ensure every Year 7 student is settled and happy as they thrive in their learning. I achieve this with our fantastic team in The Bridge. Please read about The Bridge Team so that you are familiar with the staff that will be working with you and your children as we support them in their first year at secondary school.

    Please explore the website further and view our 3D school. This will allow your children to familiarise themselves with the building virtually and become comfortable with the new surroundings before they arrive.  

    We will continue to update the latest transition information here.

    We look forward to a time when we can invite you in, but until we get the opportunity to meet in person, please continue to explore our website for the latest Transition information or contact: 

    Transition@pks.coventry.sch.uk if you have any queries regarding your child starting with us in September 2021.

  • President Kennedy School Students are ‘A Tour de Force’ at the World Class Schools Quality Mark Awards

    Published 22/03/21

     

    'As a World Class School, our students had the opportunity to participate in the WCS Essay Writing Competition 2020. Tasked with responding to the following essay title 'What would the ideal education system look like?', students had to write an academic essay of 2500 words which addressed the topic in a creative and thought-provoking way. 

    Out of more than 100 World Class accredited schools, President Kennedy School came out on top in the virtual awards ceremony on Thursday 18th March. 

    Caitlin Hoyle in Year 10 was awarded the overall prize for her creative thought and the sheer amount of research that was evident within her essay.

    Gracie Rolinson in Year 9 also achieved third place due to the depth of her analysis and the inventive changes she proposed in regard to the education system. Both fantastic achievements!

    Since January this year, our teachers have also had the opportunity to nominate students for Student of the Month, a campaign only available to World Class schools. The following students were put forward by their teachers and received honourable mentions during the ceremony due to their intellectual curiosity, academic progress and drive to succeed: Abshara Piratheeban (Year 7), Zishan Farooq (Year 8) and Gracie Rolinson (Year 9).

    Finally, congratulations also to Mya Birdee, Harry Gilsenan and Eesha Gupta in Year 12 who were also highlighted in the awards ceremony for their work qualifying as Shadow Assessors. This means they will now be involved in assessing new schools attempting to gain WCSQM accreditation.

    A huge well done to all of these incredible students - congratulations!!
