Open Evening Information
Our new dedicated Open Evening website page will be our way of sharing as much information as possible with you and your child.
This webpage gives us the opportunity for you and your child to familiarise yourself with President Kennedy School in a virtual context. We hope that this will also give you some clarity about what to expect when your child starts secondary school.
This webpage and Prospectus (below) will also inform you of the range of outstanding learning and enrichment opportunities and highlights the outstanding ethos and expectations here at President Kennedy School.
We hope you will find this informative. Please do not hesitate to contact us at school with any queries.
We will be updating information over the next few weeks, so please do revisit this page.
We would like to extend a warm welcome to our ‘Virtual’ Open Evening. Unfortunately, due to Government guidance on large gatherings, we are unable to host our usual Open Evening event at school and meet you all personally. However, I am sure you will find our new website page informative and reassuring for you as parents as you start to make decisions on your child’s education and school career.
Here at President Kennedy School we understand this is such an important decision for you as parents and that is why we have invested so heavily in ‘The Bridge’, our dedicated Year 7 school. The Bridge has been welcoming students for the last 10 years and during this time it has been widely praised by parents, the educational press, OFSTED and education specialists for setting the national standard for transition between primary school and secondary school. We regularly host visitors from schools all over the country. The Bridge’s team of specialist staff have developed a reputation for providing the very best educational environment for each and every one of our students. The Bridge provides a safe, nurturing and personalised educational experience which ensures that academic progress is at the heart of its provision.
Please take the time to explore our Open Evening website page (add link), where you will find out what The Bridge offers and become familiar with Bridge staff. More importantly, you will hear what students themselves say about their transition experience and how The Bridge has helped them to grow and develop into exceptional and confident young people.
Open Evening Website Page
On our new designated Open Evening website page, you will have the opportunity to listen to my welcome message to this year’s new and prospective Year 7 parents, where I outline our approach for providing the very best education for your child; you will also be introduced to a variety of staff from across the school.
You will experience a virtual tour of our state-of-the-art school building which was made by Year 7 students as part of a STEM project and read about our successful and outstanding exam performance at both A Level and GCSE. Finally, you will meet a number students from the Bridge and see for yourself why President Kennedy School is the school of first choice in our community.
Open Evening Experience
We are more than aware why attending an Open Evening is so important, not only for you as parents but for the students themselves. It provides you with an opportunity to have a ‘feel’ for our school, where you can feel the honesty, passion and warmth that radiates naturally from our students and staff. We will try our best to provide you with this experience.
From Monday 28th September you will have access to your Open Evening Experience where you be able to watch a compilation video of the range of world class experiences President Kennedy School has to offer.
