  • STEM Roadshow Comes to President Kennedy School

    Published 31/03/22

    The 2022 schools STEM roadshow was a 50 minute interactive presentation that explored the subject of magnetism. Aligned to the school curriculum, by using examples from our three education partner organisations, BAE Systems, Royal Air Force and  Royal Navy and surprising applications in everyday objects, students were fascinated by just how commonplace magnets and electromagnets are. 

        

    There were magic magnetic moments, where we demonstrated magic tricks that all use magnets. There was a test of strength and one of the presenters was suspended in the air to demonstrate how strong electromagnets can be. Packed with fun and factual references, students and teachers learned something new about the wonderful World of Magnets.

        

    The purpose of the event was to give our students the opportunity to see a STEM topic in a totally different light. Students were be able to make a connection between some familiar objects, what they have learnt about these in the classroom and how they relate to the world of work. They learnt that STEM careers can be accessed by all genders and that a passion for Maths and Science will help them hugely.

  • The Rotary Club Competition

    Published 22/03/22

    Year 7: Charlie, Serena and Gursharan spent their Friday night (Friday 4th March) representing The Bridge in a Youth Speaks Debating Competition at Bablake School hosted by The Rotary Club. 

    They had great determination and curiosity in researching the motion that the Covid-19 Vaccination should be mandatory for all children. They had to present an argument for the motion and one against the motion. They then had to answer a question on the spot which was asked by a member of The Rotary Club. 

    They did fabulously well in articulating their views and had lots of positive feedback from the judges and the audience. 

    Well done all!

    Mrs Arnett, Student Leadership and Character, The Bridge

  • Physics Olympiad

    Published 31/01/22

    2022 has started with celebrations here at President Kennedy School with our Year 13 Physicists achieving success in one of the most challenging Physics competitions in the world - 
    The British Physics Olympiad (Pho). 

    The BPhO shows a profound depth of development and skill in physics along with a determination to solve difficult physics problems. This paper is a challenge and is not an A level replica. 

    It is a very tall ladder of skill, ability and preparedness, which students climb until they grind to a halt.

    Out of 2,300 students from 393 schools and only 170 students achieving Top Gold, we are extremely proud to announce the following results from Round 1:

    Kush Patel – Top Gold
    Joseph Brew – Bronze II
    Joshua Palad - Bronze II
    Zak Adams - Bronze II
    Robert Sterea - Commendation
    Mya Birdee - Commendation 

    Well done to all that took part.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Mr Green, Science KS5 Lead

  • Smart Learners Give Back to Local Community

    Published 12/01/22

    Here at Smart Learner driving school, we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint, hence our Going Green Project! Throughout 2021/2022, we plan to take steps towards becoming a sustainable and eco-friendly company.

    Smart Learner Driving School has estimated that we release approximately 10 tons of CO2e into the atmosphere, per instructor.

    We currently have 50 instructors, as a result, we emit around 500 tons of CO2e into our atmosphere! In order to combat this and offset our carbon emissions, SmartLearner will plant 10 trees per instructor. This is as a tree absorbs 1 tonne of CO2e per lifetime. 
    We are a business that strives for a cleaner, greener, and better future. 

         

    List of people in attendance along with Deputy Head of President Kennedy School, Mrs Rooke were:

    Tommy Sandhu, Darryn Majury, Rafiel Aguila and Nuneaton Lions Club members
