Open Evening 2021

We would like to extend a warm welcome to our ‘Virtual’ Open Evening webpage.

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 where you will find out what The Bridge offers and become familiar with The 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.

We will update this webpage every week, so please check this page regularly.

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.  

On Thursday 23rd September, you will be able to access a presentation by myself and Mrs Alexander-Weller (Director of the Bridge) and listen to Post 16 students talk about their incredible school journey, and, last year’s Bridge students too. Information on how to access this will be posted on the school Open Evening website page very soon.

We hope that you find our new Open Evening website page informative and enjoyable, and that it helps support an important decision for you as parents/carers. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any further information.

Yours faithfully,

Mr N Clayton - Head Teacher
