College Structure


President Kennedy School College Structure

On entry to the school students belong to The Bridge our Year 7 college. Each year, students move up to a new college. At the end of year 7 they move up to the Gateway, a college which specialises in the needs of our Year 8 students. Each college provides the level of support and guidance and academic rigour required at each and every stage of the student’s development.

The college system supports the academic progress process of students and provides enrichment experiences through supporting charities and taking part in various sporting and intellectual events. Various college events and competitions take place throughout the year and all pupils have the opportunity to represent and support their college. Students have the opportunity to support and help develop their college ethos through the role of Student Ambassadors.
