Bridge Video introducing The Bridge Team and information on our Summer School
President Kennedy Summer School 2021
We are excited to be able to offer all of our new Year 7 students the chance to come and visit us this summer and take part in some great activities, as well as being able to make some new friends!
It will also give them chance to look around our school, see their new classrooms, meet some of The Bridge staff, whilst having lots of fun in the process.
We are planning a fantastic programme which offers a blend of academic education and enrichment activities to ensure that all students are secondary ready.
We are having two weeks of Summer School this year; one week in July and one week in August. The dates are:
Monday 26th July 2021 - Friday 30th July 2021
Monday 23rd August 2021- Friday 27th August 2021
Each day will start at 10am and will finish at 2:30pm.
If you would like your child to take part, please Click Here for more information and to complete the booking form. All places need to be booked in advance and they are offered on a first come, first served basis. There is no limit to the amount of days that your child can attend. The more the merrier!
The closing date for all applications is Friday 18th June 2021 .
Getting to Know You!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
