Children in Need

Children-in-needballoonsThis year we will be supporting this annual national event by running a non-uniform day on Friday 17 November 2017.

‘Children in Need’ raises money across the country to assist young people who, for various reasons, are in need of support.

We are suggesting a £1 donation per student in return for wearing non-uniform for the day.  Please remind your child to wear something appropriate for both school and the weather.

Thank you.

Christmas Concert at the Colston Hall

DSC_0351Our annual Christmas Concert at the Colston Hall is on Thursday 7th December.  As the Colston Hall is closing for two years from May 2018 for re-modernisation, this concert will be our last for a number of years.  Mr Warren would like to make this concert even bigger and better than in previous years.

Can you remember performing or watching a previous concert? … think about the Camel Boogie Woogie!!  All your memories will come flashing back.

We are calling for Kingsfield or KOA ex-students, friends and parents to join us. Ideally this would be by participating on stage, but assistance and support in any guise is sought.

Please contact Mr Warren by email:  warrent@kingsoakacademy.org.uk or by phoning KOA on 01179 927127.  It would be very helpful if you would pass on this invitation to anybody you know who would possibly be interested.  Thank you.

King’s Oak Academy’s best ever GCSE results

The class of 2017 have produced King’s Oak Academy’s best ever GCSE results. 57% of students achieved a grade 4 and above in both English and maths and 35% of students achieved a grade 5 and above in both English and Maths. Whilst the 5A*-C including English and maths measure is no longer official currency, 57% of King’s Oak students achieved at least 5 GCSEs including English and mathematics.

In a year when the bar has been raised for GCSEs, these results are very strong. Most importantly, they are a testament to the hard work of the students and staff over the last five years. I am very proud to be Principal of this Academy and able to congratulate the students formally. Nonetheless, I know how hard everyone has worked to achieve these results and thanks must go to all of the staff at King’s Oak who have inspired our students to their success.

Today our focus is rightly on the young people collecting their results and it is right and proper that we single out one or two individuals for their performances in their GCSEs.

The following students gained at least 3 As in their GCSEs:

Marcus Abraham (4), Katie Baird (4 with 1 A*), Hugh Barret (7 with 5A*s), Jean Claude Cisse (3), Zoe Goodman (6 with 1 A*), Lauren Hall (4), Jess Hill (3), Jess James (5 with 2 A*s), Stephanie Larkin (4A*s), Callum Lovell (5 with 2A*s), Jade Rea (3), Hannah Thompson (3), Ryan Whittaker (8 with 6A*s).

English and Maths are now graded on a scale of 1 to 9 with 9 being the new top grade. It is above an A* under the previous measure and is reserved for those students who are really at the top of their game in their subject. Four King’s Oak students achieved a grade 9 in either English or Maths. They are:

Jade Smith and Ryan Whittaker in English

Hugh Barrett and Samantha Lacey in Maths

Congratulations to King’s Oak’s class of 2017 and the staff who helped them achieve such an excellent set of results.

Richard Clutterbuck

Principal
