Reporting home and Year 6 admissionsOctober 11, 2020 7:40 am
It hardly seems possible that we are getting towards the end of the first half-term. I suspect that the return to school will have been tiring for students and staff, after a different pattern of working and as we have all coped with a changes to school procedures.
Over the course of the next couple of weeks we will be sharing our first reports of the year with different year groups. Last week Year 7 and 11 parents and carers received their update on how their son or daughter has been progressing since our return. In the week ahead Year 9, 12 and 13 will also receive a report.
For those of you who follow us on Twitter you will have noticed that we have started to share more of our day-to-day activity on there, allowing parents, carers and the wider community to see activities that have made us smile and feel proud. If don’t follow us already, add us to your list @kesgravehigh
This week we will share our virtual alternatives to Open Evening with our Year 6 parents and carers.

In this video I set out what we believe defines our approach to education at Kesgrave High School. I share our philosophy and ambition for our young people.

What does life at Kesgrave High School look like on an ordinary, rather grey October day? Please excuse the traffic noise while a speak at the start, I confess I considered editing this out, but given that the intention of this video is to show daily life at school, I decided the double decker passing on the road was part of that! I hope that you will enjoy the eclectic mix of background music but could not miss an opportunity to share the range of music created by our students.
What Year 7 say
Later on this week I will share a discussion between Miss Boon, Head of Year 7, September 2020 and some Year 7 students. In this, students will reflect on their first month at High School and what they already feel about the school.
Our Year 12 introductory video https://vimeo.com/462314214 will be followed up soon with further, more detailed, subject information.
