School dates update from Ms Kirby-Klappholz

I am writing to you with some important news about several dates this term and, very importantly,  the start of the Autumn term. Please note the following:

Reminders for this term:
  • - Sports Day takes place on Friday 7th July at Osterley Sports Ground - students go straight there for 8.30. Some students will remain in school to help with our Year 5 A Life in the Day of Kingsley Academy activity
  • - Progress Review Day Tuesday 11th July 
  • - The Year 9 Graduation Ceremony will take place on Wednesday 12 July at 1.30pm
  • - The International Evening takes place on Thursday 13 July (time to be advised)
  • - The final staff training day (we are entitled to a number of these each year) will take place on Tuesday 18 July periods 1 and 2. This means that students should attend school at 10.30 in order to start school on that day at period 3.
The school will close for the summer holidays at 11.30 on Thursday 20 July (see below). Those children wanting a meal or in receipt of a free school meal will be able to eat it at break time on the 20th July.

A very exciting piece of news is that our new build is almost complete and we are due to move in on September 4th 2017. The building project manager is very clear that staff will need a few days to move their things and set up and check the systems and processes. Therefore, we will be ending school one day early (to pack - see above) and the start of the Autumn term 2017 will be delayed:

  • Years 7, 11 and 12 return to school on Friday 8th September. 
  • Year 11 arrive at 8.25 
  • Year 7 arrive at 9.25
  • Year 12 arrive at 10.45
  • Years 8, 9, 10, 13 return to school on Monday 11th September
  • ALL Year groups arrive for 8.25 start
I do hope that the later start of the school year will not prove too inconvenient. 

Yours faithfully,

Ms L Kirby-Klappholz
