Parliament Week Big Assembly

Year 11 Citizenship students had the exciting opportunity to take part in the filming of a promotional “Sowing the seeds of democracy” video for UK Parliament Week which has been shown in schools across the country.  The clip includes interviews with our students demonstrating their ability to articulate their mature understanding of democracy – they are excellent ambassadors for KPHS!

Mike Garry at Kingsway Park High School

The celebrated poet Mike Garry visited our school recently, to work with small groups of our able and talented students from each year group.  Mike led a session on “Relearning to read and write”, helping students re-explore their reading and writing to create a more joyful experience.  Mike’s witty, wise and engaging sessions received an overwhelmingly positive response from students who were keen to know when he would visit again.

Year 8 Visit to Edge Hill University

As part of the Kingsway Aspire programme, thirty Y8 Able and Talented students attended an open event at the Edge Hill University’s Ormskirk campus.  Students took part in interactive lectures and quizzes intended to give them an insight into the student experience, participated in a Q&A session with student guides and enjoyed a tour around the university.  Our students were highly engaged and now have a much clearer idea of university life. The university is keen to widen access to higher education and offers regular on-campus days - we are looking forward to the next opportunity to visit!
