  • Sliding to Success

    The Kingsley School’s U14 ski team have recently returned from the English Schools’ Indoor Ski Championships with trophies in individual and team races.

    The competition, which took place at Chill Factore in Manchester on Sunday 14th May, saw school ski teams from across the UK compete in individual and team slalom races. The Kingsley School team, comprising of Emma Lawton, Hannah Dennison, Lorenza Chapman and Lucy Sainsbury, finished 2nd overall in the team race, with Hannah and Emma finishing 3rd and 4th in the individuals respectively. Kingsley finished second to Surbiton High School, the largest and most renowned school ski club in the country, by a few seconds.

    Ski Team Manager, Mr Alan Edwards, said, “This is a fantastic result for Kingsley. The girls’ commitment and dedication is admirable; they are quickly working up the ranks to become one of the country’s top school ski squads.”

  • Kingsley Daughters Explore the Workplace

    For one day in the spring term, Year 8 girls at The Kingsley School get an exciting chance to step into the world of work, when we invite their parents to participate in national ‘Take Your Daughter to Work’ day. 

    This year, girls headed off to design agencies, hospitals, engineering firms, hotels and a variety of other businesses to learn more about the roles their parents have and to discover what exactly they do each day!  The girls all loved the chance to step into the workplace, with Tasha saying “it was a thoroughly enjoyable day. I want to do it again! For Milly, it was “an amazing experience. I felt like I was actually working for them.  Making a logo for a company was unreal because I can tell people that I created it.” 

    Some stayed closer to home, such as Cecilia who worked in Prep at Kingsley for the day.  “I really enjoyed working with the little children and helping them with phonics. I had a really good first-hand experience of teaching work.”

    Mrs Bennett, Careers Coordinator feels, “this day is an important part of our girls’ careers education, giving them an early insight into the world of work, exposing them to what goes on during the working day, showing and strengthening the connection between education and the world of work and therefore reinforcing the value of their education”.

    ‘Take Your Daughter to Work’ day is often the first chance for girls to really experience the workplace, and is a brilliant opportunity for families to start those early conversations exploring career possibilities for their daughters.   Our current year 7s can’t wait until they can visit next year!

  • Marketeers in the Making!

    Year 9 students recently enjoyed an exciting enterprise day – the Chocolate Challenge - at The Kingsley School, working in teams to explore different working roles in a company and learning more about key entrepreneurial and employability skills such as leadership, communication, organisation, working with numbers, teamwork and negotiation. 

    Each team formed a 'company' and assigned their working roles of Marketing & Sales Director, Brand Consultant, Production Manager, Financial Director and Buying Manager, Ably led by a Managing Director, they then had to design, package and plan the marketing for their product - whilst hopefully making a profit along the way! - culminating in a presentation to the judges.

    The students produced some excellent results, demonstrating original thinking and resourcefulness along the way.  Innovative ideas included linking chocolates to a free app (with collectable emojis to scan contained within the packaging), and chocolate treats for dogs contained within a fun toy designed to break open on play.  There was some really imaginative work and all teams worked fantastically well together.  The students themselves reflected on the skills they used during the day, suggesting ‘creativity, collaboration, imagination, persuasive writing, maths, listening, perseverance, style, confidence, originality and design’. 

    Careers Coordinator Mrs Bennett said:  “What a fantastic day!  The girls successfully overcame any challenges they faced and produced some truly impressive product ideas and presentations.  Days such as these provide an excellent opportunity for our students to widen their knowledge of different careers and are a chance for them to develop many skills, in particular, their flair for design and marketing.  Feedback shows the girls particularly enjoyed working collaboratively in teams and seeing the fantastic results they achieved when they worked together, recognising that combining ideas can make them even better!”
