New Year 7 induction

Induction day - Wednesday 3rd July.

• Children should arrive to the Academy at 8:25am and enter through the Kenmure Road Gate
• Students will get to meet their tutors an take part in a range of activities throughout the day
• Students need to wear casual clothes and trainers – they will take part in PE lessons. They will also be outside at times – please apply suncream if needed.
• Students need to bring their bags with them so they have their pencil cases and water bottles – please label the bags so they know which is theirs.
• Students will be dismissed at 3:00pm and make their way out of the Kenmure Road Gate. Students can make their own way home from secondary schools however you may want to meet your child at the gate.

We are looking forward to meeting our new Year 7 students.

We are looking forward to you joining us and want to ensure your move from primary school to the Academy is both positive and enjoyable.

We want your time at KESH to be successful and fun. We will be working with you, your family and your primary school teachers to find out as much as we can about you to help you settle into senior school life. By doing this we can make sure we are prepared to support you when you arrive in September.

Moving on to senior school is an important step – you will be studying a lot of different subjects and having to move around the school between different lessons.

You will also start off again as the youngest in the school. We will work hard over the coming months to support you as you prepare to join us.

You will have a form tutor who will be there to support you both when you start and throughout your time with us.

You can keep up to date via our social media too.

If you or your parents have a question you would like to ask please feel free to contact the Academy using the form below.

Please note the following points in order to make the application process easier:

  • To input Date of Birth you need to click on the month to get a drop down list, same for year and then choose the day from the calendar that will update based on month and year.
  • The drop down list for schools is also quite sensitive, so please ensure the correct school has been selected prior to submitting your application as this is the school that your details will be sent to in order to check you meet the criteria
  • Please include a space in your postcode, this makes the checking process so much easier our end.
  • When you submit your application the page should clarify that it has been received. Please refrain from calling us unless absolutely necessary, we dealt with over 3500 applications last year and we need to concentrate our time on getting the vouchers issued.
The closing date for applications will be Sunday 3rd July 2022.

Vouchers should be issued the last week in July. We are looking into the possibility of issuing voucher codes rather than paper vouchers. This is still in early planning, but please be certain that your email address is correct and monitored for this reason.
