Typical Day at Kenilworth School
The video below was made with several Year 7 students. It shows a typical day at Kenilworth School.
The video follows a student through the day starting with an assembly, followed by lessons, break times, lunchtimes and after school activities.
The move from Primary to Secondary School can be quite a daunting experience for some. Therefore, our aim is to make this move as smooth as possible.
Ways in which we do this are:
The Head of Year 7 and SENCO visit all main feeder schools to talk to the students and the Year 6 teachers. We gather a detailed profile of every student and can provide instant answers to questions students may have.
Providing a fully structured induction day in the summer term, to allow students to familiarise themselves with the school, meet their tutors and sample a variety of new subjects. The following evening, parents are invited to school to meet the Headteacher, Head of Year and the Year 7 tutors.
This year’s induction day will hopefully take place on Wednesday 7th July if government guidelines allow. The parent’s information evening is currently scheduled for the evening of 7th July. Parents will receive further information regarding both of these events nearer the time.
In recent years’ Primary pupils have been invited to take part in workshops where they have been taught by our Year 9 and 10 Learning Ambassadors.
As a result of all of this, students arrive in September with confidence, ready to engage and learn.
