Kingsmead held its annual presentation evening on Wednesday 12 September to celebrate the achievements of its students during the previous academic year.  The event was attended by students, parents, staff and governors and awards were presented for academic subject and sport accomplishments.  Headteacher and Leader of Student Support Commendations were also awarded together with the following school trophies:- 

  • Owen Waygood (Year 10) – The Peter Mullan Rotary Cup for Excellent Progress in the Enrichment Centre

  • Ross Leach (Year 11) – The Zambian Trophy for achievement in Geography (a new award this year, kindly donated by the Kingsmead/Kitwe exchange parents)

Guests enjoyed musical interludes on the night with a medley of songs from “We Will Rock You”, performed by some of the student cast of the show which will hit the Kingsmead stage this November.  Year 10 Scott Fudge also left the crowd spellbound with his saxophone performance, playing his own composition entitled “A summer evening in Somerset.”

The school was pleased to welcome back Mark Griffin and Gill Turner who retired from their roles as Headteacher and Chair of Governors in the summer and to thank them for their service to Kingsmead.
