5 children graduate from the University of Portsmouth


Yesterday 5 children from Year 6 had the opportunity to visit the University of Portsmouth! Organised by ‘Up For It Juniors’, the children were given a lecture about Radiology and a tour of the University. During the tour, they could reflect on the types of courses they might like to study from Dentistry to Law.

After lunch, the children were given an interactive quiz about what they had learned from the morning, they interviewed current students of the university, created their own university campus and took part in a graduation ceremony with one of the five deans of the university. What a fabulous experience for the children – take a look at the photos…

Sports Day 2015

I have had plenty of parents, carers, teachers and children telling me how much they enjoyed Sports Day last week. We were extremely lucky with the weather on Thursday for the children from Reception, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 and again on Friday for the Nursery children.

A big thank you to all of the parents and carers for their support. It was a delight to see so many children so well supported by the people they care about.

Thank you also to the Friends of Flying Bull for providing refreshments to the spectators and to the staff for their hard work organising the event and supporting the children throughout the day.

Here are some photos from a memorable day….

Help us save money for Kingswood 2016!!


Kingswood is working in partnership with The Happy Egg Company to be able to offer discounts on residential trips to the site. After an extremely successful 4-day trip last weekend, we are keen for as many children as possible to experience the fun in June 2016 and reduce the cost to parents!

By collecting the codes from boxes of Happy Egg Company eggs, we can save £10 for each code that is collected.

We could save as much as £1000 off the total price of the trip for the school.

Have a look at these photos from Kingswood 2015:

World Challenge Day

This video is dedicated to a recent Focus Day – World Challenge Day.  It was made to inspire children to enjoy challenging themselves in sport, and to understand how to play as a team and stay fit and healthy.  It was a great practice for Sports Day, which this year falls on Thursday 25th June.

Lead Learners…. and about time!
