Kingsmead has a proud tradition of opening the school on a Saturday for students to come into school and continue with their studies. Saturday School takes place between 10.00am and 1.00pm in the library. There are a range of staff available to support students with their studies. Students also have access to the school computers and resources.
This year we have focused our Saturday School to support students in years groups where they are preparing for exams. Year 11 work in the Library, whereas sixth form students work in B12.
Students sign themselves in and out of the library and value the relaxed atmosphere. There is no need for school uniform and they do not need to stay for the whole three hours.
Students use Saturday School for a range of different reasons. Many attend Saturday School to complete homework and coursework, with others using it as an opportunity to study alongside their friends. Students also take advantage of Saturday School as it provides a calm, quiet environment where they can revise.
Students have told us that they value Saturday School as they are 'able to revise in a peaceful environment with the help of teachers.' Furthermore, students have reported how it has helped them with their revision as 'there are more people around to gain knowledge from.'
