Mental Health Awareness is the Winner

On Wednesday 22nd April a group of Kingsthorpe College Sixth Form students known as ProjectMIND competed in the county finals of the national Young Enterprise and won the Best Company award.

The Young Enterprise national Programme aims to “inspire young people to succeed through Enterprise”; its guiding principle is “to learn by doing”. All Sixth Form students at Kingsthorpe College participate in Young Enterprise during both Yr 12 and 13. The programme culminates in the company scheme which ProjectMIND have entered.

Peer teaching

Sixth-Form Peer Teaching in Geography

A2 students have been busy teaching one another about the UK storms of 2000. Two groups embraced the challenge by including graded learning objectives linked to their A-level exam criteria, whilst one group even included an activity focussed around our CAR feedback policy. Within their activity Alex and Parth provided their class with a model exam answer and asked the class to think pink and mark the answer, before developing the task by asking their peers to go green and improve the model answer.


GCSE Art exam

Our Y11 GCSE Art students are very busy preparing for their OCR-set Task, (GCSE Art exam). All three teaching groups have been creating a fantastic range of preparatory studies, using drawings and paintings undertaken from the recent visit to Kew Gardens.
