Young Enterprise at Kingsthorpe College

Year 12 students have shown their enterprising side by setting up four Young Enterprise companies:

The Hamper Company will be assembling and selling a variety of specialist hampers
Divergence  will be aiming to raise awareness of racial equality through the sale of T-shirts and wrist bands
Paradox intend to manufacture and sell para-cord bracelets which they will personalise

The 6ix have formed and are currently exploring business opportunities.

Post 16 students attend talk by human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell

On the 27th September students in year 12 were invited along to an exclusive talk by leading human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell at the University of Northampton. The human rights activist, who hit the headlines in 2001 when he was beaten by bodyguards after attempting a citizen’s arrest of Zimbabwe’s President Mugabe, appeared as part of the National Hate Crime Awareness Week, with much of the focus on, in Peter’s words “the unfinished battle for LGBT human rights”.

Post 16 information evening

We are delighted to have had such a big turnout for our Post 16 information evening, with well over one hundred parents and students coming along on the night.  Director of Post 16, Paul Pomerantz, gave a talk welcoming year 12 parents to the latest chapter in their son or daughters education career, explaining the expectations of what being a Post 16 student at Kingsthorpe College involves.
