Open Evening 2019 - The Greatest show
On Wednesday the 18th September, we opened our doors to 311 families - almost a thousand people- to welcome them to our Greatest Showman themed Open Evening!
Visitors were treated to a bubble display from the World's Tallest Bubbleologist; a meet and greet with some magical unicorns and of course singing from the Bearded Lady!
After an inspirational speech from Mr Westoby, guests then toured round the academy to each of our subject shows. From learning circus tricks in the big tent with P.E., creating spectacular poisons with the Science department and escaping the burning building in Drama - guests were wowed and amazed by the dedication and imagination of our teachers.
In addition to this, Parents were able to discuss the curriculum with Subject Leaders - and of course hear about our outstanding results.
Next year's theme will soon be announced .....

Kingswood Academy headteacher Richard Westoby said the progress 8 has improved to +1.07. 78% of students achieved a 4 or above in Maths and English, above the national average.
The grade 5 and above improved to 42%, above the national average. Attainment 8 achievement across subjects is 56.5, well above national average and 22% of students got a grade 9 which is in the top 5% performance in the country, according to the Kingswood Academy headteacher.
Mr Westoby said: “I’m really pleased for the students. They’ve worked so hard and are the best group of students we’ve ever had. They’ve been so driven and worked well with staff. I’m so proud of our staff too they’ll do whatever it takes to make sure all the kids get what they need.
“I’m really excited that these kids will be going to college and thrive. They’ve got big plans to go to university and have plans to go and become doctors and solicitors and more.
“They’ve set the standard now for the next year group and we want to continue to be the best we can be. I’m just overwhelmed with pride. The results are the best ever.”
