TO BE YOUR BES IS THE BES THING YOU CAN BE Doing your very best is a way of life at Kettlethorpe. Pupils and staff know that we expect the highest standards from them. The desire to do well, and to applaud those who do well, is simply part of our culture. The range and scope of the courses we offer make it even easier to excel. With a wide range of GCSE, BTEC and vocational college courses to suit every interest and learning style, pupils can choose the subjects they find most appealing, encouraging them to perform to the best of their ability. Our excellent

resources, particularly in our specialist area of Mathematics and ICT, help to create the most appropriate learning environment. To help them become the very best they can be, we support each individual in the way that best suits them, offering accelerated programmes for those who welcome exams, and specialist provision for those whose needs are greater. With so much to motivate them, it’s no wonder that the vast majority of our pupils achieve good – and often outstanding – grades at GCSE.


WHEN W HEN YOU ARE A RE FINISHED CRING, C RING, YOU ARE A RE FINISHED Every young person at Kettlethorpe has their part to play in helping others live a fuller life – starting with their fellow pupils. Our ‘buddying’ system allows pupils to advise and support others in their learning journey, while our prefects and School Council are given a high degree of responsibility and input into the running of the school. Our desire to enrich the lives of others extends into the local community, where pupils work with a number of groups on initiatives such as ICT courses for ‘silver surfers’ and with learners from special schools in the Sportability club. Particularly important to us are the

children at our feeder schools, all of whom we invite to ‘big school’ to try a range of different activities as part of our valued transition programme. Their positive experiences at secondary school before they arrive make it much easier for them to settle in during Year 7. As citizens of a global society, we also extend support and friendship to partners across the country and around the world. Our ‘Solutions for the Planet’ club has debated environmental issues with MPs in London regularly in the last few years. Pupils also raise funds to supply our partner schools in Belarus and Tanzania with resources to improve learning foryoung people abroad.
