Frequently Asked Questions

How do I become a senior Student?

You have to complete an application form by having 10 sections signed off by your teachers. Your Head of House will then decide whether your application has been successful. Mrs McLardie will explain all of this in detail in an assembly in second half ofthe Spring Term when Year 11 students have begun their exams.

What is the Awards Evening at the Albert Hall?

This is an annual event to celebrate the many successes of Kimberley students. All winners of subject Achievement Awards which have been presented throughout the year will be invited. There are also many other awards, such as sports, Governors, Head Teacher to name a few. Your parents or carers will be invited to join you as you collect your award.

Who are Head Boy and Girl and what do they do?

Their names are Emma Clements and Jack Allsopp and are both in Year 13. Emma and Jack are here to represent you so if you have any concerns or ideas about the school see your School Council representative who will pass them on. Jack and Emma meet Mr Teal and the Senior Leadership team once a month to feedback your comments. They also represent the School at events in the community such as the service of Remembrance in November

What are Peer Mentors?

How many House Points does my House have?

Check it out when you pass House Base as they change daily!

What are the current merit totals?

Take a look on the board outside House Base. Is your house in the lead? If not, why not? Make sure you collect all your merits form your teachers and have them entered by your ‘merit monitor’ every Tuesday in Tutor Period

What is House base?

House Base is where all the Heads of House/Year are based. You might be asked to go there if we need to talk to you and this might be to say ‘well done’ or it might be to ask you to help us investigate an incident. Mrs Marshall manages the House Base and she is there to help you.

Where can I go for help?

Your tutor is the first person or your subject teacher if something happens in the lesson. Everyone is here to help you though and never be afraid to ask.
