Starting secondary school is an exciting time. We have spoken to some of our recent year 7 students about their experiences of joining The Kingsway Academy. Below they talk about making friends, finding their way around a new place and their new subjects. Our recent year 7 students come along to our open evenings so that you can ask them directly about their experiences with us so far.

Ciaran Hayes

Hi, my name is Ciaran Hayes. I hope you are excited about coming to your new school. There is no need to be worried at all because everyone here is so nice! One of my favourite lessons is PE because the facilities are very good and there are lots of opportunities. I recently took part in the sports hall athletics competition against other schools, which was great fun. I hope you have a brilliant time in the Academy and I will see you soon!

Harry Nguyen

Hi, my name is Harry and I started at The Kingsway Academy in September. Since starting I have made lots of new friends. My favourite lessons are all of them because you can learn new things in each subject. Don’t worry about starting in Year 7 because you will make new friends and all the teachers are really helpful and friendly. Have a lovely summer break and I will see you in September!

Sam Donoghue

Hello, my name is Sam. My favourite lesson is all of the performing art lessons because I can show off all my creative skills. Last term I took part in The Wizard of Oz and I loved it! Don’t worry about finding your lessons, just ask someone from the older years and within a week you are bound to know where everything is. It is going to be a pleasure meeting you, see you in September!
