North Kesteven Academy is proudly hosting another medical conference – October’s free interactive conference is designed for Year 12 students from the East Midlands, who are interested in studying medicine.
7 year 10s and 2 year 9s enjoyed 3 days at a Medical Summer School at Leicester University. All of them thoroughly enjoyed the experience, sampling what it might be like to attend a Medical School. Activities included using real medical equipment; they saw first hand the day in the life of a doctor.
Mr Neil Wilkinson-McKie, Headteacher at North Kesteven School says, “It has been our privilege to be working closely with our two Medical Schools partners and the Medical Schools Council to create and stage this fantastic event.
On Thursday 22nd June our champion poets (Ella Moir, Joseph Payne and Molly Inkpin) attended the Final of this year’s Slam Jam 2017 competition at the Lincoln Drill Hall. Although we did not emerge as overall winners our students delivered powerful and highly accomplished performances.
This year the school has been able to run an after school golf club at The Lincoln Golf Centre at Thorpe on the Hill as a result of funding from the Golf Foundation. Part of the funding included some free golf equipment for the school.
Pupils at North Kesteven School achieved highly in this year’s UKMT Junior Maths Challenge. Over 250,000 pupils form across the UK sat the Junior Maths Challenge with roughly the top 6% receiving a gold certificate, the next 13 % silver and the next 21% bronze.
Today year 7 students supported our N.K parents, Mr and Mrs Hatzel, who will be cycling from London to Paris this summer in aid of Breast Cancer Now. N.K. was awash with pink from nails to lipstick, socks to hairbows. It brightened up our day and for such a good cause.
Exciting opportunity for parents and students! Make the most of the summer holidays. Monday July 11th 7pm – 8pm GCSE English Parental Engagement Evening in the school hall. This will be led by the English department.
