Following Pret-a-Portrait’s recent visit to the school, student pictures are now available. A viewing card explaining how you can view and order pictures has been sent home with pupils.

Please ask your child to give it to you as soon as possible so you have a chance to order any pictures you would like at a discounted price before the Early Bird Deadline 14th December 2017.

Christmas Order Deadline:

Sunday 10th December for Framed Prints & Phone Cases

Sunday 17th December for Unframed Prints, JPEGs on USB

Excellent Parent Survey Results

Parent Survey Results June 2017

We recently invited all of our parents to complete the annual KGS Parent Survey and we’d like to say a huge thank you to all of you who responded as we had 90% of families complete it. The results of this survey are very important to us and we will use the data to support the forward planning of the school. Click here to read the full letter sent to parents by Ms Richardson.

The parent community are very satisfied with school life at Kilburn Grange School, with the majority of parents describing the school as a happy and caring environment with high standards and clear values.

There is a very clear sense of what most parents regard as the primary strengths of the school. The most common responses were:

  • The clear school values which encourage the children to be caring, kind, and independent learners
  • The range of school trips and extra-curricular activities on offer to the children
  • A welcoming and professional staff and leadership team

Testimonials

I would recommend Kilburn Grange School without hesitation. My child is not only happy to come to school everyday and the learning is fun. The school teaches children to be caring and clever!

My daughter has been extremely happy at Kilburn Grange since her first day and looks forward to going to school and seeing her friends and teachers. She also looks forward to learning at school and coming home to show us and practice with us.

Kilburn Grange consistently exceeds every expectation. I could not be happier with the way my daughter is growing and blossoming. We feel very lucky we found it!

Lovely, friendly, easy to approach teachers who are very motivated a interested in teaching and give little kids the best possible knowledge from the beginning. Encourage kids to reach their potential and achieve the maximum. The words ” no, I can’t do it ” are not used in Kilburn Grange. Every child gets as much support and help as she/he needs. Kids are confident.

KGS in the Brent & Kilburn Times

We recently had a visit from James Scott, a reporter from the Brent & Kilburn Times. James came to visit Kilburn to see the state-of-the-art building for himself and learn about what the future holds now we have full control of the building. Until recently, we have been sharing occupancy at Priory Park Road with Marylebone boys whilst they await their next accommodation. Over the summer some of the classrooms previously used by the older boys will be refurbished to make them suitable for primary school children.

Red Nose Day £190 raised

UPDATE:

Red Nose Day was a great success and we exceeded our target, raising £190! Thank you to everyone who donated, Ms Richardson kept her promise and did a silly dance in assembly dressed as a dragon. There’s still time to donate, see the link below to our JG page…!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On Friday 24th March we will be celebrating Red Nose Day. We’d like all the children to come dressed in red clothes and it would be great if parent/carers could make a donation to our Just Giving Page. We are aiming to raise £150 for comic relief which will provide a child in Kenya with schooling for 1 year.
