LocatED run exciting clubs at Kilburn Grange School

Pupils at Kilburn Grange School have had the opportunity to attend clubs run by staff from education property firm, LocatED.

Run over the second half of the Autumn Term, two clubs ‘Latin and Ballroom’ and ‘Board Games’ clubs provide pupils with an opportunity to mix with professionals from the property world and develop new skills. As you can see from the pictures, our children are really enjoying the chance to play chess and develop their strategic skills!

Sonia Mallick, Headteacher at Kilburn Grange School stated that “We are very fortunate that a specialist company have offered their time to visit the school, engage with our children and share their experiences of the working world while having fun and teaching valuable skills at the same time! The pupils have absolutely loved the experience”

Staff at LocatED were invited to deliver a club for one hour a week at Kilburn, generously suggested by the Chief Executive of LocatED, Lara Newman.

LocatED are a government-owned property company creating much-needed school places for thousands of children. For more information on LocatED, please visit www.located.co.uk.

Lara commented that “our team were very enthusiastic to work with pupils in schools that we have supported to develop and see that thrive when developing new skills. Understanding what we have helped develop is very exciting!”.

Kilburn Grange School would like to thank Lauren, Nadia, Maya, Ravinder, Matthew, Sam, Michael, Alrick and Emma, who have all helped with the two clubs.

Below are some pictures of the clubs in action, with the pupils who have benefited:

The school is not only catering for the educational needs of the children, but also giving parents the opportunity to support their child’s learning by the various workshops offered and the frequent opportunity to join your child in the classroom to read with him/her”.

“Our son not only enjoys coming to school to see his friends, he is passionate about learning and has developed socially. I would recommend Kilburn Grange School with no hesitation and truly cannot wait for the further development of the school and the success of its pupils”.

 

“The school has been really supportive, not just to my son but to myself. My son really enjoys coming to school and always talks about the lessons he has done and the books he has read.”
