Year 5 Open Events:
On Thursday 8 June 2023 we will be holding our Open Evening and two Open Mornings on Tuesday 6 June and Tuesday 13 June 2023 for Year 5 pupils looking to join NKS in September 2024. The Open Evening in June will allow you to meet the staff and have a tour of the school. Each department will be available to talk to and there will an extended talk from the Headteacher as well as the Head Boy and Girl.
The Open Mornings will allow you to explore the school during a typical day. You will have a tour from a couple of students who will be able to answer any questions that you have. These mornings compliment the Open Evening very well.
A sign up form to register your attendance for any of the above Year 5 open events will be available here closer to the time.
Year 6 Transition Days:
We will be holding two transition days for our September 2023 pupils who have accepted a school place with us. These days are on Wednesday 28 June and Thursday 29 June with a Parents’ Information Evening on Wednesday 28 June (time to be confirmed). This will consist of two days where your child comes into school and familiarises themselves with the school site, new peers and the staff who will be supporting the journey into Year 7. More information will also be available closer to the time.
