  • Pope Benedict XVI leaves the Vatican
    28th February 2013

    The bells tolled briefly as the 85-year-old Pope Emeritus (meaning retired pontiff) left the Vatican for the last time in a white-painted Italian Air Force helicopter. It soared into the air on a brisk, sunny winter's evening, taking off from the private helipad in a corner of the Vatican gardens. After a couple of passes over Vatican City, the pilots headed for the papal villa at Castel Gandolfo in the Alban Hills. Benedict then climbed out after a brief 15-minute flight and wished a brief goodnight and goodbye to crowds of local wellwishers, before he withdrew - supposedly for ever - from public life.

    On Wednesday 27th February we held our annual Options Evening, for parents of Year 9 students, to inform them about the important choices that they need to make over the coming weeks in preparation for their child's Key Stage 4 Curriculum.

    Pope Benedict XVI to Resign

    Today on Monday 11th February 2013 Pope Benedict XVI announced that he is to resign at the end of this month after nearly eight years as the head of the Catholic Church, saying he is too old to continue at the age of 85.

  • Birmingham Level 3 Winter Games

    Birmingham Level 3 Winter Games
    7th February 2013

    On Thursday 7th February, Mr Finnigan and Miss Porter took the U14 & U16 and the Year 7 athletics team to the Birmingham Level 3 Winter Games. Having qualified in the previous Kingsbury School Sport Partnership competition, both teams were facing competitive competition from other partnerships from across the city. Having arrived at the Birmingham National Indoor Arena, all competitors were asked to agree to the oath of the School Games Values which was followed by an opening ceremony. The Badminton Team were then transported to Nechelles Leisure Centre where both teams put good performances but were unlucky to be put up against King Edwards School and both teams were unlucky to beat them. However, Talha Tarique (year 11) was the only player in the tournament to push his opponent from King Edwards to the final stages, where he was knocked out after losing 17-15. Mr Finnigan like to comment on how well behaved the teams were and represented the school and the KSSP in true Campion style. Read More

    Andy Milne from the AA driving school was welcomed to the school by the Sixth form this week. He gave an engaging presentation on road safety to students highlighting the facts and figures that affect teenagers both when driving and being passengers in their friend’s cars. Students had the opportunity to wear ‘beer goggles’ to find out what it would be like if they tried driving after taking alcohol. The glasses distorted student’s vision in the same way that drinking alcohol would. Students also reviewed a number of video clips demonstrating the unfortunate loss of life associated with young people joy riding. Read More
