Important Upcoming Events for Year 11s

Dear Parents and Carers,

Re: Important Upcoming Events for Year 11s

I wish to inform you of the important events that will take place as your child approaches the end of their secondary education at Kingsford Community School. The events include Year 11 Leavers Assembly, Progress File Ceremony, the Year 11 Leavers Ball and the publication of the GCSE examination results.

Year 11 Leavers Assembly

Your child should report to school on Tuesday 18th June at 8:30 a.m. to prepare for their Year 11 Progress File ceremony and to celebrate their achievements over the last few years in the Year 11 Leavers Assembly.  Your child must be at the school no later than 8:30 a.m. to gain entry to the Leavers Assembly and must be dressed in full school uniform.  We very much look forward to this celebration.

Progress File Ceremony

I am inviting you to the forthcoming Year 11 Progress File Ceremony on Thursday 4th July 2019, from 6.00 p.m. – 8.30 p.m. at Kingsford Community School. This will be a formal ceremony where the achievements of Year 11 students will be celebrated with the school community of parents, staff, Local Authority personnel and the Governing Body. This evening will be by invitation only and each Year 11 student is allowed a maximum of two invitations for family guests. The dress code for the evening is formal and all students are required to wear their full school uniform including blazer and tie. We request that all guests follow a smart dress code for this evening. The event is expected to finish at around 8.30 p.m.  Please note that students must attend the event in full school uniform and be on site by 3:00 p.m. for a final rehearsal prior to parents and carers arriving at 6:00 pm.

The Progress File Ceremony will be followed by food and refreshments and an opportunity for guests to mingle. To facilitate the organisational arrangements for this ceremony, please confirm that you will be attending via the reply slip attached. This is essential for the compilation of the guest list and in order for your official invitations to be forwarded to you. Admission to the ceremony is strictly by invitation only. The deadline for your reply is Tuesday 18th June 2019. Reply slips should be handed in to your child’s tutor.

Year 11 Leavers Ball

In addition to the above events, I am pleased to announce that the school will host the Annual Year 11 Leavers Ball for the Class of 2019 at the Hilton Hotel (Canary Wharf) on the evening of Friday 12th July 2019. The dress code for this evening is also formal. Further details about the Leavers Ball has been distributed to Year 11 students.

Collection of GCSE examination results

The GCSE examination results printed by the school will be available for collection at the school by students on Thursday 22nd August 2019.  Students who wish to come in to the school to collect their results should report to the school reception from 11.00 a.m. – 12.30 p.m. on this date.

Thanking you in anticipation of your support in the above matters.

Yours sincerely,


Joan Deslandes OBE
