Kings College Support

Following the succesful Ofsted re-inspection in Dec 2018 which resulted in Kings being judged to be a 'Good' school, our links with Kings have remained but developed.

The focus of the support is now in Physics (GCSE separate science teaching & staff CPD) and Maths (Y9-Y10 algebra & Y11 revision lessons) looking to provide extention to the more able pupils.

There are occasional links with English. We are alwasy open to other links.

Physics: RGS staff teach weekly lessons at RGS. Kings pupils travel to us by minibus with a member of Kings staff. RGS Physics staff have a timetabled lesson in lieu of teaching afterschool. Sometimes a whole day (an activity day) has been used to provide deeper learning. We are just starting to consider providing staff CPD for other non-specialist Kings staff.

Maths: 12 Y9 Kings pupils travel to the RGS for weekly Maths extention in algebra. These lessons occur in our activity time and therefore RGS Sixth Form pupils plan and teach the lessons with RGS staff supervision. Recently, RGS staff have also travelled to Kings to deliver revision sessions for Y11 Kings pupils in the run-up to their GCSEs.

English: Provide whole year group English enrichment opportunities via author visits.
