Parent Guide 2024


I am delighted that you have chosen us for your child’s secondary education. I am looking forward to working in partnership with you during the next seven years to ensure that your child achieves or surpasses their academic and social potential.

I am proud to be the Head Teacher of the Kimberley School and my aim is to ensure students enjoy school, feel safe, achieve outstanding academic exam results, and have access to a vast range of exciting opportunities outside of the classroom that help prepare them for a
successful adult life.

I fully understand the anxieties that parents can experience during transition from Year 6 and you
should be reassured that our priority is to work with you and your child to ensure that they have the best possible start to life at Kimberley. Our track record of successful transition is outstanding. This booklet will tell you more about the school and help you prepare for September, however, if you do have any questions at all then please don’t hesitate to contact the school and we will be happy to help.
