Kineton High School wins Rotary Youth Speaks District Competition in Birmingham!

Mr Bonfield and Mrs Rutherford-Edge were more proud than they can express to witness Kineton High School’s public speaking team win the Rotary Youth Speaks competition at the Arden Hotel, Birmingham on Saturday 17th March. The senior competition featured nine teams from a range of private, grammar, and comprehensive schools as well as 6th form colleges.


The Kineton team was praised by the judges for their ability to fulfil all the criteria of their roles as well as the way it was clear how well they gelled as a team. The judges went on to say that their speech, “Post-Weinstein Golden Globes: a lesson in hypocrisy?”, was a difficult topic, but was handled with just the right level of academic rigour, good taste and humour.  Together, the Kineton team clocked up a stunning 98/115 points.


As always, it was a really interesting afternoon listening to all the teams and reflecting on each one’s strengths and weaknesses.  The Kineton team are through to the Midlands Regional competition which will be held on 21st April.  Best of Luck!

Kineton High School students raise a record breaking £2,865 for Katherine House Hospice!

Kineton High School’s Christmas Fair was part of the Karcher Accumulator Challenge to raise money for Katherine House Hospice. On Tuesday 6th March students from Kineton High School, in Warwickshire, attended the Karcher Accumulator Challenge Awards Ceremony which presented prizes for the most money raised. Kineton High School students were awarded the prize for ‘Most Raised by a School’ for the fourth year running by raising the record breaking amount of £2,865 which will help make a real difference to the community. The awards ceremony was a great way to celebrate the amazing achievement of Kineton High School Students who worked tirelessly to produce luxury Christmas hampers, handmade Christmas decorations, mince pies and other festive treats to sell at the Christmas Fair.

Heart Healthy for Valentines Day


As part of Flexible Learning Day, our year 9 students took part in the Warwickshire Heart Shield with Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service in partnership with Public Health Warwickshire and Jaguar Land Rover volunteers.


Pupils from Kineton school have spent Valentine’s Day learning how to keep their heart in top condition. One hundred and fifty pupils from the school took part in Warwickshire Heart Shield for the second year running and learned how to prevent cardiovascular disease.

The initiative is delivered by Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service in partnership with Public Health Warwickshire and Jaguar Land Rover volunteers. Secondary school pupils are trained in emergency life support skills such as Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and how to use a defibrillator. They also learn how to put someone into the recovery position and receive advice on a healthy diet and lifestyle.

Through engaging with schools in this way, the Warwickshire Heart Shield initiative aims to increase bystander CPR rates and reduce cardiovascular disease across the county.

Since the project was launched in June 2016 over 3,200 Warwickshire pupils have been taught key life saving skills in 15 of Warwickshire’s secondary schools. Evaluation feedback from Heart Shield has been excellent: 100% of the schools who have taken part have confirmed that they would like us to continue to deliver Heart Shield as part of their PSHE programme.

Every pupil taking part in the initiative completes an evaluation. Data shows that knowledge of CPR and heart health increases in 98% of pupils after a Heart Shield session, with over 85% of pupils feeling confident that they could perform CPR in the event of an emergency.

Portfolio Holder for Community Fire Safety, Councillor Howard Roberts said:

“It’s fantastic to see Warwickshire Heart Shield doing such fantastic work with schools. CPR is vital skill to have and the more pupils who learn it, the safer we will be as a county.”
