Lots of great hockey played this week some in appalling weather conditions. Well done to all of the girls! The U16 team played fabulous hockey to beat Shipston 11 – 0 and we didn’t even have a goal keeper! The U14s have played 2 matches this week winning against Shipston last night 3-2 with goals from Polly (2) and Beth (1). A photo of the team can be seen here. On Tuesday they played Myton but despite some impressive hockey they lost 3 – 0 – we look forward to a rematch in the Spring. On Tuesday the Years 8s also beat Sibford 2 – 0 but the Year 7s lost. A busy week with lots of talent on show.
WELCOME TO KINETON HIGH SCHOOL
The Geography annual sixth form field trip visited Snowdonia from the 13th-16th November. Wet Welsh weather but amazing landscapes to work with and all good fieldwork practice.
The legacy of the London 2012 Olympics reverberated through the school this autumn with the return of the interhouse Handball competition. After a very successful first year Mr Daly, Head of Adlington House, organised another run of the competition for 2013. Handball is an extremely popular sport at Kineton and the atmosphere has been electrifying in the sports hall as the tutor teams worked their way through the knockout rounds.
Our congratulations go to the winning tutor group Ainslie CS who are the 2013 champions and well played to all of the teams.
11 students from Kineton High School visited Germany’s capital city, Berlin, at half term and came face to face with modern history. The four day visit included a guided tour of the fascinating city of Berlin and visits to landmarks including the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp, Wannsee Memorial House and The Jewish Museum as well as the Berlin Wall Memorial Centre and Checkpoint Charlie.
The experience was extremely thought provoking and has brought to life the history they are studying.
Our Sixth Form Open Evening will be held on the 21st November at 7pm. Come and find out about our vibrant and exciting Sixth Form.
