Kineton Equestrian Success

Congratulations to the students that participated in the Winchester House Schools Hunter Trials on Sunday 10th May at Foxhill Farm in Eydon.  This was the first event for Kineton’s new equestrian team.  Jumping the 2’6 course was Imogen Hanly, Abbie Booth and Molly Fletcher and the 3’3 course was Henry Burton, Nicole Goldsmith and Zoe Young.  All of the riders did brilliantly with Henry and Zoe both having a clear rounds and Imogen and Molly having just one stop each at an awkward fence that caused a problem for several teams.  We gained 2nd, 5th and 7th places!

Looking forward to the next event and bringing home some more ribbons for Kineton High!

Engineering Education Scheme

Kineton Sixth Formers work with Severn Trent on Engineering Project

A team of Kineton High School students including Tom Jelfs (team leader), Dennis Barker, Luke Clay, Harris Newman, Gavin Faulkner and Oliver Valentine have been working in conjunction with Severn Trent Water.  Under the auspices of the Engineering Education Scheme the students have been working on a real life project to design and build a mobile pump lifting system with an engineering mentor from Severn Trent, Gary Kinley.

The Engineering Scheme has provided then with in-depth work experience in science, engineering and technology.  After a number of weeks of preparation including planning, evaluating materials and making scale models, the students from Kineton Sixth Form visited City of Birmingham University just before Christmas where they spent three days making components for their mini crane.   After further testing they subsequently worked on revising and finalising their designs and then produced a final report and presentation.

On Thursday, April 30th, the students travelled to Cranmore Park in Solihull along with other schools to successfully present their results to the scheme’s assessors.  Mrs Garwell, the group’s mentor, Mrs Robson, Head teacher and Mr Savory, Chair of Governors also attended the event and were delighted and proud to hear very positive feedback from the assessors who particularly commented on their creative problem solving skills and team work.

Their completed project has also earned them a gold CREST award.  CREST is the British Science Association award scheme recognising success and achievement in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths project work).  The CREST awards are well regarded and a tangible recognition of success.

This is the third year Kineton has participated in the Engineering Scheme which we offer to our Sixth Form students as part of their curriculum enrichment.

Thomas Jelfs (team leader) says

‘I thoroughly enjoyed my time on the Engineering Education Scheme working with Severn Trent and believe the team and myself gained valuable life experience in project management and presentational skills.  I’d recommend the scheme to others in the future especially the CREST qualification which helps your CV stand out from the rest.’

and team member Dennis Barker says

‘I have learnt a lot whilst participating in the EES scheme, including in depth report writing and how to cohere as a group when tackling such a large task, a skill that in future jobs will be extremely useful’.
