There are many reasons for parents to choose Kelvin Hall School for their child when they move up from primary school, as this year will be one of great success and change at the school.
At the start of the 2011/2012 school year, staff and students are celebrating the school’s best ever GCSE results, with 60 per cent of students achieving the government’s ‘gold standard’ of five A* to C grades, including English and Maths.
This is a fantastic result as the national target was for all schools to achieve a 40 per cent pass rate at the gold standard and this year’s results place Kelvin Hall in the top three schools in Hull for achievement at GCSE.
Kelvin Hall pupils have always been successful in their performance outside the classroom too, with many taking part in sports teams and entering competitions such as Rock Challenge.
During 2010/2011, the boy’s badminton team made it to the national finals at Centre Parcs; the key stage four basketball team won the Hull Basketball League; and the Kelvin Hall squad came second place overall in the Hull schools heat of Rock Challenge, as well as winning five other awards on the night.
The new Kelvin Hall school building
From Easter 2012, all pupils will benefit from the opening of the new £27 million school building, which has been built as part of Hull’s Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme.
The new building will improve the facilities on offer by bringing the school up-to-date with all the latest technologies and learning styles, offering more flexibility and choice to students.
The new building also has a larger capacity and means that the school can now accept 300 new children each year, gradually increasing the school’s pupil numbers from 1,000 in 2010/2011 to 1,500 by 2015.
Events and Activities for Primary School Children
At Kelvin, we hold a variety of activities and clubs specially aimed at children from local primary schools. These events, such as sporting activities and the 'Science Investigators' club are held to show the children what we have to offer and to help them become acclimatised with the site before they begin secondary school.
See the news section of our website for more information about ongoing activities for primary school children.
