We have just received the Ofsted report from the safeguarding inspection last week and we will be emailing a copy of the report to all our parents at the start of next half term. You can find out more about the inspection and the outcomes and read the report here
It is with great sadness that The Kings of Wessex Academy learned on Thursday 5 October 2017 afternoon of the untimely death of former student Johdi Russell.
Johdi left Kings at the end of Year 12 last summer and she will be remembered very fondly as an eternally happy, beautiful girl. Johdi was excited by life, and always saw the positive in everyone and everything. She was funny, bubbly and friendly, and could light up any conversation. Even when Johdi was faced with adversity she did not allow it to define her and was determined to make the most of every situation. Johdi had the broadest sweetest smile that will always be remembered by those who knew her.
The Academy will be supporting Johdi's younger sister, friends, students and staff in school.
Staff and students attended Johdi's funeral yesterday, Thursday 19 October 2017 at St Andrew's Church to celebrate her life.
Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and loved ones.
