Remembering Titanic, 110 years on

Year 6 had an adventurous morning on Tuesday as Titanic survivors in 1912. All in role ( including Mrs Land-Jones and Mrs Armstrong) with character parts and costumes they reboarded the Titanic, and with the help of technology, explored its decks and facilities and watched in horror as the ship broke and sank. In teams, they investigated historic sources to find out more and then 'interview ' (or interrogate!) five key real life  characters from the day , including the lookout - James Shambrook, the ship's Captain - Noah Wilson, the manager of the White Star Line- Elijah Cheeseman, the First Officer Ollie Thorpe and the Captain of a neighbouring ship. With this information they wrote reports explaining who they believed to be the MOST responsible for the massive loss of life . Not all agreed, but most believed it was Captain Lord

(played brilliantly by Joe Scurr) - who had most to answer for. Some serious lessons were learnt that day in 1912, and hopefully much was learnt and enjoyed by Year 6 110 years late.

"Anyone considering The King’s School for their children, will be making the best decision they have ever made for their academic, spiritual, emotional and social growth. Both my children attended the school and I have no doubt that the environment and staff played a key role in their development to encounter and thrive in the world."

Mrs Pole

"My son joined The King’s School in Year 2. The teachers, right from the start, identified his needs and made recommendations to assist him – provided us with guidance and support throughout, which made such a huge difference to my son who needed both behavioural and educational support"

Mrs Hamilton

"We've been part of The King’s School family for 7 years. We've seen our children grow in stature, maturity and their own personal faith. At no other school will you ever be given a prophetic word or verse of Scripture for your child! They're loved, cherished and valued by ALL the staff as if they were their own children."

Mrs Boxall

"The King’s School has been a huge blessing to us and our children. They love learning here, they love the teachers, they love the atmosphere. We’d recommend it to anyone."

Mr Hicks

"The King’s School's been an amazing experience for not only our children, but for our entire family. The school welcomed our family when we moved to the area, other parents and children were incredibly supportive and kind, and we instantly felt at home."

Mrs Shergill

"The King’s School is beautiful, inside and out! Every day our daughter learns so much more than just phonics and maths, she learns who she is and what she can do as an individual, and this school not only allows her to do this but encourages and supports her in every aspect."

Mrs Price

"The King's School is incredible. The staff are amazing and really care about & know all the children so well. Our girls have come on in leaps & bounds since joining. We love the atmosphere and the whole ethos. Couldn't imagine them being anywhere else now. "

Mrs Mullane

"Fantastic School. I have 1 in senior in his last year, and 2 in primary. The communication between staff and parents is very good. The kindness shown by staff throughout the primary school clearly inspires the pupils to emulate this towards each other. Highly Recommended."
