KJ Linked - Weekly Learning Toolkit

13/07/2020 - KJ Linked Issue 15 released!

As you will have seen, the Government is encouraging secondary schools to consider a partial return for Year 10 and Year 12 students from Monday 1st June 2020. Our view continues to be that it is important that we take appropriate, extensive and considered actions to assure the safety of all members of our school community to make the right decision at the right time.

£30,000 Funding for Rock & Pop Institute

January 2020


King James has been granted a further £30,000 in funding from the Arts Council to enable or Music Department to continue delivering our hugely successful Rock & Pop Institute.

Now in its third year, the facility provides an opportunity for young musicians from King James and the surrounding schools to get together on a weekly basis to write and perform music. Members also record at professional studios, create music videos and have the chance to visit and perform at large venues such as The Sage in Gateshead. The funds will be used for staffing costs and to buy new equipment and instruments.
