Welcome to Ken Stimpson Community School!
We know that starting a new school can be a scary thing so we thought we'd put together a little bit of helpful information for you to try and make the experience a little easier. Have a look around this page and our website and if you have an other questions feel free to contact us.
Induction Day 2019
New Year 7 students are expected to attend our induction day on Tuesday 3rd September 2019
You should arrive on site for 8:30-8:45am and should meet outside of the Sports Centre. You should be wearing your school uniform and bring your PE kit with you. Break time will be at 11:05-11:35am and you should bring a packed lunch if needed or money to buy from our canteen, free school meal students will be catered for.
The induction session will end at 12:30pm.
All students will begin their full timetable on Wednesday 4th September 8:45am - 3:15pm. Your first lesson will be in tutor groups and then you will follow your normal timetable for the rest of the day.
Moving around a new school can be a daunting task! Here's some useful facts to help you navigate our school and you can also check out our downloadable site map here
- Our site consists of 5 blocks
- Classrooms are either upstairs (Upper) or downstairs (Lower)
- All classrooms are named with a 4 character code
- Which block it is in
- Whether it is upstairs (U) or downstairs (L)
- How far around the corridoor it is
So, for example, a classroom with code 3U23 is in Block 3, Upstairs and the 23 classroom along
Don't worry, as you move around the site you will soon pick up where your classrooms are!
One of the best ways to get off to a good start at a new school and to give yourself that little burst of confidence is to make sure you're wearing the correct clothes. Check out our uniform page to see what you can and can't wear at Ken Stimpson and if in doubt check with your Tutor first!

If you are cycling to school you will need to ensure you have a good bike lock and a helmet. You can lock your bike at the front of the school where it can be collected at the end of the day.
