KJ Linked - Weekly Learning Toolkit

25/05/2020 - KJ Linked Issue 8 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.

Earn While You Learn

June 2019


Year 12 student, Kyle B worked with primary school pupils in Food Technology. Kyle is considering primary teaching as a career.

There are a number of ways you can earn money as a Sixth Former at King James. Some, such as becoming a bus or coach escort, offer a wage throughout the academic year, whilst other opportunities offer employment for a specific period.

Sixth Formers are paid by the hour as a Primary Mentor at our primary events. Each year we welcome around 500 primary school pupils to King James for Year 5 Curriculum Week. Students take part in learning activities around the school in all departments to experience secondary school life and we employ a team of enthusiastic Sixth Form Guides to greet pupils when they arrive, give tours, escort groups between classrooms and make sure that their allocated school has an amazing time. This year's team has done a fantastic job of making visiting children feel at home and showcasing the vibrant and friendly atmosphere that makes King James so special.

Students can also apply to become Mentors for Year 6 pupils at Induction Day events which take place during the last weeks of the Summer term, and during Summer School sessions for our new starters. We also employ Sixth Formers as bus and coach escorts on our various school transport routes to ensure that our students ride safely; and Community Centre vacancies are filled by Sixth Formers who run our the Reception area and Sports facilities after 4.30pm.

All Sixth Form jobs are in high demand so students must apply for these positions formally and attend an interview.
