King´s Lockdown Anthology
We are delighted to share with you our first issue of the King´s Lockdown Anthology; a collection of poems, articles, drawings, stories, reflections and videos, submitted by members of our school community during the lock down period. We are aiming to produce a number of issues before the end of the school year and will then combine them all when we return to school to produce a permanent version of the anthology to remember this unique period of time in all our lives.
Please do take some time to read through the issue and to also watch the videos submitted by our talented students. Each issue of the anthology is available via our school blog here.
A huge thank you to everyone who has already submitted content to this issue, we welcome submissions from all students, teachers, parents and alumni. This is a King´s community project, and we want to celebrate all creative output and reflections during this time. You can submit content to the anthology here.
We very much hope you enjoy reading the anthology and possibly allow it to bring out your own hidden talents!

Our Experience at the Global Youth Fest 2020
International Women’s Day at King’s
This week, we were visited by some very important women who came to inspire our girls (and boys too) for International Women’s Day. Gillian Motlhamme (Political Counsellor for South Africa in Spain) and Fuencisla Clemares (Head of Google Spain and Portugal) visited to discuss their incredible achievements and how important it is to hear these from a woman’s perspective and experience. The students participated heavily, asking lots of questions and listening intently to the answers.
Ms Gillian Motlhamme met with all of our Prefects and Key Stage Council members to discuss her career, and politics as a whole. We were so proud of our passionate students and how many questions they all had for Gillian! We hope she will be back one day to continue the conversation. The same goes for Mrs Clemares, for which the session over ran as the children had endless interesting questions about her role and her experiences in the business.
Thank you to all of our students who paticipated, recognising International Women’s Day as the important event it is and why it is so important that we celebrate it as much as we can!
