Kibworth Mead Academy

At Kibworth Mead Academy we seek every opportunity to develop our young people so that they become successful, confident and responsible young people equipped with academic qualifications as well as the personal and social skills to enable them to make a positive difference to their community and the wider world.

Last term we are proud of how our students took every opportunity to show kindness and think of others in the community. In the run-up to Christmas, students raised over £2000 for Save the Children and Children in Need.

In addition to fundraising, our students have taken part in a range of other opportunities to make a positive difference to the local community. Towards the end of term our music students enjoyed the opportunity to visit Kibworth Knoll care home to sing Christmas carols and spread festive joy to the elderly residents.

Before Christmas Year 10/11 students created nearly 60 fruit and vegetable boxes following a generous donation from the Leicester wholesale market. Once packaged into boxes, students inserted recipe cards and Kibworth Mead staff then delivered them to our families. Students then set up a pop-up stall offering fruit and vegetables to all of our families with many popping along with a bag to collect some beautiful produce. The following morning students were also greeted with some of the delicious fruit for breakfast, providing a nutritious start to the day. Finally, the small amount of produce left over was donated to the community pantry at St Cuthbert’s church in Great Glen to ensure that all donations are used by our community.

Alongside this, tutor groups worked together to raise money and donate food items and build hampers for the elderly and vulnerable in our community. In total over 40 food hampers were delivered to Age UK, which was an impressive feat.
