Class of 2020

Our Class of 2020 are truly special, and sadly have been hit particularly hard by the effects of the pandemic, with the loss of their rite of passage through exams, leaving ceremonies and prom. Nonetheless, our pride in their achievements and conduct remains undimmed, and on behalf of everyone at Northern Education Trust Kirk Balk Academy, we would like to offer our congratulations to Year 11 and wish them the very best for their future.

OMG, where do I begin. I absolutely LOVED my 5 years at KBA. The teachers, amazing. The students, the best. Thank you all so much for making me feel so welcome every day walking down the boulevard. I will remember these memories forever.

I’m very upset about leaving this amazing school so early making amazing friends such as Blake who has been my best buddy all through my time here! I also want to thank the amazing teachers and how they do their jobs better than anyone in the world. I’ve had so much fun and can’t thank everyone who works there enough for making it extremely enjoyable through my time here

Would like to thank certain individuals for the amount of help you gave me during the last 5 years, I have made a great group of friends and I most certainly won't forget any of you! I have had a great time getting to know you all individually you have all been brilliant friends. I would also like to thank all of my teachers for the amount of help you have given me during my time at Kirkbalk although it has been a short amount of time together you all made my time at school amazing. It's a shame it had to end like this I wish you all the best in the future!! CLASS OF 2020!! :):):)
