Joanne Risley shares her out of this world work with children and families in the Kingsmead Sculpture Park

The Cave Gallery's first show 'Hunker' will launch Easter 2021

We are delighted to welcome sculptor Joanne Risley MA, MAFA, to exhibit her work on our school grounds. Joanne has sited two large works, Astropod and Space Flower on the meadow area in front of the school hall.

Children at Kingsmead have been invited, with students and pupils across the local area, to contribute their work to an online gallery to share their work, The Cave. As a website based platform, this is safe for the youngest children to share their work alongside older students. The difference between The Cave and schools' and colleges' art lessons and clubs is that while suggestions and ideas are offered, young people are invited to submit work in any media, of their choice. The first exhibition, Easter 2021, is called Hunker and invites responses to our very different experiences of hunkering down over lockdown.

Our local community and beyond

Northwich is a great place to live, situated in a biodiverse area of Cheshire there are walks around the Marshall's Arm (on our doorstep), around Northwich Woodlands, Marbury Park and Anderton. It is also close to three very different cities: the ancient city of Chester; Liverpool with its magnificent historic buildings and waterfront and Manchester, rich in industrial heritage.

We made work for the PC information boards at two of the Kingsmead ponds, celebrating biodiversity at our feet.

Many of our pupils go on to study at SJD before moving on to university, apprenticeships or or work. They make an outstanding contribution in their academic studies as well as their extra-curricular activities.


The New Wittonian is the official newspaper of SJD and some ex-pupils make an appearance. SJD students can be found here in school where they make a positive contribution as reading mentors, leading drama and Science workshops and even giving the occasional music recital! Sir John Deane's Sixth Form College run a range of activities for children, including holiday activity clubs.

Most of our children transfer in year 7 to The County High School, Leftwich. Leftwichers return each Summer to help with Sports Day and the High School hosts a number of sport competitions for the Vale Royal School Sports Partnership. We also enjoy a biannual concert with the High School where musicians at Kingsmead meet the County High School Leftwich Band and many of our old musicians.
