Former Crestwood Student Opens Salon

Former Crestwood student, Katie Gorst, came back to visit earlier this month to share her wonderful experiences with her former teachers.

Katie is now a fully qualified, Beauty Therapist, and is about to open her first Beauty Salon…at the age of 19!

Katie left Crestwood in July 2015 school, with excellent GCSE results, to start her training in Beauty Therapy, Katie studied for 3 years before becoming level 3 qualified in 2018. Whilst studying Katie gained as much experience as possible in her chosen field, in 2017 she was employed by a local salon where she honed her skills in a live environment.

Katie’s college were so impressed with her progress they entered her into a competition. Incredibly Katie performed exceptionally, finishing runner up in a talented field from 27 colleges across the UK and earning a job at a top Leicestershire spa, Ragdale Hall!

This meant at the age of 18 Katie moved from her family home to live and work by herself in Leicester, a very mature decision that enabled her to further her skill base and gain invaluable experience.

Katie launched her own business in 2017, working from home or at clients houses, her first and most loyal customers, being her Mum and sister, Katie now serves over 100 people in the local community.

The success of Katie’s Beauty Bar has encouraged Katie to lease her first business property and launch her very own salon.

Katie initially contacted the school with an offer to sponsor this years Prom Queen Award at the school Prom in June. Headteacher, Mrs Sutton, invited Katie in for a coffee and a catch up.

Mrs Sutton said “I was so pleased to hear how well Katie was doing and intrigued to hear about her experiences in the last few years. Katie was a fantastic Crestwood student and I have no doubt she will be successful with her new venture. It is great to know that a former student of ours is becoming a business owner and will be contributing in many ways to the local community”

Katie’s Beauty Bar salon opens on Saturday 30th March and is located in Salon 18, 18 Lawnswood Road, Wordsley. If you would like more information head over to Katie’s Beauty Bar Facebook Page

Good luck for your launch Katie, look forward to seeing you again soon!

Since beginning another year of girl’s football here at Crestwood, the number of girls taking part within extra-curricular football has grown immensely. The girls have the opportunity to train every Tuesday and Thursday after school in order to improve their knowledge and skills.

Over the last few months our year 7 girl’s football team have taken the local area by storm with their talent. On the 12th of December we travelled to The Dormston School to compete in the first round of the ESFA 5 a side tournament. The girls slotted home 14 goals and conceded 0. On the 19th of December we travelled to The Dormston School to compete in the second round of the ESFA 5 a side tournament and the girls scored a further 14 goals and conceded 0, securing our first place position. Pretty impressive if I say so myself!

Not only did the girls dominate the tournament they secured a place at The West Midland English Schools Football Association indoor finals!! The competition was held at the Play Football Centre in Birmingham on Monday 4th February 2019. The team faced a number of schools across the region with some incredible talent on display. The girls battled through to the semi final and finished 3rd overall which is an incredible achievement.

Well done to Miss Ellis and the girls!
