Kingswood School

A happy, vibrant, and forward-looking school

At Kingswood, we have the highest aspirations for all of our pupils. Within a community which promotes the importance of shared values, we seek to encourage a real enthusiasm for learning and a spirit of enquiry.

Firmly based on Christian principles, Kingswood is a happy, vibrant and forward-looking school. Intellectual achievement is highly valued, whilst the pursuit of excellence in other fields is central to the school's commitment to provide the very best all-round education. At the core of a Kingswood education is our belief that every individual has talents to be discovered and nurtured and that our challenge is to develop these whilst preparing our students for their future beyond school. Please do come and see for yourself what makes Kingswood such a very special place.
