Meet the Headmaster

"We are blessed indeed that Kingswood School sits on a beautiful 200-acre site looking down on the city of Bath below. The World Heritage City of Bath with its magnificent architecture, fine museums and galleries, vibrant musical and cultural life and sporting pedigree, serves as a constant reminder that education is about so much more than a good set of exam results, as important as these are.

We also love the fact that our pupils get to explore the surrounding Somerset and Wiltshire countryside, walking its meadows, moorlands and coastline with friends from all over the world. Our pupils learn as much outside the classroom as they do within it, and I can think of no more inspiring and secure place for our children to grow, to reflect on their experiences, and to leave us ready to influence the world.

Kingswood is a place where academic excellence is one important part of our commitment to offer a broad and balanced education to every pupil. Firmly based on the Christian principles of our founder, John Wesley, we are called to develop confident, compassionate, enthusiastic young people who enjoy working with others and are pre-eminently prepared to lead meaningful lives. As a busy boarding and day school we offer a staggering range of co-curricular opportunities, celebrating both cultural and sporting achievement.

There is much which makes Kingswood distinctive, yet it is perhaps the constructive, open and trusting relationships between people which are most commented upon, forged by talented teachers who are dedicated to guiding each pupil on this leg of their journey. We also aspire to be an organisation that learns, in self-critical pursuit of our goal to achieve excellence in all areas of school life. I hope that my words help give you a sense of our school, our vision and values. Please follow our story online. Most of all, please come and visit us where you will be warmly welcomed."
