About the School

Kingswood School is situated on a magnificent 120-acre site in Lansdown, Bath, and offers an inclusive boarding and day community that is free of pretension and balances academic rigour, strength in the arts and sport, traditional values and outstanding pastoral care with a forward-thinking, can-do approach.

Both the Prep School (nine months - 11 years) and the Senior School (11 - 18 years) offer a broad, holistic education, in which pupils are encouraged to develop self-assurance and high levels of personal motivation. In this environment, pupils achieve astonishing successes as they constantly progress well beyond their natural potential.

Academic results at Kingswood are consistently excellent.

The School was rated as excellent in every category in its latest Independent School Inspectorate (ISI) inspection. Among the categories praised strongly by the inspection team were teaching and learning, pastoral care, extra-curricular provision, boarding and the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils.


Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.

John Wesley
