Welcome to Kingdown School. Whether you are a current or future member of our school community, I hope that our website gives you a real flavour of our wonderful school, and provides you with a valuable insight into the life and work of our students.
Believe, Aspire, Achieve
The school’s mission statement is summarised into three words – Believe, Aspire, Achieve:
- For our students to believe in themselves, in their own talents and abilities, and in their power to make a difference
- For our students to aspire to be the best they can be
- For our students to achieve exceptional outcomes, opening doors to their future post-16 or post-18
We place the needs of our students at the centre of our thinking – whether this be through our curriculum offer, through the wealth of extra-curricular activities on offer through the school, via the caring and effective pastoral system, or through the quality of teaching and learning which we offer each day.
We constantly reflect upon our practice, systems and procedures, always striving to improve our offer to our students.
Our expectations of students’ uniform, behaviour and attitudes towards others are very high; we also expect our students to achieve great outcomes. In return, we offer great support and challenge to enable our students to succeed.
