Academic Excellence

academic excellence

Academic care at The Kingsley School is as outstanding as the pastoral care for which we are well known.

Kingsley accepts bright girls who are full of potential, keen to learn and who want to succeed. Many students achieve better in a small, caring environment where every girl is treated as an individual. At Kingsley girls are names not numbers.

Girls achieve their potential and in many cases exceed their own expectations. Staff know girls well so are able to tailor teaching techniques and personalise learning to encourage self-belief.

The many extracurricular opportunities on offer at Kingsley boost confidence and girls thrive during their time at the school, which has a positive effect on academic success. In a small school more girls get more opportunities and our policy is to have an inclusive approach to all activities.

Kingsley’s motto “Esse Quam Videri” – be what you seem to be or be true to yourself – is more than three motivational words in Latin. It captures the ethos at Kingsley which encourages, supports and enables girls to achieve their academic best in as stress-free an environment as is possible and where learning is fun and fulfilling.

Kingsley’s supportive environment and the girls' strong work ethic has resulted in this outstanding performance.
