  • Jess

    An all-round achiever who has been a pupil at Kingsley since the age of three. She is musically gifted and a former Kingsley Young Musician of the Year.

    "You can learn to play any instrument you want and because Kingsley is a small school you don’t feel afraid to try new things.

    You get the chance to play in assemblies and concerts even if you are a beginner.

    I don’t think I would be involved in so many musical things outside school if I hadn’t been encouraged to do so by my teachers."

  • Simran

    Joined Kingsley from a state school in Year 7 and excels at Maths and Science.

    "I wanted to come to Kingsley because the GCSE grades are so good in the subjects I want to study.

    I like Maths and Science and I knew that Kingsley would give me the education I want in those subjects.

    I have improved a lot academically. My ability in Maths is much better and I can work things out faster."

  • Esmé

    A Year 4 Prep pupil who has been at the school since she was five years old. She loves playing the violin and is progressing well in her music lessons and exams.

    "The teachers are really nice. They give you time to do your work and don’t get cross if you don’t understand something.

    I am looking forward to learning new things and having new teachers when I go into the other years in Prep.

    Playing the violin is something I really enjoy. I have always liked the sound of it."

  • Poppy

    Joined Kingsley in Year 8, loves working with children and animals. Breeds prize-winning sheep.

    "I have achieved the best I can at Kingsley which has enabled me to get a place at Norland College, my dream higher education destination.

    When I asked if I could bring a sheep and lambs into school for a special assembly the answer was yes!

    Kingsley has made me more confident socially and academically."

  • Chloe

    A student at Kingsley for a year after joining in Year 7 from a local Prep School.

    "My confidence in my work has flown since I joined and that is all because of the teachers, friends and the lovely environment at Kingsley.

    The lessons are amazing and the teachers are really helpful and understanding.

    There are so many opportunities to get into sports teams and there are a range of different clubs that you can attend. I play tennis, which is my favourite sport, badminton and netball and also do swimming and athletics."

  • Ruby

    One of five sisters at Kingsley, currently in Year 5 in Prep School. She enjoys all aspects of school life, especially sport.

    "There are a lot of fun things to do at school and I have a lot of friends and nice teachers who help me with my work.

    I played in a recorder concert and felt scared but when I finished I wanted to do it again. I like being in concerts and shows.

    In DT lessons you create your own things from your own ideas. It makes you feel good."

  • Maaria

    A self-confessed bookworm who is always writing stories for her cousins and wants to be an author. Joined Kingsley in Year 7 from a state school.

    "The school didn’t seem big and scary and everybody was really kind and helpful.

    When I visited Kingsley for the first time the library was one of the things that impressed me the most. It is very quiet and calm and a nice place to be.

    You are never the odd one out and everyone is really friendly. I have made lots of friends."

  • Vicky

    Joined Kingsley in Year 4 and became Head Girl. A talented geographer, she has ambitions to work as a diplomat after studying geography at Durham University.

    "Becoming Head Girl and a member of the Sixth Form Leadership Team made me proud to be a part of what I looked up to when I started at Kingsley.

    The school has given me confidence in myself and I don’t feel daunted about moving on to university. Kingsley has nurtured and prepared me for the next stage of my education.

    All the students are accepted for who they are. Kingsley is a family."

Welcome to Kingsley


Experts in providing a continuous education for girls from the age of 3 to 18. Boys welcome in Prep from 3 to 7 years old.
 headteacher

A very warm welcome to The Kingsley School. For 129 years this School has had an excellent reputation for high academic standards and first-class pastoral care. What sets Kingsley apart from other schools is its distinctive family ethos and friendly atmosphere. We are immensely proud of the fact that everyone who visits us remarks on the happy staff student relationships and the sense of community this fosters.

At Kingsley, girls have a positive and purposeful approach to learning. The atmosphere here is unique; enthusiastic and approachable teachers inspire girls to learn; behaviour is excellent and girls are challenged and supported according to individual need. Where practical, we aim to personalise the curriculum so that girls can reach their potential whatever their gifts and talents.

In the Preparatory School, Kingsley girls (and boys) progress in a warm, safe environment in small classes to develop socially and achieve their very best academically. Most of the girls continue into Senior School and later, become sixth form students, thus maximising the benefits of Kingsley as the only school in Warwickshire offering continuous education for girls from 3 to 18 years old.

Academically, girls are encouraged to have high aspirations. They develop a strong sense of belonging as they are expected to contribute to school life and participate in a wide range of enrichment opportunities. Girls leave Kingsley as confident, well-mannered, well-rounded and well-qualified young women ready to face the challenges of the adult world. Most of them continue their studies at the university of their choice.

Girls succeed and are happy here. Kingsley is a school where success is celebrated and, whether this is academic, sporting, creative or through performance, girls encourage each other and take pleasure in each other’s achievements. Ours is a warm and welcoming community. At Kingsley, girls are individuals and everyone is valued. In the words of one of our students, ‘at Kingsley you are a name not a number.’

 

I extend an invitation to you to come and see for yourself!

Heather Owens

Headteacher

Admissions

We know that choosing the right school is an important and sometimes difficult decision and we urge all parents and girls to visit Kingsley and find out all about us. Talking to the Headteacher, staff and girls, taking part in taster activities, touring the school and observing lessons will give you a chance to see what makes us tick and why we are such a happy and successful school.

The Preparatory School offers a rich, vibrant and extensive curriculum which adheres to and extends the Early Years and National Curriculum for bright and curious children. Pupils are taught in classes with a low pupil-teacher ratio, where individual needs can be met and where learning is fun. We are proud of the warm, caring environment which enables pupils to have confidence in themselves while supporting each other in a secure, close-knit community.

The Senior School aims to provide a broad, balanced and stimulating academic experience. The curriculum at Kingsley is constructed to provide girls with a very sound grasp of literacy and numeracy skills as well as to encourage creativity, intellectual curiosity and independence.

The Sixth Form at Kingsley combines the desire for academic success with the creation of confident, self-motivated and independent young women. It provides a wide range of opportunities for all students - whatever their interests, aptitudes and abilities - enabling girls to achieve places at their higher education destinations of choice.
