What the school says...
Kingsley School warmly welcomes parents seeking a good all-round education and lots of opportunities for their children. We offer free “taster” days when prospective pupils can experience school life. The School offers a full academic programme to suit the needs of individual pupils, and there is an extra-curricular programme spanning many different activities.

We pride ourselves on encouraging pupils to thrive in our friendly, homely atmosphere. ...Read more
