What The Good Schools Guide says..
A top-notch school – regularly vies with neighbouring Latchmere for unofficial 'best in borough' award. Sets high standards, has high expectations and unsurprisingly attracts high numbers of the white middle classes who abound in this area. A real community school – just be aware that the community is North Kingston, swarming with...

What The Good Schools Guide says
Since April 2015, Adam Scott, previously deputy head, who has been at the school for over 15 years.
Very popular, very oversubscribed, move very close. Usual local authority admissions criteria apply, which essentially means siblings and distance. Obviously catchment varies, but always tight - anecdotally an 800m radius most recently. Due to population bulge, Kingston has had a problem with reception place numbers and the school is expanding. Worth staying on the waiting list as there is a trickle of mobility in the area and odd spaces do come up.
Special Education Needs
We aim to provide sufficient and appropriate support to pupils who have been identified as having special needs to ensure they make good appropriate progress in their learning. Children are taught as part of the mainstream classes although they may qualify for 1:1 support or additional time from our Taeching Assistants. We do not have a special unit; our SENCO is also our inclusion manager and is well qualified to provide advice and training to teachers and support staff. She also provides outreach support for other schools in the borough who have pupils with autism as part of our Enhanced Specialist Teaching Arrangement with the LA. There is a strong commitment of all staff to SEN/inclusion with continuous training including: ASD, Speech and Language, MCD, basic Makaton. We have good liaison with special schools and external specialists. In addition we have an excellent SEN team of SENCO and TAs /LSAs, who have all attended speech and language course and various others. 09-09
