Other features

All-through school (for example 3-18 years). - An all-through school covers junior and senior education. It may start at 3 or 4, or later, and continue through to 16 or 18. Some all-through schools set exams at 11 or 13 that pupils must pass to move on.

Please note: Independent schools frequently offer IGCSEs or other qualifications alongside or as an alternative to GCSE. The DfE does not record performance data for these exams so independent school GCSE data is frequently misleading; parents should check the results with the schools.

Special Education Needs

As a non-selective school, Kingsmead offers an education for children of all abilities. The Learning Development Unit (LDU) occupies a delightful cottage on the school campus where pupils with a range of challenges are encouraged and supported to achieve their maximum potential. The unit is equipped to support children with dyslexia, dyscalculia, DCD, (dyspraxia), attention deficit disorders, specific language impairment, speech difficulties and autistic spectrum disorder. We seek within the unit to nurture pupils in a safe, non-threatening and non-discriminatory environment where their needs and difficulties are understood and where their individuality and integrity are respected. As with all pupils, Kingsmead’s aim is to enable them to develop into young people who can meet the complex demands of independent adult life. The highly experienced staff make learning a pleasurable challenge as they work to develop each pupil’s ability to use language effectively and to develop their thinking skills. The emphasis within the department is on individual teaching by highly experienced teachers. However if it is felt appropriate, at KS3 pupils will take LDU small-group lessons, instead of being taught a modern foreign language.
