What says..

If achieving top grades is your priority for your kids, then you have very little to fret about at Seven Kings. Despite its very average intake, Seven Kings seems to sail effortlessly to the top of the league tables. Mutual respect is also more than a hollow phrase, with students allowed in their classroom at all times, including break (‘it’s their school, so their classroom') and students overwhelmingly report that they feel valued by teachers. It’s a school that manages…

What the school says...

Seven Kings School is an all through comprehensive school in the London Borough of Redbridge with a recently opened Reception year. We are a Teaching School providing exciting opportunities for staff development which is at the heart of our continuing success, a National Support School committed to supporting schools in raising standards and are committed to educational innovation.

The high school is a successful 11-18 mixed, multi-cultural comprehensive school with a strong local and national reputation. We provide a high quality education to local children, regardless of their ability. There are approximately 1500 students on roll, 500 of these in our dynamic Sixth Form, where in 2015 we proudly sent 7 students to Oxbridge. The school is always oversubscribed and enjoys strong support from parents and governors. We are a ‘harmonious school’ with an excellent learning environment.

Examination results are consistently high and were once again excellent in 2015; GCSE (84% 5A*-C, 73% 5A*-C including English and Maths) A-level (86% A* - C).

In our last OFSTED inspection we were judged to be outstanding across all categories. In particular, inspectors praised our remarkable students and the positive, harmonious atmosphere. This is a school where students want to learn and relationships are excellent. We are proud to run a successful scheme to integrate students with physical disabilities into mainstream education. Our Sixth Form brings together outstanding learners from across East London (50% of our Sixth Form) to join our own students and is an exciting place to study.

Seven Kings is a vibrant and fulfilling place to work with excellent opportunities for personal and professional development. We are proud of our induction and support programmes for all teaching staff and our high quality continuing professional development opportunities. The school is regularly involved in local and national initiatives, all of which offer opportunities to our staff to enhance their professional development and develop their career at whatever stage.
