About Us

Headteacher's Welcome

A very warm welcome to The Kingsley School. For 133 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, pupils 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 pupils 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!
