Head Teacher, Ms Heather Owens, says: “I am extremely proud of the girls’ academic excellence and individual successes. The strength of the partnership between students and staff in over 20 subjects has resulted in our girls being able to pursue ambitious, exciting and diverse destinations. The pursuit of these personal goals is inspiring, demonstrating the Kingsley ‘can-do’ ethos that we value so highly. I look forward to hearing about their continued success in the future.”
