It is a pleasure to welcome you to Kingsmead. I am proud to be the Head of an inspirational school with excellent staff.
At Kingsmead we understand that each child is unique: we strive to unlock the potential every person has no matter what role they hold within our school.
We do do this by removing any barriers to success, recruiting the best staff and challenging them to be outstanding in their day-to-day practice.
We demand the highest commitment from teachers, governors and students. We do this for our students, parents and local community and believe that our values of resilience, innovation, mindfulness and employability will help us to reach this goal.
Kingsmead is a school for taking chances, it is a school to excel in, it is a school that will always challenge you to try harder, to do better, to be honest with yourself and proud of what you achieve.
I hope that sharing our mission statement gives you a flavour of our school. Please feel free to browse our website to help you to find out more about our happy, friendly and successful school. If however you would like to find more, or indeed arrange a visit to see us, please contact Mrs Debbie Derry (the Head's PA).

Welcome to KS5
Our 2018 results continue to demonstrate the quality of teaching, guidance and support our students receive. 100% of students passed, 50% of students gained A*-B and 82% of students gained A*-C.
Our team love the opportunity to further skill young adults to gain top qualifications and give them chance to broaden their horizons. We have developed a strong reputation for delivering high grades in academic subjects including Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Further Mathematics and Geography.
We are an established and effective team who leave nothing to chance in helping students to achieve what they can. Academic rigour and effective feedback allows students to identify misconceptions and deepen their understanding. We treat our Sixth Form as learners and we are a friendly, supportive and ambitious group. If you wish to join our Sixth Form you still can before our September start. Please contact Mr Cavanagh: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We recognise how every students is different as is their aims. We shape our curriculum and support around them and that is why we are so good at what we do.
Our cohort of students are mixed and made up of students from a number of different schools. If you are interested and want to apply to Kingsmead please click here.
