It was first known as Leamington High School, but was renamed as The Kingsley School in 1949 in recognition of its founder.
Values and vision
The Kingsley School places great emphasis on promoting a caring ethos and a friendly atmosphere. The school encourages pupils to complete their school careers as well-rounded individuals with excellent results, a positive attitude and a sense of community. The Kingsley School was rated excellent in its last inspection for pastoral care. It also runs a programme of personal, social, health and citizenship education (PSHCE), which covers themes such as personal relationships and social awareness.
“All pupils, including those with SEND and those in EYFS, make very good progress compared with those of similar abilities. Their standards in the basic skills of literacy and numeracy are excellent. Pupils speak with confidence and clarity. They develop reasoning and thinking skills which they bring to bear in their studies, approaching problem-solving tasks with confidence.”
