What do we do? We provide character and currency for our students to achieve success. 

How will we succeed? We will differentiate ourselves by creating a healthy organization, making student-centric decisions, and giving students opportunities to develop resilience, perseverance and creativity, and be curious, kind, well-rounded individuals. 

At Kingsthore College, we don’t value what we measure, we measure what we value.   For us, this is team work.
