About Kingsmead School & Sixth Form

‘Practise to Perfect’

Kingsmead is a large, mixed, oversubscribed school – easily accessible from both central London and surrounds – with loyal staff, an established standing in the community and a very strong track record. We are consistently above average in Progress 8 and A Level value added, with high Ebacc entry and a wide range of options at KS4 and KS5. Those outcomes are built on a calm, purposeful and collaborative atmosphere.

Despite the school’s size and standing, the Headteacher was appointed relatively young after experience of leading for a high-performing academy chain and in one of the most successful London boroughs. He has restarted the school culture and approach over the last few years and is determined to push it forward from being in the top 20% nationally to being somewhere where things are achieved others do not think possible.


“Students, including those with special educational needs, make good progress and achieve well in their learning because effective action is taken to address any underachievement. Teaching is good. Lessons include a range of interesting activities, encouraging students to work both individually and in groups. Questioning and regular reviews of learning ensure that students make good progress. Students behave well, attend regularly and are ready and eager to learn.”
