About The Kingsway School

The Kingsway School is a co-educational, non-denominational secondary school in Stockport, Greater Manchester. It is a specialist school in mathematics, computing, science and training. At its most recent inspection, there were 1,468 students enrolled, aged 11-16. 

There are six houses at The Kingsway School, named for famous figures in British history: Turing, Lowry, Gaskell, Pankhurst, Whitworth and Rylands. The secondary school's motto translates from Latin as "turning potential into reality". The school is accessible via the M56 and M60 motorways and is a five-minute walk from a train station.

A number of our staff benefit from an onsite private nursery provision provided by Busy Bees. This is based within the school grounds on the Broadway Campus.

Ofsted report

“Where learning is very rapid as the result of outstanding teaching, lessons move along at a fast pace with high levels of challenge that really make students think deeply. Students relish the challenging work and tackle problems with real determination. They enjoy working on their own and finding things out for themselves, only relying on the teacher to steer them in the right direction when necessary.”
