Values and culture
We encourage the individual pursuit of excellence and achieve outstanding academic results. All staff support every child to realise their full potential.
We celebrate the individual strengths and successes of our pupils and equip them with resilience and resourcefulness in order to meet the challenges and opportunities whilst at Kingshott and beyond. We always encourage them to be reflective and responsible in all their learning.
Kingshott School is thriving and is entering a really exciting time where the changes in our curriculum and the investment in facilities to support the delivery of that curriculum are truly coming together to propel the school forward for the next generation
Since 2004, we have embarked on a hugely ambitious and very successful building program. Major improvements have been made to the School’s facilities, including a purpose-built Nursery, Pre-Prep and Middle school.
In November 2015, we opened a multimillion-pound teaching block for the senior part of the school. The Robinson building offers a sizeable, bright and airy Art Room, a dedicated Music Room, Drama Studio, Food Technology Room, Science laboratory, nine teaching classrooms and new changing rooms.
We have most recently opened a multimillion-pound Sports and Drama Hall to ensure that taking part in our varied Games and P.E. curriculum and our exciting performing arts programme, is an even more challenging and engaging experience.

Year on year, Kingshott continues to make major improvements to its facilities. New Astro Turf pitches and greatly improved roadways and parking facilities around the school have been smaller but just as important projects.
New plans are underway to enhance the dining area and introduce a state-of-the-art STEAM learning centre to encourage greater independent thinking in our children.
All of our building projects reaffirm the school’s focus on providing both a broad and academic educational experience that allows pupils whether they are aged 3 or 13, the freedom to give everything a go.
Staff Support and Development
We offer all our staff excellent professional development opportunities and guidance, with a strong CPD programme.
