Vision, Values and Ethos

“Going Beyond What Schools Ordinarily Do”

The core principles for The Kingston Academy are: all will be valued, we expect excellence, we will learn from the best and we will constantly strive for improvement.

The vision is to create a school in North Kingston that rises to that challenge and meets the needs of its community, serving it with distinction. The Kingston Academy will be a school in which aspiration knows no bounds, from which outcomes are outstanding and whose reputation is unparalleled.

We believe that intelligence is not fixed, aspirations matter, parents make a difference, that the physical environment impacts on learning and that schools need strong partnerships to succeed.

The Kingston Academy will provide an outstanding educational experience for local children so that:

  • All pupils will enjoy learning, make excellent progress, attain high outcomes and be helped to become confident individuals and responsible citizens.
  • All pupils will benefit from strong leadership, an inclusive ethos and practice, excellent teaching and a broad and balanced curriculum in a local school.
