Due to the current pandemic, we are not providing school tours at this time. We will be making materials available online from the 8th October to introduce prospective parents and their children to the school. However, we will not be holding an open day in school this term.

Admissions Update:

The Kingston Academy Year 7 Admissions Arrangements for Entry in September 2020 and September 2021

Due to the higher numbers of children transferring from local North Kingston primary schools in September 2020 and September 2021, Kingston Educational Trust has agreed to provide an additional 30 places in Year 7 for each of these intakes. 

This will temporarily increase the Published Admission Number for The Kingston Academy from 180 to 210.
