Facilities

The Kingston Academy is located in North Kingston, close to the River Thames and Richmond Park.  In September 2019 we took possession of our state-of-the-art new premises, a beautiful new building with a huge range of facilities including:

  • full sized, fully equipped sports hall and dance studio
  • lecture theatre
  • dining atrium
  • numerous modern science laboratories

The school also occupies entirely renovated historic building, built around a quadrangle, which originally housed the Tiffin Girls School.

Our Trust Partners

A further strength of The Kingston Academy is the unrivalled access our pupils have to the extensive academic facilities our Trust partners have pledged. Kingston University libraries, the Rose Theatre, the University sports grounds, Kingston College’s Creative Industries Centre, Sports Academies and extensive teaching and lecturing bodies from both organisations are just some examples of this commitment. This is a school that views its facilities as reaching far beyond the resources we access both onsite and within our community. The partnerships we have, and will continue to forge in business and enterprise, will provide our learning community with outstanding facilities and access locally to first rate intellectual and social capital. It is this approach that will make The Kingston Academy experience the destination for excellence.

We are committed to our pupils being healthy, happy and active participants in school life. We will encourage all pupils through the local partnerships we have established to engage in any number of the sports opportunities available which will include football, rugby, hockey, athletics, cricket, golf and tennis as well as some less traditional activities such as rowing, sailing, fencing and cycling. In addition our facilities will promote and facilitate contemporary lifelong wellbeing activities for our pupils and wider community such as Pilates, Yoga, Dance, Badminton as well as access to a fully equipped fitness studio.
