At The Kingston Academy we are serious about sport. We are committed to engaging all pupils in sport and developing an appreciation of the physical and mental rewards of sporting activity. We have been awarded the School Games Mark Gold Medal in recognition of our extensive competitive sports offering, both within TKA and with other schools, and of the leadership opportunities students are given with PE and sport.
We take great pride in our extensive fixture list against local schools, which not only fosters healthy competition but also builds strong bonds within our school community. The key sports we play competitively are football, rugby, basketball, cricket, netball, athletics and trampolining.
Pupils at The Kingston Academy have access to a range of excellent sporting facilities including:
We also make the most of our proximity to the River Thames with our own Dragon boat and numerous paddle boards.
