Headmaster’s Welcome

Welcome to Kingswood House, where we have long enjoyed an outstanding reputation as a leading preparatory school for boys. Our new senior department opened in September 2016, thereby extending our exceptional academic and pastoral provision through to GCSE. We offer a genuine all-round education, underpinned by exciting curricular and co-curricular opportunities, with a strong emphasis on character development and preparation for life beyond the school gate.

 

The KHS Way

At Kingswood House, there is a philosophy of inclusivity, tolerance and respect. All boys are encouraged to participate in every aspect of school life and this provides a wonderful platform for them to grow in resilience and self-esteem. A rich variety of opportunities, both inside and outside the classroom, engenders an avid natural curiosity and propagates a willingness to try new things.

I work extremely closely with a range of prestigious senior schools and our Year 8 leavers achieve outstanding Common Entrance results, as well as an enviable number of scholarships, each year. With the advent of our own senior department, parents are able to consider future schools carefully – safe in the knowledge that Kingswood House already offers an excellent pathway for the boys through to GCSE.

We are also developing KHS for the future and have recently built an impressive Lower Prep School and a Humanities Department. A new Senior School, boasting customised teaching accommodation, is planned to open in September 2018.

This website captures the very essence of KHS but please do come and see us for yourself; the warmth and friendliness of our school community is best experienced first hand. You can also register for the next Open Morning or book an individual appointment to meet with me and tour the school.

I look forward to welcoming you to Kingswood House.
