We are one of the leading Study Centre providers in the area focusing on providing for the needs of each child. We have had a Study Centre for many years with specialist tutors and Speech and Language therapists and an Occupational Therapist to help meet specific learning difficulties and give appropriate support. Our Study Centre specialists work closely with classroom staff and parents to provide 1:1 or small group tuition. We also provide occupational therapy to support handwriting and co-ordination difficulties.
Emotional Literacy Support
The role of an ELSA offers an additional pastoral safeguard which demonstrably shows our boys’ well-being and mental health to be a major, collective priority for us all.
Our ELSA is Mrs Michelle Johns, who is a specialist teaching assistant with a wealth of experience of working with children. ELSAs are trained and regularly supervised by the Educational Psychologists in your Local education authority. An ELSA is a warm and caring person who wants to help your child feel happy in school and to reach their potential educationally. Their aim is to remove the barriers to learning and to have happy children in school and at home. In the first instance, referrals to Mrs Johns are made via the form teacher.
Parents’ Evenings are held in the Autumn and Spring terms to discuss progress with the tutors and therapists and our Study Centre staff hold a variety of workshops for parents and their children to attend with topics such as memory or study skills.

Provision for Gifted Children
The remit of the AbCo is to encourage gifted children and to extend their horizons. Each term a programme of extension and enrichment activities offers a diversity of experience. Pupils are encouraged to air their views on the development of their own education, to build on their strengths and to develop areas in which they have an interest. KHS is also an established member of The National Association of Gifted Children.
May 2017 CReSTeD Report
“Kingswood House School provides in-class support and individual tuition within the centrally located Study Centre. The staff hold a wealth of specialist, nationally recognised, qualifications. The ethos of the school is one in which each pupil is valued for what they can contribute and achieve. The site is well organised with exceptionally well-designed buildings and play areas. It is a forward-looking establishment and is currently carefully considering the expansion of provision for the older pupils.”
