We would like to welcome you all back to a new term and update you on our development.
Firstly, I have to inform you that we will be losing two members of staff at the end of the term. Fiona Macfarlane, who has been at Kingswood House for 14 years, will be leaving to begin her well-earned retirement and Tom Laudy will be leaving us to take up an opportunity as a scuba diving instructor. We thank them for all that they have done for the school and I am sure you will join me in wishing them all the best for the future.
Last term was very successful on all fronts, academic, sporting, dramatic and artistic and I felt I should update you on how Kingswood is progressing.
We have continued to punch above our weight in all areas, winning tournaments, producing a play the West End would have been proud of and achieving amazing results in both pre-tests and scholarships right across a wide variety of schools.
When we enter the senior school world, our ethos will remain the same. My vision is for a school like now, that can and does cater for everyone. I believe we will run our senior school along the lines that we currently run the school: you will have boys who have the ability to get 11 A’s at GCSE working alongside boys who will be aiming to get 5 or so.
We hope eventually to have two classes in each year group, as we do now, working through to Common Entrance and beyond and we will continue to have a Year 8 Head Boy.
I would like a school that will get the very best out of its students and achieve amazing results for boys of all abilities. There will be opportunities for your sons to be stretched beyond even their dreams with small classes and excellent teaching.
Four or five boys are starting the journey with us in September 2016, with more than seven in 2017 and eighteen in 2018. Our senior school will grow and develop so we can accommodate your son, whatever his or your ambition.
This is a very exciting time to be at Kingswood House and I am glad you are a part of it.
With best wishes
