Welcome to Kingswood House, a leading co-educational school up to GCSE. We offer an 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, befitting of the 21st century.
The KHS Way
At Kingswood House, there is a philosophy of inclusivity, tolerance and respect. All pupils 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. 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.

Profile of the Headmaster
As an ex-pupil, a current parent and someone who has been associated with the school as a teacher for over twenty years, Liam knows the school inside out. He has been part of the Senior Leadership Team for the last ten years helping to oversee a successful evolution of the school to extend its provision up to GCSE, as well as a move to co-education.
Liam is married to Jana, who runs a very successful childcare business, she is equally as passionate about learning styles and strives to follow an approach that makes it all about the individual from a very young age. Liam and Jana have a large family comprising five children: Finnan and Bella are both sixteen and looking forward to sixth form next year, Zac and Ellie are fourteen and Isla is ten. Family time is important to the Clarkes with weekends often spent supporting their children at their many sporting commitments in a string of locations.
Liam himself is interested in all sports, especially football and golf. He has a season ticket at Chelsea and plays golf at Tyrells Wood Golf Club with a handicap of 6.8.
