Welcome from the principal

Alastair McKenzie

Welcome to all of our parents and students, both old and new, as we head into another year filled with drive and purpose.

We are pleased to welcome a number of new teachers and support staff into our community. I have no doubt that they will continue to support our students both academically and personally. We were delighted that our teaching has been recognised nationally in the Secondary Teacher of the Year category and that our culture and drive for constant improvement was named in the House of Commons this year.

Our curriculum remains academically focused, with new GCSE courses now embedded in almost all subjects. Whilst challenging, they offer the rigour and opportunities for personal growth that are wanted by students, parents and teachers alike.

Our daily timetable with longer lessons provides us with the chance to increase the depth of our studies and a greater opportunity for practical work to sit alongside academic focus. They have been both popular and highly successful at improving the progress and outcomes of students throughout the school.

Our excellence awards, in partnership with the University of Surrey continue as we focus on rewarding students for reaching new heights right across the curriculum. These awards are now embedded in our culture and it is wonderful to see the calibre of work being produced by our young people. It really does demonstrate just how far every individual can go with hard work, resilience and drive.

We continue with our award winning alliance with the University of Surrey and the Royal Grammar School. Having seen the calendar for the year ahead, I am excited about the opportunities that are available to our students.

Kings is an innovative and inspirational place to study and for children to thrive. We look forward to welcoming you.

Mr McKenzie
