Welcome to Kingsley School Bideford.
As you browse our website, I hope you’ll get a sense of the enormous range of activities, both inside the classrooms and throughout the 25 acres of beautiful woodland and sports fields that are part of the school. You’ll be impressed by our consistently outstanding academic performance at GCSE and A-level. [I’m particularly proud of the way our students regularly outperform their former schools’ predictions of their potential.] Our purpose-designed theatre stages a series of extremely high standard musical and drama productions throughout the year. Our judo squad enjoys a unique training partnership with the internationally renowned Team Bath; our gymnasts have amassed cupboards full of regional and national awards. Our Duke of Edinburgh Awards teams have reached record numbers. And our students’ charity projects grow more ambitious – and occasionally more eccentric – by the year. What links all these achievements and activities – and what I truly believe sets Kingsley apart from other excellent schools in North Devon– is our uncompromising focus on the individual child. Each and every one of our pupils is important to us – and I promise this is not just something to which we pay mere lip service. We treat every individual with understanding, dignity and respect. We do everything in our power to discover, nurture and celebrate their talents and achievements. If that sounds like the kind of school that you want for your child, please call and arrange a visit. I look forward to meeting you.
