Thank you for visiting the Kingsley School Bideford website. I hope you’ll find everything you’re looking for, whether you are already an experienced independent school parent or a first-time buyer.
However, although it will give you a comprehensive description of the school, even the best website cannot quite capture Kingsley’s special atmosphere and strong sense of community.
We provide what we believe is a unique and individualised approach to teaching and learning.
As we all know, not all children are the same, so it follows that not all schools should be the same either. To take just one example, not all schools offer brilliant provision for dyslexic pupils within an outstanding mainstream school. The Grenville Dyslexia Centre here at Kingsley does just that.
That’s the idea running through the Kingsley video, accessible from this Home page: it will show you some of the approaches and activities which make the “Kingsley difference”: I’m sure you’ll enjoy watching it.
I would also warmly invite you to come and visit us, too, and see for yourself the beautiful environment in which our students are so lucky to learn and play. You can have a full tour, talk to me and my colleagues about your child’s education and even arrange a free taster day. Choose any time that suits you – the best way to see a school is on a normal working day.
I look forward to meeting you; meanwhile, enjoy the video and the website. If they don’t answer all your questions, speak to our Registrar Caroline Bailey, who will also be happy to arrange your visit.
