Weekend fun for our boarders


The aim of our Boarding Houses is simply to be the best home away from home, a place our boarders enjoy returning to, a place of fun and companionship, to share and celebrate the good things in their lives as well as a source of support, advice and guidance. Our lively boarding community lies at the heart of Kingsley School.  British and international students live and socialise together, sharing all aspects of school and Boarding House life. We are proud that our boarders leave Kingsley School confident in their ability to communicate with those from different cultures and backgrounds and to thrive in an increasingly multicultural world.

The Headteacher’s Welcome

Here at Kingsley School we do everything in our power to discover, nurture and celebrate the talents and achievements of each of our pupils. 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 are a vibrant, friendly, inclusive family school that is founded on Christian principles.

We are very proud of our teaching and learning and the excellent progress that our pupils make; many of our pupils regularly outperform their former schools’ predictions of their academic potential. Our teaching staff are talented and fully committed to helping each pupil achieve the very best that they are capable of and there is a real buzz about learning.

We are situated on a 25-acre site in a beautiful part of North Devon and we are minutes from the stunning coastline and a short journey from the beautiful countryside of Exmoor and Dartmoor. We have a thriving Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme which is very popular with our pupils and we have a huge range of extra-curricular activities including surfing, handball, hockey, rugby, football, film-making, gymnastics and judo. Our purpose-designed theatre stages a series of extremely high standard musical and drama productions throughout the year.

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.
