Welcome to the Kingsley Family

When you join Kingsley School, you are joining a very special family. As a part of this family, you will learn new skills, you will learn to give generously of your time and your service to others, you will learn to appreciate what you have, you will learn to connect with your environment and with others, and you will learn to be active in order to make the most of all the extra opportunities here at Kingsley. We are a family that values mindfulness and wellbeing along with academic challenge and curiosity, so that we can all reach our potential to be better global citizens to build a better world for our future.

Boarding at Kingsley

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.

Situated in the UNESCO biosphere in North Devon, Kingsley is set in beautiful grounds with rolling green hills, dramatic coastlines and long white sandy beaches. Kingsley offers bespoke education for every child aged 3 months-18 years. Kingsley is a co-educational, inclusive, independent boarding school, where every child is given the opportunity to be the best they can be.
