Head's Welcome

I am extremely privileged to be leading Kingsmead.

We strive to live our core values of Respect, Determination, Care and Responsibility.  Our educational philosophy is simple and uncompromising. We believe that challenging students to achieve academic results beyond their targets is vital in ensuring that they aim high in life. We know that students strive and learn in an environment where they feel safe and nurtured. All students have potential to be discovered and developed and it is our duty as teachers to help them make full use of their talents and abilities. We believe that all skills and talents should be recognised and celebrated within and beyond our curriculum. We strive for quality, set high standards and have high expectations. We believe this is the key to the outstanding achievements of our students in so many fields in recent years - high expectations and a commitment to give of their best and get involved in the life of the school

My expectations of the staff at Kingsmead are equally uncompromising, Staff, irrespective of their role, lead by example and act as positive role models for our students. We are determined to deliver the highest quality teaching and ensure the needs of all our students are met effectively.

We are confident you will find that Kingsmead is a welcoming school where students work happily and well in a supportive, secure and purposeful environment.
