Welcome to Kingstone High School, which together with Kingstone & Thruxton Primary School, forms Kingstone Academy Trust (KAT). It is our aim to prepare all students who attend this school with the qualifications, confidence and social skills that will allow them to access the career path of their choice.
We want our students to become the best versions of themselves that they can be. We also want them to be happy while they study and in their life once they leave us.
It is our aim that the school be a community of pupils, parents and teachers, working together to achieve a very special and positive experience for all involved. We are ambitious for the students of this school and have deep desire for them to be successful in all that they do throughout their lives.
We very much look forward to getting to know you better in the weeks, months and years to come.
Mr Steven Fisher
Kingstone High School, ‘continues to be Good’, according to its latest Ofsted report. Inspectors carried out a Section 8 one day inspection just before Christmas and gave the school a glowing seal of approval.
As well as saying that, ‘the leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection’, inspectors also described Kingstone as, ‘a welcoming school’.
They went on to say that, ‘the school is a calm and happy place,’, where the Headteacher has, created an inclusive and purposeful environment. Inspectors spoke to pupils who ‘spoke positively about being part of the school community and about the support they receive from their teachers.’
Inspectors were very positive about the levels of safeguarding across the school, ‘There is a strong culture of high-quality care and support for pupils in your school, and within this safeguarding is given particular importance.’
The report noted that ‘leaders’ relentless determination to drive up standards,’ and other positive features that were present in the last report and are still evident in the school.
Steven Fisher said, ‘we do know that there are areas highlighted within the report for us to improve on in order to make the school even better. It was reassuring to us and to the inspectors that these were areas we were already working on.’
‘The school has come a long way in the last five years’, he said, ‘we are pleased that we are a popular school with parents and are oversubscribed for places. The next five years will see the school building on a very solid base to become even better.'
