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.
At Kingstone High School we take great pride in the facilities that we offer our students. Our main school building was built in the 1960’s and later additions have been placed on the site to meet the expanding needs of the students: we have a purpose built science block, and Arts and DT blocks. Our classrooms are large and light and spacious. Classrooms are well equipped with interactive whiteboards, linked to high quality learning resources. We have four fully furnished computer suites, allowing all students to gain regular computer access.
Our Performance Hall has tiered seating for hundreds and has staged many high quality school productions. The Art and Music block has an extensive range of facilities including Music room, and four practice rooms. There are 2 large art rooms – a general purpose art room with a printing press and another with the kiln and pottery equipment and one computer. Both rooms have interactive whiteboards printers. The rooms are located closely together and have a small ICT suite attached. There are 2 storage areas for resources.
The Sports Hall offers a high quality and spacious venue suitable for all sporting needs. It has four Basketball courts, and is also marked out for Badminton, Netball, Tennis and Five a side Football. We offer the largest school site in Herefordshire and in our extensive grounds, we have the full range of sports facilities and pitches are maintained to high standard throughout the season, and orchards, meadows and gardens. We also have an outdoor classroom and a specialist building suitable for a range of practical studies.
The HUB, our Intervention Centre, comprises of a large learning space, adjoining kitchen area, computer areas and several individual meeting rooms, and offers a fresh, modern and hi-tech area that is widely used by students and staff. Students use this area for individual or small group mentoring as well as counselling should they require it.
We are an open door school and we very much look forward to getting to know you better in the weeks, months and years to come.
