An academically purposeful school, our 21st century curriculum prepares our students for the changing world around them. Small class sizes ensure that each individual is nurtured, challenged and inspired to become the best possible version of themselves.
Games & the Arts
Our extensive co-curricular programme, so-named because of the vital role it plays in complementing the academic curriculum, is at the heart of life at KPS. Partnering with local providers for our sport and Games provision, pupils have access to activities such as netball, football, swimming, rock climbing and ice skating, while our state-of-the art theatre offers exceptional facilities for drama and the arts.
We firmly believe that young people learn best when they feel happy, safe and respected, and outstanding pastoral care is at the heart of what we do. Experienced tutors play a key role, meeting students daily in small groups in the Lower School, and on a one-to-one basis in the Sixth Form. Our core values of kindness, moral integrity, responsibility and a sense of service underpin our House System which is integral to ensuring student wellbeing, and a strong sense of community.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy
New Headmaster, Mr Middleton, is passionate about enabling young people to fulfil their potential. This is achieved, in part, by building warm relationships between students, parents, and staff. We pride ourselves on offering a values-driven and intellectually stimulating environment where students not only achieve academic success, but develop as balanced, resilient adults.
Located adjacent to the tranquil spaces of Hyde Park, KPS offers an exceptional education in the heart of cosmopolitan central London. With outstanding boarding for students aged 14+, our split site allows us to deliver teaching focused on students’ individual academic and pastoral needs. KPS students are resilient, motivated individuals who share our core values and a thirst for learning.
