Our aim is to provide a rich and broad education to all students whatever their specialism, pursuing excellence in all areas whether examinable or not.
The basis of the timetable is six taught hours per day plus the extra-curricular programme which includes academic, non-academic and sports-based clubs.
Games & The Arts
Although academic rigour and excellent attainment is at the centre of our school, our students are highly creative, with a reputation for excellence in music and the performing, design and visual arts.
Our dynamic PE Department ensures success at both regional and national level across rowing, athletics, tennis, table tennis, cross country and netball. We value the importance of inclusivity, opportunity and choice to ensure participation is maximised across all ability levels.
We aim to develop the feeling of a family and social hub giving emotional support and security to all students and employees. Each student receives individual attention both educationally and pastorally. Children and young adults thrive when their self-esteem is bolstered and confidence enables them to flourish. Our approach is holistic as we believe that there can be no artificial barriers between a student’s intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual growth.
A number of staff are involved in the life of each student, but in particular, the Personal Tutor who meets their tutee on a daily basis, stays the same staff member throughout the student’s 7 years with us.
Our first cohort of 6thfrom students moved on to University. With just 12 candidates we are delighted that 7 achieved their first choice places, 2 took their second choice and one upgraded his choice through clearing. The two remaining students are taking a gap year.
Head Teacher’s Philosophy
We recognise and enhance the individual abilities of each child, welcoming students with varying academic profiles and placing emphasis on confidence, self-esteem and creativity.
By operating a true ‘open door’ policy that welcomes parents and members of the wider community to become a part of school life, Kew House has developed the feeling of a family and social hub that provides emotional support and security for all students and employees.
In September 2017, Kew House opened a brand new Sixth Form Centre which benefits from a beautifully designed independent learning centre on the ground floor. This building reflects the fact that sixth form students are approaching adulthood and encourages independent study in an attractive environment. Facilities include a Sixth Form Café, library, roof terrace, audio-visual suite, and Sixth Form Seminar rooms.
Following an inspection of the school in February 2018 by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) Kew House was particularly delighted to learn from the lead inspector that the results of the student and parent questionnaires were the most positive they had ever seen. There were no recommendations for improvement from our inspectors.
