The Curriculum

Our curriculum focuses on certain skills and outcomes, fires them up, adds a focus on intellectual character and then delivers it through passionate professionals in order to help our children grow and learn.

Games & The Arts

Knightsbridge attend over 300 matches, as well as Parent vs Staff role-modelling matches. S6 Girls won the ISA North Netball, and Knightsbridge children excel in gymnastics, dance, fencing, ballet and sailing, with competition winners in all areas. There are over 70+ extra-curricular weekly clubs as well as a Key Skills Week that takes place in the October half-term, the Knightsbridge School Talent Show and our Young Entrepreneur Event, which has led our pupils to take their ideas into production.

In the performing arena, productions have included: Revue (S8), High School Musical (S6), Wind in The Willows (J3), Robin Hood (J1), Twelfth Night (Knightsbridge School Drama Club) as well as the Christmas/Summer Reception shows and Nursery Nativity. LAMDA at KS is a huge success. We also have pupils who star in West End productions of Les Mis and School of Rock.

Pastoral Care

Class teachers take responsibility for the pastoral care of Nursery, Early Years and Junior School children through daily form time sessions. In the Senior School, house tutors run timetabled Wellbeing and Personal Reflection sessions each week.  A counsellor from Children’s Mental Health Charity ‘Place2Be’ is present three days a week, and any child may attend a ‘Place2talk’ session. A designated Pupil Wellbeing Lead has also been appointed.

Recent Scholarships

Music and Drama Awards to Priorsfield; 100% bursaries to St Pauls and Uppingham; and two internal scholarships.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

‘Work hard, play hard’ is the motto of the parents, staff and seniors at Knightsbridge. This follows fast on the heels of the Sandhurst motto ‘Serve to lead!’ Mr Magoo expects everyone to embrace the boxing match of life and to do their best, embrace a healthy body and healthy mind, give and share and to realise how lucky they are at all times!

Outstanding Characteristics

Knightsbridge School (KS) is governed by the KS Code both in and out of school. There is an ecosystem of happiness between the stakeholders: children; staff and parents. The extra-curricular and the curricular programmes are integral to the all-round success of the individual. KS have an Eco Team that ensures our pupils, parents and staff are doing their part to protect the environment. Children have Forest School as part of the curriculum weekly in Holland Park and a permanent location for KS in the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea.
