Knightsbridge School makes a child’s individuality into a success. Our curriculum delivers this through its variety, creating an all –rounder. From 2021 KS will also be providing GSCEs as we expand up to 16 years.
Games & The Arts
We attend over 300 matches per year as well as parent vs staff role modelling matches. We excel in gymnastics, dance, fencing, ballet and performing arts. For example, we have two current students performing on the West End in Les Miserables and School of Rock, another who represents the Great Britain 9-11 years’ team in gymnastics as well as a student who fences for the Welsh national team. We have over 60 extra-curricular clubs’ weekly, allowing our students to expand their curiosity beyond just the academics and experience robotics, horse-riding, lacrosse and many other choices.
KS is a high energy and positive family, the school runs timetabled wellbeing and personal reflection sessions each week through PSHE lessons and form time to try and maintain this and deal with issues as soon as they arise. We had a Mental Health Week, where the children practiced doing secret acts of kindness and participated in a whole school yoga session. KS is the first independent day school to introduce children’s mental health counselling service ‘Place2Be’ onto its premises, a cause we will be marching alongside in this year’s Lord Mayor’s Show.
’Work hard, play hard’ is the motto. Mr Magoo expects everyone to do their best, embrace a healthy body and mind, give and share, and to realise how lucky they are at all times.
At KS there is an ecosystem of happiness between the children, staff and parents cultivated through open communication. We are immensely proud of our diverse extra-curricular programmes, events, trips and visiting speakers that are integral to the all-round success of the individual as lifelong learners outside of the classroom. KS is a school that prides itself on giving back to the local community, whether this be through our Global Goals Projects, which saw students sending letters about positive eco change to the local Kensington and Chelsea council or our KS Education Foundation bursaries, allowing children access to outstanding
education throughout their entire school career.
