Knightsbridge School delivers an all-round and all-through education up to GCSE, ensuring students are equipped to pursue any path they choose in the future. Over the course of the pandemic KS has provided an extensive online education, including 38 extra-curriculars delivered virtually. A KS parent says, ‘Based on what you hear other schools are offering, we are just on another planet here at KS.’
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 students performing on the West End in Les Misérables and School of Rock and another in a Netflix production. We have over 60 extra-curricular weekly clubs, allowing our students to expand their curiosity beyond just the academics and experience robotics, horse riding, lacrosse and many other choices.
KS is a positive and high-energy family, the school runs timetabled wellbeing and personal reflection sessions each week through PSHE lessons and form time to try maintain it and deal with issues as soon as they arise. KS has continued whole community support during the pandemic, with weekly wellness tips and activities to keep our minds creative and bodies healthy. KS celebrates Mental Health Week: the children practice secret acts of kindness and have in a whole-school yoga session. KS is the first independent day school to introduce children’s mental health counselling service, Place2Be, and have raised funds to gift a year of this service to local school, Ashburnham Community School.
’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 proud of our diverse extra-curricular programmes, events, trips and visiting speakers which lead to lifelong learners outside the classroom. KS gives back to the local community, through our Global Goals Projects, which saw students sending letters about positive eco-change to the Kensington and Chelsea council, and our KS Education Foundation bursaries, providing outstanding education throughout students’ entire school career.
