About Kingsmead School

Kingsmead is a large, mixed, oversubscribed school – easily accessible from both central London and surrounds – with loyal staff, an established standing in the community and a very strong track record. We are consistently above average in Progress 8 and A Level value added, with high Ebacc entry and a wide range of options at KS4 and KS5. Those outcomes are built on a calm, purposeful and collaborative atmosphere.

Despite the school’s size and standing, the Headteacher was appointed relatively young after experience of leading for a high-performing academy chain and in one of the most successful London boroughs. He has restarted the school culture and approach over the last few years and is determined to push it forward from being in the top 20% nationally to being somewhere where things are achieved others do not think possible.

For all our Kingsmead staff we offer:

* A clear and ambitious vision of what the school is for and where it is heading.
* Leaders who are focused on consistent application of systems that allow teachers to teach and children to learn.
* A professional but friendly environment.
* A culture of responsibility and collaboration, not blame.
* Opportunities for career development, with a dedication to providing consistent access to training and considerable time set aside for it across the year.
* Children who value their education, behave well and are positively engaged with the school.
* Dedicated governors, staff, children and parents who work hard to continue to develop our school
