Our academy is a superb place to grow, to learn, to work and to flourish. As a relatively new academy (we opened in January 2016 and moved into our superb new build in November 2016), we are keen to retain our place as ‘the school of choice in Kidsgrove’. Our motto ‘Learning with truth and love’ epitomises the values towards which our governors, our staff and our students strive to embody. Students are consistently inspired and encouraged to become everything that God has created them to be, through a wide ranging and inclusive curriculum and a wealth of exciting enrichment opportunities. We work hard to create a vibrant, mutually supportive climate for learning in which everyone can thrive. Staff lead by example and are passionate about encouraging, inspiring, challenging and stretching every individual in their care, so that they can achieve at the highest levels. We do our utmost to maximise the attainment of each student, placing great emphasis on individual character development and personal growth. We are an inclusive school with students of all abilities and social backgrounds. For those students with individual learning and physical needs, we have an extensive inclusion team. Our staff make every effort to get to know each student as an individual. Our well embedded ‘Behaviour for Learning’ policy is designed to encourage positive attitudes to lessons and to ensure students’ behaviour underpins their learning. A recent external assessment describes behaviour in lessons as 'exemplary'. Our mission is to enable students to leave The King's with outstanding results and life changing experiences, equipped to be responsible and caring citizens ready to make their mark on the world in which they live. Staff turnover at The King’s is really low: people want to stay and work here. The academy is a community of its own. Colleagues join us from the local area and from further afield - it is a place where professionals want to work. Ofsted graded our school as good with outstanding features in 2017; we are on our own journey to be outstanding.
