Kenilworth School and Sixth Form is recognised as being graded 'Excellent' in all areas (Ofsted February 2013) but we are ambitious and continue to better ourselves in every way possible. It became a Multi Academy Trust in January 2019 and currently has one other school within the Trust.

We combine high aspirations with a care for individual students. Our students are happy and confident individuals, who enjoy good relationships with their fellow students and the staff. We are a friendly, orderly school with a well-earned reputation for academic, sporting and personal achievement. In this environment students are given every chance to grow and achieve success.

We emphasize the development of skills such as team building, effort, responsibility, healthy competition and leadership. Our students achieve their best because of the range of experiences that we provide in an environment that is positive, supportive and forward-thinking.

Kenilworth School & Sixth Form embraces its role as a comprehensive school serving the whole community. In addition to the good work carried in the classroom there are many clubs and activities that take place outside of school hours. Our former pupils are to be found in many diverse and successful roles, most having moved through further and higher education. Students regularly achieve excellent academic results, well above the national average, and the Sixth Form Centre is very successful in providing a transition to higher education.

Students achieve their best when school and home work is in harmony. We value the contribution made by parents, governors and the community to ensure that we maintain high standards in all aspects of school life.
