Do you have excellent subject knowledge at either Key Stages 2/3 or Key Stages 3/4?

Kings is a high achieving 13-18 years school. Exam results are consistently high year-on-year, with students making outstanding progress from Key Stage 2 to 4, and after the Sixth Form many students go on to top universities. Accolades and league tables are important, but there is more to Kings than percentages and statistics. We believe in every child, and have high expectations for them regardless of their background. We take pride in excellent attendance and behaviour, a positive attitude, and smart uniform. We want every child who attends Kings to be happy in their learning and believe that they can succeed. Our dedicated and committed staff are here to guide and support students on a daily basis so that they feel loved, cared for and supported. Kings is very much a community school within the heart of the beautiful Cheddar Valley here in Somerset, and is an Upper School of the family of soon to be 16 First and Middle Schools. We are part of the Wessex Learning Trust that strives to offer a world class, 21st century education for all young people between the ages of 2 and 18, by providing outstanding learning opportunities and creating centres of educational excellence that meet the needs of all children. We are passionate that our work in the classroom inspires a love of learning, enquiry and creativity as we strive to develop our young people to prepare them for life and their next steps in our globally competitive world. As an Upper School, exams are obviously a significant part of our work and goals and, therefore, every lesson and every piece of homework really counts. We encourage students to do their best and take pride in their subjects so that ultimately in the final exams they will realise their true potential. Students who join Kings at age 13 in Year 9 follow a continuous curriculum, meeting the full suite of subjects, developing their study skills, before embarking fully upon their Key Stage 4 courses for their GCSEs. For the final year of Year 11 each student is assigned a staff Mentor with whom they meet to review progress and extra support and to feel really boosted. Students are also encouraged to attend golden time extra sessions during the year and, as the exam season gets closer, a dedicated programme of revision sessions in the Easter holidays.
