Welcome to Kingswood College

Kingswood College is a school where everyone knows your name. Where the connections between the pupils and staff feel like family, where big dreams and aspirations are fulfilled, and where we care deeply not only about the uniqueness of every pupil but also their family. Kingswood pupils are happy children. Our motto – ‘Studia Hilaritate Proveniunt’ – means ‘in cheerfulness is the success of our studies’ and this cheerful character can be felt.

“At Kingswood, we want all our pupils to live life to its fullest; to have the opportunity to find their passion, to sharpen their intellect, discover who they are and leave our school believing that they can go on to make a difference in society.”

Kingswood College holds true to the rich traditions of a Methodist boarding school while providing innovative and creative experiences in the academic, cultural and sporting programmes on offer at our school. Our overarching vision is to ‘educate our pupils for life’ and this vision is lived out in all that we do: our holistic academic curriculum and co-curricular programme is designed to bring out the best in each pupil. We strive to build character whilst developing leaders who shine in areas of their strength and interest.

As a parent of two children, one in senior school and one in junior school, I know how important it is to find the right school for your child, a place where the teachers see promise in your child and will go the extra mile to develop their potential. A place where the staff care as much about your child as you do. As a previous senior school teacher, psychologist and organisational development specialist, I could not be more proud to lead this College.  

If you want to go quickly go alone, if you want to go far, go together’ – African Proverb. Our Kingswood pupils – go together.
