Our Mission

Our mission is to provide high quality education within a small community of outstanding schools in the UK, that will deliver a transformative learning experience to all our students within the context of a global community of schools. King’s Group Academies has at its core the pursuit of the very highest standards both inside the classroom and beyond it. We believe all students can exceed their expectations no matter what their prior attainment and experiences. In a King’s Group Academy no student will be labelled, we will treat them all as intelligent individuals. Through our ethos, our extended curriculum, our entrepreneurial approach and international dimension we will ensure students develop into confident, rounded individuals, equipped for life in an ever changing world.
