“I firmly believe all young people can be brilliant at something. It is each student’s responsibility to immerse themselves in as many learning experiences as possible in order to discover their unique strengths and talents. By working as a team with their teachers, parents and classmates they can progress along their personal path to greater success and happiness.”
At Kingswood Academy we recognise that a lot goes into providing a well rounded education. We believe that it’s important to support students in building character as well as pushing them to make progress academically.
Through a programme of workshops delivered by an external expert speaker, assemblies and Academic Mentoring sessions, we dedicate regular time to help students think about the characteristics that will make them successful both inside and outside the classroom. This helps prepare them for college, university and the working world.
Academic Mentoring sessions provide an opportunity to set students tasks to complete at home where they can apply the skills they are learning. These assist students in building relationships with family and friends in a non school setting. Developing these skills will build students’ confidence and push them to be proactive and inquisitive.
