KS is delighted that students can now stay on at the school until the age of 16, facilitating an all-through education. We are able to take our fantastic pastoral care to help guide and nurture our students all the way to GCSE.
Most senior pupils join us from our own junior section where they have a thirst and love for learning, inspired by curiosity and our engaging staff. We are also proud to welcome students into our senior school at Y7 and Y9, alongside our bursary students who bring great new energy to the year groups. We also offer a strong co-curricular program including The Duke of Edinburgh Award, residentials and guest speaker talks. Our incredible location in Knightsbridge means we are able to extend the pupils’ learning through regular museum and theatre visits. In Y9 our students make their GCSE choices which will be taken up in Y11.
We believe in ‘the right school for the right child’ ethos and so in the Senior School we still prepare the students for the 13+ Common Entrance and many of our students move on to a range of leading London day and country boarding schools as happy, well-rounded individuals. Our Senior students follow a broad, balanced curriculum including English Language and Literature, Mathematics, Science, French, and a second Modern Foreign Language of choice, Latin, History, Geography, Computing, Art, Performing Arts, PE & Games, and Perspectives.
The School ensures that parents are able to make informed decisions about the most appropriate next schools for their child, whether that is at 13+ or 16. We embed volunteering and work experience opportunities in to our Senior years, alongside ‘careers week’ and sixth form and university tours/open days throughout the year, to help support our pupils with their choices for A-Levels and beyond.
