About us

_SJP4858.jpg

Kingston Grammar School is one of the most successful co-educational schools in the country, and has a long tradition of developing individual talent and encouraging high aspirations. Our pupils are bright and enthusiastic; their joy in life and spirit of curiosity makes education here a real pleasure.

Inspirational teaching and a deep commitment to pastoral care means that pupils grow in confidence and understanding, and individual talents and creativity are able to flourish. International GCSEs, the introduction of Mandarin into our curriculum and Extended Projects interweave with more traditional examinations to produce an exciting and vibrant academic diet, designed to challenge expectations and to engage pupils in a love of learning.

We make sure that our pupils are drawn into investigation and enquiry beyond the confines of the various examination specifications. They develop their skills and thinking in ways which give them the fullest advantage at university, and the resilience and flexibility to make the most of the opportunities that come their way.

Facilities

The School’s historic red-brick buildings are based in the heart of Kingston upon Thames, with its excellent transport links. With easy accessibility to the metropolitan diversity of central London, and its wealth of cultural opportunities, students benefit from what our urban location can offer.

There is an extensive range of outstanding facilities for co-curricular activities, including an all-weather Sports Cage and dedicated STEAM facilties. The Michael Frayn Theatre (with Green Room) is the centrepiece of our magnificent Queen Elizabeth II Performing Arts Centre. It features state-of-theart lighting, sound and special-effects technology, and a sprung wooden floor, making it ideal for our students’ drama, dance and musical performances. The tiered seating has a flexible configuration, and seats audiences of up to 200. The theatre was officially named on 5th October 2017, with Michael Frayn (OK) as guest of honour.

The Lovekyn Chapel is the only remaining free-standing chantry chapel in England and, dating back to 1309, is the oldest complete building in Kingston. Although it is no longer used for religious services, it’s the most popular venue in the Royal Borough for civil ceremonies and partnerships. As an elegant and bright space with excellent acoustics, it is also frequently used for musical performances and readings.

A number of our facilities are available to hire for weddings, parties, conferences, exhibitions performances and more.
