Headmaster, Simon Morris, commented, “We are naturally delighted to be recognised as one of the top academic boarding schools in the UK. It is a real accolade and one of which we are extremely proud. Here at Kingswood we constantly strive to give our pupils as many opportunities as possible and we believe that a quality education is about so much more than pure exam results. Strong pastoral care, a range of activities and opportunities for our pupils to be involved with, an appreciation of others and developing skills for life beyond school is very much part of the Kingswood ethos. I am so pleased that Kingswood staff and pupils’ academic achievements have been recognised within this much broader understanding of educational success.”
