Kingsmead School

Kingsmead is the most oversubscribed school in Staffordshire, rated Good with outstanding features in 2021. At Kingsmead we understand that each child is unique: we strive to unlock the potential every person has no matter what role they hold within our school. We do this by challenging any barriers to success, recruiting the best staff, and developing them to be outstanding in their day-to-day practice. We demand the highest commitment from teachers, governors, and students. We do this for our students, parents and local community and believe that our values of being the best that you can be, never giving up, having a thirst for knowledge, behaving with honour and respect and always being ready to learn will help us to reach this goal. Kingsmead is a school for taking chances, it is a school to excel in, it is a school that will always challenge you to try harder, to do better, to be honest with yourself and proud of what you achieve.

About our school experience

On visiting Kingsmead, you will get a flavour of how a school operates and a real focus on lessons and how teachers deliver knowledge to students - encouraging them ‘to fly’ and to tackle challenge with confidence. Kingsmead serves to develop academic excellence and build a student’s character. During your experience you will see how teaching is a craft and as practitioners we continue to hone as well as focussing on the objective of education being learning not teaching.
