School profile

King's Academy Binfield

King’s Academy Binfield (KAB) is an all-through academy in Bracknell Forest. We welcome applicants from a range of backgrounds, including those in industry, and we will accept applications from any subject specialism. As the school continues to grow there will be opportunities for career development.

Our all-through school opened in a superb new building in September 2018 and we have grown year on year with our first Year 11 students currently embarking on their GCSEs. In addition to the secondary phase, we also have two primary phases set across two sites, King’s Academy Binfield (KAB) and King’s Academy Oakwood (KAO). In September 2023, we will have students from year N to year 6 in primary and year 7 through to year 11. We will also open our 6th form provision – KAB6.
