Educational Philosophy

Our mission statement asserts that Kingswood "provides an education in a family-like environment, developing the self-worth and academic, leadership, spiritual, social, moral, cultural and physical potential of every pupil". This guides all that we do, combined with our quest to assist pupils to cope with the challenges of the modern world.

CO-EDUCATION: We believe that co-education is the best way to prepare pupils to become successful and well-adjusted adults. As our pupils mature together from Pre-Primary through to Bridging Year, we are able to address specific gender issues at appropriate developmental stages.

After its long history as a school for boys, Kingswood College took the decisive step of admitting girls in 1974. Our boys and girls learn to respect one another for the different contributions that they make to life in the College, and develop and natural relationships. 

VALUES: With its Methodist foundation and tradition, Kingswood College stands firmly on the principles of Christian beliefs and values. In an increasingly muddled world, children need to establish their own faith and be given firm guidance about values and morality

The College appoints its own Chaplain in consultation with the Methodist Church. The Chaplain is readily available for pupils and staff for both spiritual and secular matters. Children of a diversity of denominations are confirmed each year. 

Tolerance and respect are vital to the Kingswood ethos and children from a variety of faiths are enrolled and welcomed at Kingswood. The Chapel is at the centre and in the heart of the College. Worship is gentle but determined, infusing the broader ethos of the College with warmth and sensible Wesleyan values.

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS : We aim to instill in pupils the vital necessity for social skills and social conscience. A spirit of tolerance must be developed in each pupil.

While the Chapel may be at the centre of the College, it also aims to be part of the wider community. Pupils are encouraged to become involved in community development projects under the auspices of the Integrated Community Development Programme Trust (ICDP),and especially at the Lebone Centre for vulnerable children. Projects which Kingswood pupils supervise include afternoon care, educational enrichment and computer literacy classes. Pupils are encouraged to show concern for and interest in those less fortunate than themselves.
