Seven Kings School is an all through school which welcomes children aged 4 to 18 from the local community. Seven Kings High School has a long and successful history as a very high performing, outstanding school. To build on this success and to develop the excellent education we provide we were delighted that our new Primary opened in September 2015. The Primary school started with 120 Reception children and will grow year on year until it is full by 2021.
We provide a broad and balanced curriculum that offers all students the opportunity to succeed. We focus on teaching students the skills to be effective learners, and to encourage in them a love of learning that they will keep throughout their life. Many enrichment opportunities add to students' experience and development.
The work that takes place in the classroom is the cornerstone of the school's success. A dedicated team of well qualified and skilled teachers and support staff provide outstanding learning and teaching for students and our work as a Teaching School helps to maintain and develop further the quality of the classroom experience. Our students are enthusiastic, motivated and ambitious to succeed and maintain very high standards of behaviour and engagement in their studies. They are encouraged to be reflective and creative in their thinking and to become increasingly independent learners as they progress through the school.
Every student will need guidance and encouragement and at Seven Kings we aim to meet individual needs by providing the right level of challenge and support to ensure students reach their full potential.
We support students with this by focusing on providing quality teaching, responding to their needs to ensure the right level of stretch and challenge. There are a range of intervention and support programmes for those students who need extra help, such as those with learning difficulties. We are very proud of the inclusive nature of our school and aim to personalise learning and teaching so that every student is able to succeed.
There is a structured home learning timetable and all students are given a planner to help them organise their time and workload. Parents/carers are asked to check this on a weekly basis. There are home learning support clubs at lunchtimes and after school to help students if they need it.
The school also has Learning Mentors to support students and mentoring schemes with both staff and student mentors available to support students.
Beyond the Classroom
There are many opportunities for students to take part in extra curricular activities at Seven Kings. A large number of clubs and activities take place outside lesson times. Staff are committed to providing different opportunities to enrich the lives of Seven Kings' students. Subject based clubs, such as those in Art, Drama, Music, Science, Sport and Technology enhance the curriculum and many trips and visits support classroom learning.
We offer a number of residential trips, to places like Paris, Spain, China, outdoor pursuits and a skiing trip to Austria. Students are encouraged to enter competitions and to contribute to the community in different ways. Our peer committees and student leadership programmes help develop leadership skills and provide opportunities for students' views to be heard.
There are termly Music concerts and many Drama productions each year which help students develop their performance skills and their self-confidence. The P.E. department run many school teams and have enjoyed considerable success in local competitions.
