Head of Secondary’s Welcome
Welcome to Seven Kings a school which has a long tradition of providing outstanding education to our local community and beyond.
At Seven Kings Secondary School and Sixth Form we are relentless in our pursuit of excellence because we know what a difference it can make to the lives of our young people, their families and community. The ideas contained in the school motto, "Friendship Excellence and Opportunity" guide everything we do. Friendship is the cornerstone of our core business as regardless of a student's age, children learn best when they are happy, safe and secure. We believe that Seven Kings can make a radical difference to the life chances of our students and that we can help nurture brave, respectful, curious and kind citizens. We are proud of our inclusive approach, which is informed by the principle that a stimulating and personalised education is an entitlement for every child. The harmonious ethos and outstanding relationships underpin all that we do and provide the foundation for the school's legacy of success. OFSTED 2018 "the strong relationships between pupils and staff contributes to an exceptional environment in which all pupils thrive".
Seven Kings Sixth Form has been at the top of its game for 20 years with a legacy of educating young people from the East End of London. Our expert teaching staff and an ambitious, supportive pastoral team enable our learners to be challenged and to challenge.
Seven Kings is a community secondary school. Every year we combine 50% of our own learners bringing their love of learning, students who have learnt how to be learners, with 50% of the best brains across East London. Our new Kings (external) bring with them passion, curiosity and tenacity; the combination is exciting and aspiring. We offer traditional A Levels, with a breadth of subjects nurturing future artists, musicians, geographers, mathematicians, scientists and linguists.
Our state of the art facilities include our university style laboratory, the first to be fitted in a school in the country, alongside our bespoke 6th form buildings, illustrating the value we place on the student leaders of our school who will shape the future of this country. Our entry requirements reflect our inclusive school; we passionately believe that there is no ceiling to achievement as demonstrated in our destination data.
We are proud of the number of head teachers and teachers who have gone on to serve the young people of East London, teachers who started their careers at Seven Kings. Our Teaching School has a national reputation not only for leadership but also for our classroom practice in inspiring and nurturing teachers to go on and inspire further generation.
The support of our whole school community; children, families and staff is vitally important to our continued success and we look forward to meeting you and working alongside you.
