At Knightsbridge School (KS) we believe in the power of community. Of being connected as a family within our school and being part of the community outside. At KS, as our school is known, we aim to be an unashamedly happy and vibrant school. Our ethos is based on a set of values – known as the KS Code – shared beliefs centred on caring for each other and fulfilling our individual potential every day.
Our school has an amazing atmosphere where children can be themselves, where they can discover their many strengths, and challenge their weaknesses, supported by an unbelievably dedicated team of teachers and staff. We are a ‘joined-up’ community at KS – each and every member of staff is connected with every child.
KS has real academic rigour, our children excel across the curriculum, but we are not, and never will be, an academic hothouse. Instead, we provide an enriching and truly rounded education; we have more than 70 extra-curricular clubs at the school. A strong spirit of can-do attitude runs throughout the school from children, to staff to the wonderful parents who support us every step of the way.
KS is deeply involved with the local community, it has meaningful partnerships with two local primary schools, Ashburnham Community Primary School and Marlborough Primary School, and during lockdown we set up and ran a food bank at a third primary school in Lambeth. Before Christmas, KS delivered ‘a Christmas Fair in a box’ to Ashburnham pupils and has provided much-needed mental health support for them by establishing Place2Be at the school.
In a new venture, KS, Marlborough and Ashburnham pupils will together nurture oak saplings to create a new oak forest. Each class will germinate acorns in special vases, and watch their sapling grow before they are replanted in the KS forest Scotland.
KS pupils are encouraged to think of their own ways to support the local community; the eco-committee created wrapping paper out of waste paper which was sold at Christmas to raise money for charity. KS staff and parents took part in a sleep-out for the homeless last term, raising more than £50K for Restart Lives, a charity based in the church opposite the school.
Children learn best when they are happy. And we believe much of human happiness comes from being part of a community so we do everything we can to create a warm, vibrant community both inside and outside our school.
