Headteacher's Welcome

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.  We are incredibly proud of our College, and I am delighted to be able to share a flavour of this with you.

At Kingsthorpe College, we are passionate about providing opportunities for all our students to achieve artistic, athletic and academic excellence.  We very much believe that our role is to help develop successful learners, confident individuals, and responsible citizens.  In addition to ensuring that all our young people achieve their potential in these areas, there is also a genuine commitment to respect for individuals which is demonstrated in the daily life of the College.

High quality relationships are at the heart of everything that we do.  We want our young people to be happy, confident, curious, and resilient learners.  We know that this can only happen if relationships are built on trust and mutual respect.  We believe that when young people feel safe and secure, everything is possible, and we promise to do our utmost to make sure that we unlock the potential in everyone.

All we can ask from our students is that they do their best, and we value hard work, determination, and thoughtfulness.  We are proud of the extracurricular provision that we can offer, and we work hard to give our students plenty of opportunities to develop their confidence and creativity – both in and out of lessons. 

We believe in clarity of communication, and the power of feedback.  We always welcome open and honest dialogue between all those involved in and with the College.  We are excited and optimistic about what the future holds for the young people and community which we serve.

We look forward to welcoming you to Kingsthorpe College, so you can see first-hand what a great school we are.
