The Curriculum

 KGPS delivers a curriculum that far exceeds the national curriculum in both breadth and depth. Purposeful, ambitious and inspiring lessons are delivered to nurture creativity and instil resilience.

Games & The Arts

We have outstanding art, music, drama and sports departments as any visitor would realise immediately. All our children compete, perform and enjoy the exceptional standards we achieve in these areas.

Pastoral Care

We operate a genuine ‘Open Door’ policy where parents play a very active role in school life. Every adult in school knows every child. Relationships are strong, children are happy, well-motivated and confident to ask questions, make mistakes and give opinions. They are valued and listened to. The behaviour we encourage and expect from our pupils at Kew Green is based on a whole-school ethos of respect and tolerance.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

Children thrive in an environment where they feel safe, respected, challenged and inspired. Excellent education must reach beyond a prescribed knowledge-based curriculum and recognise a child’s full potential in terms of physical, emotional, social and intellectual development. Focusing on who the child is becoming while they succeed and achieve academically.

Outstanding Characteristics

Kew Green Nursery opened in September 2022, located at a new site close to the main school. Nursery children benefit from use of the Prep school facilities and specialist teaching in subjects such as art, computing, music, languages and PE. They also have an automatic place in Reception at the Prep school. Consequently, children can attend KGPS from ages 2 to 11, and, if desired, ages 2-18 within the Gardener Schools Group. KGPS is nestled in a peaceful corner of Kew Green by the banks of the River Thames. It feels like a country school while it is very much in London.
