The Curriculum

Knightsbridge School delivers an all-around and all-through education up to GCSE, ensuring students are equipped to pursue the path they choose in the future. Over the course of the pandemic, KS has provided an extensive online education, including 38 extra-curriculars delivered virtually. A KS parent says, ‘Based on what you hear other schools are offering, we are just on another planet here at KS.’

Games & The Arts

There are 300 matches per year and parent vs staff role modelling matches. We excel in netball, fencing, skiing, music, and performing arts. We have had teams and individuals reaching National standard in several sports including gymnastics (team GB), fencing, table tennis and triathlon. In addition, our pupils have performed on stage with the English National Ballet (Nutcracker) and in The Sound of Music, Les Misérables, School of Rock and Leopoldstadt as well as in The Secret Garden film.

We are lucky to have many peripatetic music teachers on-site who guide children in one-to-one lessons on violin, cello, brass, guitar, piano, drums, percussion, harp and woodwind as well as voice. A large proportion of our children busk, perform in assemblies and take ABRSM music exams termly.

We have over 70 extra-curricular weekly clubs/co-curricular offerings each week, allowing our students to indulge their curiosity, try something new and extend their skills such as robotics, horse riding, lacrosse, and many other choices.

Pastoral Care

The school runs timetabled wellbeing and personal reflection sessions each week so that our pupils can understand who they are and what they need to achieve. KS has continued whole community support during the pandemic, with weekly wellness tips and activities to keep minds creative and bodies healthy.

KS was the first independent day school to introduce children’s mental health counselling service, Place2Be, and has raised funds to gift a year of this service to a local (Ashburnham Community) Primary School. We also support another local (Marlborough) Primary School with curriculum resources, library books, subsidised places in our clubs and specialist workshops.

We have a pupil wellbeing lead and a wellbeing prefect strengthening our commitment to pastoral care.

Principal’s Philosophy

All-round Achievement in an ecosystem of happiness; we all learn and achieve better when we feel happy and secure. By having the very best team supporting our wonderful children, they can take risks and learn together. Strong home school communication ensures that the messages around our pupils are consistent and clear. Happy children, happy parents, happy staff…

Outstanding Characteristics

At KS we expect our community to follow the KS Code in and out of school. We are proud of our diverse extra-curricular programme, events, trips, and guest speakers to inspire, challenge and engage.

We have an active Eco-committee focused on reducing our carbon footprint and increasing sustainable practice.

Our KS Education Foundation provides bursaries, supporting pupils through their entire school journey. Community is at the heart of everything that we do.
