Kingston Grammar School

Kingston Grammar School is one of the most successful co-educational schools in the country. Inspirational teaching and a deep commitment to pastoral care means that students grow in confidence and understanding, and individual talents and creativity are able to flourish. Our students are bright and enthusiastic; their joy in life and spirit of curiosity makes education here a real pleasure.

Our co-curricular programme plays a central part in this. Students develop their self-awareness, skills and competence through an extraordinary range of trips, expeditions and activities, contributing significantly to the rounded individuals they become.

For many, the world outside the formal academic curriculum will provide the key to their future lives. Physical Education and Sport in Independent Schools (2012) by Malcolm Tozer contains a survey of the number of sporting internationals to have come from independent schools since 2000. Kingston Grammar School is ranked equal fifth, and third for Olympians – quite an achievement for a school of our size.

You will also find a strong tradition of theatre, art and music here, with Old Kingstonians making their mark on the stage, in performance and in all aspects of the design world. 

The future for Kingston Grammar School and its staff and students is an exciting one.
