Welcome to Kingsdale Foundation School, the School of Co-educational Academy of Advanced, Artistic and Academic Studies

Kingsdale promotes academic and personal excellence, applauds achievement, cherishes success and celebrates our differences. Kingsdale is one of the most popular schools in the country and caters for the needs of a truly wonderful, talented and diverse community. Kingsdale is particularly well suited to aspirational children, teachers and families.

“The school is progressive and dynamic; one of the UK’s most improved in recent years. It is renowned for its outstanding performance in mathematics and music. The school has been recognised for its performance and outstanding learning environment through School Improvement Awards and the ‘Inspiration Through Architecture’ prize at the Building of the Year Awards.

Following a major rebuilding and refurbishment programme, Kingsdale has been transformed into a contemporary learning environment which, as well as winning awards for its architecture, provides a dynamic setting for the pursuit for educational excellence.”
