Kingsdown School welcomes new applications from students living within the local community. Applications can be made for students moving from Year 6 to into the new academic year in September or throughout the year into all year groups.
We recently had our main Year 5 Open Day in June with a great turnout and positive feedback from parents. We even had to extend car parking to the adjacent field. For those who couldn't make it, we have more Open Events below.
Open Morning/s - 9 to 11am - 20th Sept, 21st Sept, 4th Oct, 5th Oct
Yr 6 Open Evening - 6.30pm 27th September (no booking requried for this date)
After the welcome there will be a tour of the school with Senior Leadership Team and Prefects. To arrange a place on any of the above dates please call 01793 822284.
We provide an excellent transition package for new Year 6 students who join the school. The transition package includes numerous visits to Kingsdown for taster days, transition activities including technology days, the Summer School and performances such as literacy festivals and concerts. Our staff and students also visit the Primary schools in order to familiarise them with the Kingsdown Community. Additionally, Kingsdown staff meet with primary teachers to ensure we are aware of all students needs that are joining us, and put support packages in place where appropriate.
We accept new applications and assess them in line with our admissions criteria. The admissions criteria include the following:
