Local praise for Kingsdown School

Justin Tomlinson MP recently visited Kingsdown School, and was evidently impressed by the transformation of the school, and indeed the amazing results of Cohort 2019, so much so, Mr Tomlinson shared the following statement with the Swindon Advertiser following his visit:

“I visited Kingsdown School and met with Headteacher Emma Leigh-Bennett to catch up on her first two years in charge.  I was very pleased to hear about the significant improvements that have been made – which saw students who received their GCSEs this year perform, on average, half a grade better than the previous year’s students across their best eight subjects. 
While at the school I spoke to several students – including the head boy, head girl and deputy head girl - and I was very impressed with how engaged and enthusiastic they were, fantastic advocates for the school.
It is great to hear about the improvements at Kingsdown, a key school within our community.”

If you haven’t already seen for yourself the incredible #pride and #ambition at Kingsdown, feel free to make an appointment to visit.
