We summarise our aims as a school by the phrase ‘IN PURSUIT OF EXCELLENCE’. We want every student to strive to achieve the very best they can, in every aspect of school life – from their studies, to participation in school shows, sporting activities, extra-curricular activities and so on.

The key to achieving this is home, student and school working in partnership. By working together, we can ensure students receive the right guidance, support and challenge to achieve their best.

The wellbeing of our students is something we also take seriously, since we want students to be happy, well-adjusted and resilient during their time at KES and beyond. A happy, secure student is far more likely to be successful throughout life. The opportunities on offer at KES allow students to develop in this way and to develop the skills and attributes they need to face the future with confidence.

Staff focus on delivering excellent teaching, making good use of the school’s outstanding facilities. Students are challenged and stretched to produce their best, and then challenged to improve further.
