Character Education at King’s

The founders of the academy, Great Schools for All Children, firmly believe that if young people come to a school where they feel valued, safe and that teachers have their best interests at heart then they will commit themselves; they will work harder; suffer fewer distractions; become more motivated and achieve more.

Research showed that by pursuing a character driven approach to education based on a firm set of values could produce such an ethos.

At King’s we believe that education is not just about academic success. We believe that it is also about developing excellent character qualities in our students. We believe that in developing these qualities you will become a much better person; a person who can balance academic success with personal and social responsibility; a person who understands the need to be truthful and honest; a person who will work hard and never give up; a person who fully understands his or her own strengths and areas for development and becomes, eventually, a leader within our future society.’
