Find out what we’ve been up to recently at Kingsway Park
Welcome to Kingsway Park High School and thank you for your interest in us.
It is my huge privilege and pleasure to be Headteacher here, taking over from a brilliant Head who has led the school through its first ten years so we can face the future with confidence and optimism.
Right now things are especially challenging for all of us in this community and beyond – and many of the effects of this period are going to be with us for some time. My passion is providing young people with the best possible start in life – and that must be our priority now more than ever. Young people in the North of England already face some challenges that many others do not – but too often we let this be the narrative that defines their future, instead of celebrating the extraordinary potential they have.
At Kingsway, we know our job is not just to put them on an “equal” footing with others around the region and the nation – it is to get them ahead. Often that will mean making sure excellent academic achievement is within reach of all and we provide the best teaching, from talented subject experts, every day to make sure every Kingsway student has the opportunity to be successful.
Just as important however is the need for Kingsway students to know they can be ambitious, for themselves, their friends and families and for this community as a whole – that means understanding career routes, options for further study and work opportunities – and most importantly it means having the personal skill set to pursue the future they choose. Resilience, determination, patience and the will to persevere, even if things don’t always go according to plan, are the characteristics that lead to success and here at Kingsway you will find staff committed to giving our young people the chance to grow in confidence at every stage of their education.
I hope you find the information on our website helpful – if you have any questions for us, do get in touch, we are always here to help.
