THE Kingsley School has joined forces with Warwick Independent Schools Foundation.
The school on Beauchamp Avenue, which is home to some 300 pupils, is joining the foundation’s umbrella alongside Warwick Preparatory School, Warwick Junior School, King’s High School, and Warwick School.
Kingsley chair Maureen Hicks said: “This heralds a new beginning for Kingsley, as part of the Warwick Independent Schools family of schools.
“Kingsley will continue to offer the unique education for which it is so renowned, while building on our strengths associated with a smaller school, alongside a highly reputable family of schools that we know so well. Through the sharing of skills and expertise we know Kingsley will continue to thrive in the future.’’
‘’It will be business as usual for Kingsley, with our own head, leadership team and staff and our pupils in their distinctive Kingsley uniform, still at the heart of Leamington, ambassadors for the first-class education and pastoral care for which we are so highly regarded.’’
Warwick Independent Schools Foundation principal Richard Nicholson said: “Our schools already know each other well, and there are families with children at Kingsley and the current Foundation Schools.
“By welcoming The Kingsley School into the Warwick Foundation family of schools, we are extending our embrace to a friend and neighbour, further fulfilling our charitable aim to advance education in the local area.
“We believe Kingsley’s rich history, distinctive ethos and strong culture play a key role in the diversity of outstanding independent schools in the midlands.’’
