Everything is possible
Kingsthorpe College is an oversubscribed 11-18 Academy with 1,484 students on roll (198 students in Post 16). The College was rated as ‘Good’ by OFSTED in May 2015, and a Section 8 Inspection in September 2016 confirmed that the previous high expectations had been maintained in all areas. In April 2017, Kingsthorpe College was invited to become a Leading Edge school in recognition of its high performance nationally.
Kingsthorpe College is the kind of school which is dedicated to ensuring that it makes a difference, in any way that it can, to both its community and its young people. The College is passionate about providing opportunities for all its students to achieve artistic, athletic, and academic excellence.
Senior and middle leaders are driving improvement with renewed energy, passion and expertise and systems are now in place to make sure improvement is sustained.
The curriculum for students has been carefully considered. Students study subjects that are personal to them and this has meant that they are keener to learn and achieve.
Students take a pride in their appearance and are proud of the college. Because of this, the students act as positive ambassadors within the college and the local community. Students told inspectors that they felt ‘lucky to be at this school’.
