As the Headmaster of Kew House, I am extremely proud to run a happy school where students embrace the opportunities we offer.
Kew House School opened its doors to students for the first time in September 2013.
It is my privilege to walk amongst our learning community each day. Our pupils learn within a purposeful, inclusive and forgiving environment. The calmness of the atmosphere is the outcome of many simple features within the planning and running of the school. Pupils only ever move from a lesson to a break, rather than a lesson to a lesson. They solely carry the things they need with them for each lesson, not overburdened by hefty bags. The community runs on expectations not rules. Each year the Pupil Council review their expectations of each other, tweaking them as they feel appropriate. These Pupil Expectations can be found within this website and serve as an important statement of how we believe that young people should be involved in their education.
The school celebrates achievement in all areas of pupil activity. Often ignored as an important element of inclusion, it is the recognition and respect that young people give to each other for their individual endeavors that bonds them as a group. From Oxbridge entry, to work experience with Formula 1 teams, Spotify streams to stage success, rowing medals to netball cups: our community cherishes and celebrates them all.
