Academic Excellence in the Heart of London

Kensington Park School is a new independent day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 11-18. It boasts some of the country's most experienced teachers and offers excellent cultural and sporting opportunities, all in the heart of London.

The school operates from two buildings either side of Kensington Gardens:

  • KPS Lower School, in Bark Place, opened in September 2018 for pupils aged 11-16
  • KPS Sixth Form, opposite the Natural History Museum, opened in September 2017 for pupils aged 16-18

This configuration enables the school to have a dedicated Sixth Form Centre where A-levels and preparation for university entrance can be taught in a specialist environment. KPS also has excellent boarding facilities in South Kensington, welcoming pupils from all over the UK and from around the world.

Although a new school, pupils benefit from some of the best teachers in the country. The core team has been drawn from the UK's top schools including St Paul's School, Dulwich College and Winchester College. They are led by Headmaster Paul Vanni, previously Deputy Head of St Paul's Girls' School, who brings a proven track record of academic excellence and comprehensive pastoral care to KPS.

Modern and Dynamic Outlook on Education

The school prides itself on its forward-thinking approach; its ethos, curriculum and co-curricular provision are geared towards preparing pupils for the challenges of the 21st century. The school places emphasis on creativity, on developing its pupils' interpersonal skills, and encouraging a sense of global understanding. This is supported through a modern curriculum with subjects such as Computer Science and Mandarin on offer; hands-on, experiential learning; and an array of exciting sports and activities.

Superb Cultural and Sporting Opportunities

Activities on offer range from technical theatre and dance to fencing and swimming, making use of both the school's own facilities and those in the surrounding area. The school has partnered with local sports organisations such as Imperial College's Ethos Sports Centre with its state-of-the-art gym, pool and climbing wall; expert coaches, including former Olympians, in fencing and riding; and Fulham Reach Boat Club, a superbly equipped new rowing facility on the Thames. There is an exciting outdoor education programme, including the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme. Similar partnerships are in place for music and drama.
