The Kingsley School to teach boys
Independent girls’ day school The Kingsley School in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, is to go co-educational from September 2025.
The school announced it will admit boys into the senior school and sixth form, initially integrated into Years 7 and 12.
The Kingsley School currently educates girls aged from 3 to 18, with a co-educational preparatory school also taking boys up to the age of 11.
On its website the school states: “In addition to our expertise in supporting girls, we also have significant expertise in supporting boys. Members of our senior team have recent co-educational experience and we can also draw on the expertise of our colleagues at Warwick School, with its fine tradition of boys’ education, as well as the wider foundation.
“Our outstandingly successful approach to pastoral care will now be available for your son as well as your daughter.
“We are proudly an academically selective school. Year after year, our pupils excel, achieving outstanding results and leaving for a wide range of higher education destinations which serve to illustrate their diversity of skills and interests. We are even more proud of the value added – among the best in the county – which enables each pupil to achieve often well beyond their expectations.”
Headteacher James Mercer-Kelly said: “Together we are a strong and connected community with a purposeful journey ahead of us. We put the young people in our care at the very centre of everything we do, and with our support look forward to seeing them learn to fly.”
