Kingston Church of England Secondary School is being established by the Southwark Diocesan Board of Education (SDBE), and will be operated by the SDBE multi-academy trust. This provenance harnesses significant experience in 11-16 education provision – the Diocese of Southwark covers 12 local authorities across south London and part of Surrey, offering support and advice to 106 Church of England schools and academies and to FE and HE chaplaincies in the Diocese. In terms of our schools, 89% are judged Good or Outstanding by Ofsted compared to 81% nationally.
Kingston CofE Secondary School will develop a mutually beneficial partnership with an existing high performing Church of England secondary school, to deliver high quality education from the outset.
The school will be run by a Board of Governors who will be accountable to the charitable Trust which oversees the school. In addition the school will be accountable to the Secretary of State for Education through the terms of its Funding Agreement.
