Kingswinford Academy has once again secured a coveted position near the very top of the performance tables, which are measured by the ‘progress’ our learners make.
Understanding Progress: Why It Matters
To many, the term "progress" in school might sound abstract. In simple terms, progress measures how much a student has developed academically, compared to where they started. Think of it as a gauge of how much value the school has added to a student's learning journey. Why is it important? Well, a good progress score indicates that, irrespective of a student’s starting point, the school has supported them effectively, helping them to achieve at or beyond the expected level. At Kingswinford Academy, we believe every child can excel, and our progress score is a reflection of our commitment to making that belief a reality.

What Sets Us Apart
Consistent Excellence: This ranking, though a number, reflects our dedication to academic excellence, the commitment of our inspiring staff and the positive attitudes to learning demonstrated by our students..
Beyond Academics: Kingswinford Academy believes in nurturing every child's potential, ensuring they unlock not just their academic, but also their personal potential, to become all and more than they ever thought they could be.
Community Spirit: Our achievements are a testament to the collective efforts of our teachers, students, parents, and the broader community. We truly are stronger together.
A Word from Our Headteacher, Ian Moreton:
"In every child, we see a world of potential. At Kingswinford Academy, it's our mission and our passion to nurture that potential into excellence. To see this recognised in the performance tables once again is a testament to the journey we're on together."
While we cherish these accomplishments, we understand that education is about much more than rankings. We encourage parents and students to delve deeper into what makes a school truly exceptional. Every child’s progress is a journey, and it’s essential to choose a school that understands and nurtures this journey.
