Welcome from the Headteacher

Welcome to Kingswinford Academy, an excellent school striving for all of our community to ‘Be Extraordinary’. We pride ourselves in being one of the very best schools in our area whilst remaining very much at the heart of our community.

An exceptional place for young people to learn, grow and develop

Since joining Windsor Academy Trust in November 2016, our school has gone from strength to strength. Exam results have risen rapidly each year, the range of extracurricular activities has grown significantly and our site and facilities being revamped, developed and expanded. 

We are rightly proud of the incredible work of our students, staff and whole community in making this a truly exceptional place for young people to learn, grow and develop.

At Kingswinford, we believe that all students in our community deserve the very best start in life. Our excellent team of staff strive daily to make sure that they have the very best opportunity to do just that. For many years we have had a strong reputation for achieving high academic standards and for ensuring our students can be happy and safe.

A broad curriculum with outstanding extracurricular opportunities

Kingswinford Academy offers an academically broad education supported by an incredibly rich extracurricular programme based around our student pledge. This pledge is a set of twelve challenging experiences for students to achieve and excel at before they leave school. This combination of academic and extracurricular activities prepares our students for the next step in their education and on into their future careers.

Our last full Ofsted inspection was extremely successful and Kingswinford Academy was judged as a “Good school”. However, we are not content with just being ‘Good’ and will continually strive to improve and make the lives of the young people of Kingswinford better and brighter year on year.

Windsor Academy Trust is one of the country’s most innovative and progressive trusts, deliberately putting teaching and student experience at the very centre of all of our development work. 

The success of this approach is clear and ensures that we have the capacity to grow and improve long into the future. Our collaboration with the Trust makes us an employer of choice in the region and ensures we give our students the best experience possible.

Visit Kingswinford Academy

Under normal circumstances you are welcome to come and visit us to see for yourself the calm, purposeful atmosphere of our school. This is testimony to the dedication of excellent staff and superb students. However, given the local and national situation, we are unable to offer personal visits. You can, however, take part in our 'Virtual Open Evening', and you can book a call back from one of my team here.
