ABOUT KINGSCOURT SCHOOL, CATHERINGTON, UK
Kingscourt is a small independent school for boys and girls aged 3-11 years in Catherington, Hampshire. We are based in 20 acres of countryside and are proud of our consistently high academic standards in Maths, English and Science. Our children’s reading ages are significantly above the UK average.
All of our students, from the youngest to the oldest, are encouraged to be kind, polite, helpful and to behave well. Our students have a very wide choice of co-curricular activities to take part in, and our small class sizes mean we get to know each child very well as an individual. We also work closely with parents to make sure that every child reaches their full potential whilst they’re with us. Our stimulating working environment means that children are happy to work hard and aim high.
“Kingscourt School successfully meets its aims and provides a good quality of education with some outstanding features. The good curriculum and good teaching and learning from the Early Years Foundation Stage through to the end of Key Stage 2 result in pupils making good progress, except in English where pupils make outstanding progress. Pupils’ outstanding behaviour and spiritual, moral, social and cultural development ensure that pupils become self-assured individuals excited to learn and develop.”
Ofsted, March 2012
