Christian Ethos

Kings Academy is an outstanding Church of England school proud of its Christian character and ethos. Built on an ancient Christian site adjacent to an Anglo-Saxon palace and chapel the historical links to Kingship, Christianity and learning are distinctive and unique qualities that form part of the past, present and future fabric of the school community. All members of the Academy and the Wessex learning trust are encouraged to share and participate in the vision to ‘Believe and succeed’ where all are given the opportunity to flourish and achieve their potential. Jesus’ message of ‘living life in all its fullness’ John 10:10 is promoted by the school values the ‘Kings principles of PRIDE’ and through a varied and broad curriculum; with the aim for everyone to be the best they can be socially, academically or spiritually. An environment of trust is established where students and staff endeavour to share in the school vision to persevere and accomplish their aspirations ‘Blessed are those who have not seen yet believe.’ John 20:29

The Academy works to care, nurture and empower; it recognises and values everyone of all background and faith. It lives and works through a known and overt set of Christian values ‘Kings principles of PRIDE’ which are pivotal to the day to day workings of the Academy. Members of our learning community share the experience of Christian worship, learn about Christianity and other religious and secular viewpoints. Individuals are respected and can develop their own thoughts and character in a supportive and caring environment; each having the freedom to contemplate different perspectives to make their own informed choice about their actions and faith.
