I am delighted to welcome you to our outstanding Academy, sponsored by both the Church of England and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. We have continued to flourish and excel in the provision of an excellent education, unparalleled pastoral care and huge extra curricular opportunities. Our results this summer at both A Level and GCSE are testimony to a real focus on strong teaching and learning and on preparing our students to be successful in their next steps.

Ofsted Outstanding

We are currently graded outstanding by Ofsted and SIAMS, and a member of the SSAT Leading Edge network. In the summer we achieved some of our best ever GCSE and A Level results in terms of both progress and attainment. However, we are much more than a successful, academically focused school.

Our Vision

‘Learning together to flourish’, is lived out every day; a vision informed by our Christian values. We believe in educating the whole child and our Christian values of joy, perseverance, servant leadership, charity and forgiveness underpin everything we stand for.


If you are new to the Academy, you may want to explore this section and find out what makes us unique.

  • Anchored
    Our Christian ethos is at the heart of Academy life. It is a framework that guides us in all we do.
  • Flourish
    We want our students to truly flourish during this time at the Academy. The more traditional taught curriculum is one part of this but our Extended Curriculum offer very much enhances the academic curriculum.
  • Voyage
    Beyond the taught curriculum are bountiful opportunities for students to develop their interests and passions.
