Welcome To Kings Ash Academy!
Kings Ash Academy is a modern, exciting and stimulating environment in which our children are encouraged to do their very best and reach their potential.
Kings Ash Academy opens its doors to children from the age of 2. We are proud of our Nursery provision which is staffed by warm, caring high quality practitioners who aim to give children the best possible start to their school journey. This journey then leads them into Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and onto Key Stage 2. Throughout their time at our school they will be supported and encouraged by adults who are committed to ensuring that they are safe, healthy and happy.
Kings Ash Academy values working with Parents, Carers and the whole community and we believe that the best way to provide for our children is by working together with you. As well as giving our children the very best education and curriculum we also want them to think creatively and collaboratively.
We want them to understand and develop the skills and qualities of excellent learners to enable them to take full advantage of all the opportunities that present themselves in the future.
At Kings Ash Academy we believe that all of our children have the right to learn, have high aspirations and achieve their true potential. Everyone at Kings Ash Academy supports this and strives to do their best.
– Jessica Humphrey, Executive Headteacher
