Ethos

The ethos of The King’s Academy is based on the traditional Christian faith. However, the Academy is non-selective and, as such, is open to children of all faiths and none. We believe that Jesus offers us the perfect example of how to know God and love our neighbour as ourselves. From this belief springs a conviction that every child, irrespective of gender, race, or social background, is made in the image of God and has inherent worth. The King’s Academy is committed to providing a well rounded education in which all children have the opportunity to realise their full potential as human beings – intellectually, socially, physically, spiritually and morally.

The Christian ethos of the Academy means we:
  • Positively value every person attending, working in or associated with the Academy
  • Support, encourage and reward people in the Academy
  • Have high expectations of people and promote the pursuit of personal best
  • Promote grace, gentleness and kindness within the Academy
  • Encourage all to look to the interests of others as well as their own
  • Love others as we would love ourselves
  • Develop an appreciation of the importance of serving others
  • Act fairly, and in a spirit of mutual respect and humility
  • Promote a spirit of joy, excitement and thankfulness in all that we do
  • Present the Christian faith not just in intellectual terms but as a living faith with the ability to affect our individual and corporate lives for good.
